In a remarkable Sunday for Rafael Nadal, the Spaniard won his fifth Roland Garros title, returned to No. 1 in the South African Airways 2010 ATP Rankings and became the first player to qualify for the season-ending Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, after defeating Robin Soderling 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 in the final in Paris.

Roger Federer refused to contemplate the potential loss of his world number one status following his shock French Open quarter-final defeat to Robin Soderling.

Lightning struck twice at Roland Garros on Tuesday night as Soderling completed another giant-killing act, 12 months on from his historic defeat of Rafael Nadal.

And while Federer benefited from Nadal’s demise last year by going on to beat Soderling and end his wait for the Grand Slam that had eluded him for so long, it is his arch-rival who stands to gain this time around.

Should the Spaniard – now the overwhelming favourite for a fifth French Open crown – go on to regain the title, he will supplant Federer at top of the world rankings.

He would also deny – temporarily perhaps – the 28-year-old a record-equalling 286th week as number one.

Federer said: "You just take the defeat as it is – you don’t think of the consequences.

“I am most disappointed that I can’t defend my title here.

“I really felt like my tennis was good enough to come here and do it again, but that was not the case.”

Federer’s run of 23 successive Grand Slam semi-final appearances also came to an end on Tuesday night, as did his 12-0 record against Soderling, who produced some inspirational tennis to win in four sets and finally end his hoodoo against the Swiss.
