Robin Söderling is best known for reaching successive French Open finals in 2009 and 2010. In both tournaments, he defeated the defending champion en route to the final — Rafael Nadal in 2009 (becoming the first and, to date, only player to defeat Nadal at the French Open), and Roger Federer in 2010 (ending Federer's record streak of 23 consecutive Grand Slam semifinals). His biggest title of his career came at the 2010 Paris Masters.
Söderling was previously coached by former world no.2 Magnus Norman, but it was announced on December 1, 2010 that they will not continue their collaboration. Robin Söderling announced in early December 2010 that his new coach was to be Claudio Pistolesi.
