2008 French Open: A 4th title for Nadal.
The French Open concluded last weekend and once again this year, Rafael Nadal has dominated the competition and won the tournament. A fourth Roland-Garros title in a row!
This last weekend for his fourth victory in a row, Nadal inflicted a severe correction to the great Roger Federer during the final. A victory in three straight sets of 6-1, 6-3 and 6-0. Rafael Nadal is inching closer to Federer in the race for the number one spot in the ATP.
Some health problems encountered by Roger Federer early in this current season has reduced his advantage over Nadal. As Wimbledon is approaching, Federer has now two serious contenders for his number one spot in the world.
Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal have a legitimate shot at a number one spot at the end of the season. Their respective result at Wimbledon as well as Federer's results could give us a good idea of who has the inside track at the number one spot.
My congratulations to Rafael Nadal for his fourth Rolland-Garros title.
On the women's side, Ana Ivanovic has captured her first Grand Slam title in career and deserves all of it. Her constant rise in the rankings is due to her constant work and she banked it this weekend with a great victory over Dinara Safina by 6-4 and 6-3.
