The 2009 French Open has so far lived up to its promise to be another spectacular Grand Slam as Spaniard Rafael Nadal tries to win a record fifth consecutive title.
Nadal is also on the way to become only the second person after Rod Laver to have captured all the four Grand Slam titles in the same year. Rod Laver achieved the feat 40 years ago and the envious record that has stayed so long looks to being equalled by the swashbucking Spaniard.
Nadal has grown from strength to strength and has grown in stature since dethroning Federer from the No 1 spot.
Nadal is through to the fourth round of the Roland Garros where he will meet Robin Soderling of Sweden. This is after the current world No. 1 manhandled the former No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt, 6-1, 6-3, 6-1, on Friday.
The one question going through the minds of the Fans is how can the juggernaut called Rafael Nadal be stopped. Maybe we will be having one more of Nadal-Federer duel to settle it and with all due respect to Federer, Nadal seems the man of the moment and it seems very unlikely that he will be stopped en route to creating history.
