Tennis: Nadal captures 5th Roland Garros Title

Rafael Nadal beats out Robin Soderling in straight set 6-4 6-2 6-4 to capture his 5th French Open title earlier today in Paris, France. He is within one French Open title to tie with the all-time French Open title holder, Bjorn Borg; and with this win, Nadal supplants Roger Federer as the world's number 1 player!

He mentioned in the award ceremony that this rank as one of the most emotional win in his young career and also mentioned that he had to play his absolute best in order to beat Soderling today. Both players will be playing in Wimbledon in two weeks where the surface will be 180 degree different and the dynamics will be refreshed, until then!
