Wednesday 6 December 2023

In 2009, Roger Federer reached his fourth consecutive Roland-Garros final. But for the first time, the Swiss is not facing his greatest rival Rafael Nadal. The world No.2 plays against the upset of this edition, Sweden's Robin Söderling, who beat the Majorcan in fourth round. At the end of a well-controlled match (6-1, 7-6(1), 6-4), he won his 14th Grand Slam tournament, becoming the 6th player in history to add his name to the list of winners at every Major.
