The 2010 Paris Open showcased the Men’s Singles Final on Sunday 14 November at the Palais Omnisports in Bercy, France between No.4 seed Robin Soderling and No.12 seed Gael Monfils in a rematch of their Valencia Quarter Final just over a week ago.
The 26-year-old Soderling extended his record over the 24-year-old Monfils by winning in straight sets to move to 3-0 against the French man in their head-to-head matches. The 1.93m Soderling won 6-1, 7-6 (7-1) to win his first major title in 1 hour and 17 minutes on the indoor hard court of Central Court.
The 1.93m Soderling will have a new career high ranking of No.4 today after claiming his first ATP Tour Masters 1000 title to overtake Andy Murray and move within distance of surpassing Novak Djokovic at No.3 at the ATP Tour Finals in London one week from now.
