Maybe the greatest moment of his career. The decline obviously in gear, Federer recovered from another crushing blow against Nadal in Australia, beating Robin Soderling in the Roland Garros final 6-1, 7-6, 6-4. Nadal lost to Soderling in the fourth round, to date his only defeat in the tournament. Federer won his 14th grand slam, tying things up with Pete Sampras at the top of the charts, and completing a career grand slam.
