Rafael Nadal Defeats Robin Soderling to Take Fifth French Title

Rafael Nadal raced away with today's French Open final, defeating last year's nemesis Robin Soderling in straight sets, 6-4 6-2 6-4.

The Spaniard, who didn't drop a set throughout the tournament for the second time in his career faced break points early in each of the three sets. After saving them, sometimes in style with points that made you wonder if you were hallucinating, Nadal went on to break Soderling in each set on his way to an inevitable victory.

Undefeated on clay once again all season, Rafael Nadal returns to number 1 in the rankings, ending Roger Federer's overall 285 weeks as world number 1, one week short of match Pete Sampras' record.

The Spaniard now has a chance to extend his lead at the top of the rankings having missed the whole of the grass court season last year through injury. Rafael Nadal's grass season starts this week at Queen's before Wimbledon on June 21st.

Our tennis betting tipster correctly predicted a victory for Rafael Nadal today, as he had been backing him throughout the tournament. I myself took Nadal in-play with the best odds available at 1/3.
