OMG!!!! I just checked the internet and found out that Federer has lost to Soderling in the Roland Garros QUARTER FINALS!!! ;_;
It was the end of his streak of consecutive semi-final appearances! 23!!! And no one has ever done that many before. That's like... 6 years of always getting to the semi-finals. Federer made a joke about how now he guesses he can set a quarter final streak. xD
But yes.. It's really upsetting because I really wanted to see a Federer vs Nadal final and maybe see Federer take the title.
What's worse is that now Federer's no.1 spot is up for grabs if Nadal manages to win the tournament ... which he's done every year since ever pretty much. Except of course last year when he himself lost to Soderling. So he's hoping that Soderling wins just because it would be really interesting and awesome for Soderling to be pretty much destroying everyone on clay. all the big players. And yes.. then Federer keeps he's no.1 spot and matches Pete Sampras' record of 286 weeks as a no.1 player. It's only one week that Fed is missing!!!!! So close!! So I really hope something amazing happens. ><
So.. I probably sound all depressed about it and yes I am a little but maybe because Federer himself doesn't seem to be so down about it, I'm actually not feeling all that bad either. Maybe it's because he already managed to win this title before that it's not as heartbreaking for him or for me. So I will get over it and watch his Wimbledon matches later. But yes.. I just had to rant about it because it's pretty big news.
Soderling has now beaten both Fed and Nadal on clay while they were no.1 so yea... omg I just realised that Fed got his no.1 spot back last year because he won the french open. And if he loses it now... it'll be like.. Nadal and Fed passing the title back and forth and the no.1 place with it... =_=;;; and here's the stuff you can read about the match
