A Mighty Streak Comes To An End


For the first time in 24 consecutive attempts, Roger Federer has failed to reach the semifinal round at one of the game's four major tournaments. This run should stand as one of the truly amazing records in all of sport: a testament to the consistency and determination (and health) of the Swiss player. His loss at the hands of Robin Soderling today in the French Open quarters opens up the possibility that Rafael Nadal could reclaim the #1 ranking in men's tennis this weekend should he win his fifth title on the red clay in Paris. Of course, he may well have to get by Soderling in the final to do that--something Nadal failed to do the last two times they played, including a showdown at Roland Garros twelve months ago (his only loss in the French).
