In 2010, Nadal had briefly dropped to No.4 in the rankings for the first time since 2005. He had missed a lot of tournaments in the previous year, due to his knee related issues. Nadal truly began to rebuild his game once the earth turned red.
Nadal was once again dominant on clay and won every Masters event played on the surface leading upto the French Open winning his 6th consecutive Monte Carlo event. He also won in Rome and brought his 17 ATP Masters title, equaling Andre Agassi's record.
Most expected Federer and Nadal to meet again in the 2010 French Open final but Federer lost in the quarterfinals to Robin Soderling 6-3, 3-6, 5-7, 4-6. Soderling then went on to the final to square off against Nadal in a repeat of the previous years' fourth round match which brought about Nadal's one and only defeat at Roland Garros. The Spaniard had not dropped a single set along the course of the tournament and was in no mood of doing so when he met the Swede in the final. Nadal won the final in three sets where he outplayed Soderling and avenged his defeat.
