2009 French Open – Men's Singles

Rafael Nadal was the four-time defending champion, but lost in the fourth round to Robin Söderling in a huge upset. This was Nadal's first defeat at the French Open, having won the title in all four of his previous appearances at Roland Garros since debuting in 2005. With Nadal's loss, there would be a first time French Open champion for 2009.

Roger Federer beat Söderling in the final 6–1, 7–6(7–1), 6–4 to win his first French Open title, complete the career Grand Slam, and equal Pete Sampras' then-record of 14 Grand Slam titles. This was Federer's fourth consecutive French Open final, having lost the previous three to Nadal.[1]

Until the 2016 Wimbledon, this was the last Grand Slam tournament that Novak Djokovic failed to reach the quarter-finals. He lost to Philipp Kohlschreiber in the third round.[2]
