French Champion Denied Title at Paris Open

By Stacey Anderson, Nassau Tennis Club

It’s the second year in a row that the French sensation, Gaël Monfils, was denied a victory at the Paris Open.  Not even the packed house of Parisian fans could get in the way of Robin Soderling. 

Soderling came out strong in the first set, pushing Monfils far behind the baseline and taking advantage of the short ball from Monfils.  Soderling took the opening set 6-1.

Monfils found his rhythm in the second set, giving Soderling a run for his money.   The second set was full of points won at net by both players.  Soderling won 15 out of the 18 points when he came to net.   The second set went to a tie break where Soderling took control winning the match 6-1, 7-6.  It was a very exciting match to watch!

His win in Paris has moved Soderling to number 4 in the World – ahead of Andy Murray.  This is the first master series 1000 title for Soderling.  Now he is off to London to play in the year end finals.
