Justine Henin, 4-time champion on the courts of Roland Garros, was shunted out of the tournament by Australia's bicepy Sam Stosur, in three sets yesterday. It was a sad moment for me personally, so now all my focus is on The Great Man, who tackles Robin Soderling tonight.
Here is the quarter final draw for both the men and the women:
Roger Federer vs Robin Soderling
Mikhail Youzhny vs Tom Berdych
Jurgen Melzer vs Novak Djokovic
Nicolas Almagro vs Rafael Nadal
Serena Williams vs Sam Stosur
Jelena Jankovic vs Yaroslava Shvedova
Francesca Schiavone vs Caroline Wozniacki
Elena Dementieva vs Nadia Petrova
I've got to say, I hope Wozniacki wins the womens competition. She seems nice and is really good at tennis.
This is where the Grand Slam really starts. The matches are more tight, more intense, as the best players face off with each other. Looking forward to Federer's match with a vastly improving Soderling. Could be close.
