Nadal No Worries With Soderling This Year At French

Rafael Nadal played easily beat the Number 5 seed Robin Soderling of Sweden in straight sets 6-4, 6-2, and 6-4. Nadal won his fifth French Open championship, his seventh Grand Slam title overall, and earned a return to the top ranking in the world. He'll switch places with Roger Federer when the new numbers come out Monday.

"I lost last year because I was not well-prepared, and I had very low morale last year, as well..."

That, and he's not injured anymore, either...

Here's the last game of the match...
((HT: TF1/ATP/Siphodias92))

Here's some post-game analysis from Brad Gilbert...

Nadal is 38-1 at Roland Garros and, three days after his 24th birthday, stands just one French Open title shy of Bjorn Borg's record of six. For the second time in three years, Nadal won the tournament without losing a set.
