Top (L-R) 2008 Women's Champion Ana Ivanovic of Serbia and Dinara Safina, 2008 Runner-up from Russia. Bottom (L-R) 2008 Runner-up Roger Federer of Switzerland and Rafael Nadal, 2008 Men's Champion from Spain
This year's 2008 French Open is all but a dissaponitment. First, Rafael Nadal was still unstoppable and Ana Ivanovic was so consistent, she was considered good.
Roger Federer was no contest at all when Rafa demolished him in the finale. I don't wanna mention the scoreline but it makes you wanna feel convinced that Roger MIGHT never get his much sought-after French Open crown.
Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Dementieva and Jelena Jankovic all lost in the final rounds of the tournament with Dinara Safina looming as the sentimental favorite to win the tournament. After convincing disposals of both Sharapova and Kuznetsova, it was a sad feeling to see her lose it out to Ana Ivanovic, the new women's number one.
For Federer, it is another sad ending to an already lackluster clay season. The year's first half has all been but a dissapointment to the man-god. Nadal was so superlative throughout the tournament.
However, only true-blue losers would sulk over the idea of being depressed because of a stupid loss. Roger Federer feels his time would still come. Go Roger, keep on believing.
