Heavily favored Rafael Nadal has been knocked out of the 2009 French Open as has another contender with short odds, women's tennis player Ana Ivanovic.

Nadal was defeated by huge long shot, Robin Soderling of Sweden. 

Nadal has dominated the French Open since his first match on the red clay at Roland Garros. In his 31 previous matches, he had lost only seven sets -- the last one coming against Roger Federer in the 2007 final.

Nadal had won three of the last four major titles, missing out only on the U.S. Open. Because he won the Australian Open, he had been the only man with a chance to complete a Grand Slam.

He had also been trying to become the first man to win five straight French Open titles.

Soderling was seeded 23rd at this year's French Open. 

Soderling would pay out approximately US$500 for every US1 bet at Sportingbet.
