2010 French Open – Men's Singles

Roger Federer was the defending champion, but lost in the quarterfinals to Robin Söderling in the rematch of the previous year's final. This was the first time since the 2004 French Open that Federer did not reach the semifinals of a Grand Slam tournament. Between the 2004 French Open and the 2017 French Open, this was the only Grand Slam not to feature either Federer or Novak Djokovic in the semifinals.[1][2]

Rafael Nadal won his fifth French Open title by defeating Söderling in the final, 6–4, 6–2, 6–4, in a rematch of the previous year's fourth round match.[3] Nadal finished the tournament without having dropped a set for the second time (the first time was in 2008). By winning the title, Nadal regained the ATP no. 1 singles ranking from Federer, who was in contention to break Pete Sampras' record of 286 weeks at number 1.
