The match was played on Suzanne Lenglen court and preceded by a moment of silence due to an Air France aircraft catastrophe from a day before… Soderling [25] confirmed that his sensational victory over Nadal wasn’t a fluke. The Swede began the quarterfinal with 15/40 on serve, but from that moment to the end he was controlling the outcome. Davydenko [11] known for his fast ground-stroke was simply one pace too slow and couldn’t employ “plan B” because he never had it. In the 2nd set he tried his best, but it was only enough to build a 3:2* (30/0) lead having held twice from a break point down. The Swede won 10 out of 11 final games to finish it with an ace.
