    10 % Nadal – 7 of 67
    11 % Federer – 9 of 77

    Third straight final in Paris between these two… Federer’s worst defeat in ‘the best of five’ format. He had a break point at 3-all in the 2nd set to lose nine straight games. Nadal became the first French Open champion without losing a set since Bjorn Borg in 1980. The Swede won twice this tournament not dropping a set (lost just 32 games in 1978 & 38 games in 1980; Nadal dropped 41 games in 2008).

    Nadal’s impressive route to his fourth consecutive title in Paris:
    1 Thomas Bellucci 7-5, 6-3, 6-1
    2 Nicolas Devilder 6-4, 6-0, 6-1
    3 Jarkko Nieminen 6-1, 6-3, 6-1
    4 Fernando Verdasco 6-1, 6-0, 6-2
    Q Nicolas Almagro 6-1, 6-1, 6-1
    S Novak Djokovic 6-4, 6-2, 7-6(3)
    W Roger Federer 6-1, 6-3, 6-0
