So the badass goes ass up and takes a straight set beating from Roger Federer. Robin Soderling played like a man possessed against all of his previous opponents and yet today he could barely assemble a game let alone a plan. The fact that he got the second set to a tiebreak is the only thing he can look back on with any sense of pride.
Of course Roger's fans are ecstatic and will use this win as proof of his being one of tennis greatest ever players and they have every right to be happy. It does give one pause though when the only player in the men's semi's to have ever beaten Federer was not across the net for the Final. Federer's record against the other three semi finalists was 38-1.
Congratulations on your win Roger.

Why was this man widely reported to have been a disgruntled Spanish tennis fan by people who were watching? How was this man allowed to get on court in view of what happened to Monica Seles? Why ask why? If this could happen during a Final at Roland Garros what can happen at other venues?
That flag in his hand was also reported by observers to be a Spanish flag.
