French Open (2011) Roland Garros quarter-final

Rafael Nadal beat Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia 7-5, 6-3, 6-3 on Court Philippe Chatrier. It was the 224th clay-court win of his career (224-18) and he now has a 7-2 record against 32-year-old Ljubicic. and now finds himself in the quarter-finals of the French Open. The world No. 1 hasn’t lost a set since his first round clash against John Isner, and arguably remains the favourite to win this competition. That said, Novak Djokovic has been superb this season, and many pundits feel that the Serb is the man to beat.

Nadal still has a lot to do before he can think about facing Djokovic. His quarter-final opponent here will be Robin Soderling, the world No. 5. Soderling is a two-time runner-up in this event, and appears to present a serious threat to Nadal’s title bid. The Swede has won all of his matches in this competition in straight sets, and has every right to be considered as a major contender here himself.

Robin Soderling earned his place in the quarter-finals as he disappointed French hopeful Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-3, 7-6(5) in two hours and 16 minutes.
came into Roland Garros having won nine of his past 11 matches, reaching back-to-back quarter-finals at Madrid (losing to Federer) and Rome (losing to Djokovic) and winning three matches for Sweden at the Power Horse World Team Cup in Dusseldorf. He opened the season in strong form, winning three titles in his first four tournaments at Brisbane (defeated Roddick), Rotterdam (defeated Tsonga) and Marseille (defeated Cilic).
