The French Open title has been won by an unseeded player just four times in total, the most recent being Gaston Gaudio two years ago. The Argentine player's feat was all the more impressive when a glance down the list of his victims is taken - Guilhermo Canas, Jiry Novak, but also Leyton Hewitt (12th seed), David Nalbandian (8th seed) and Guilhermo Coria (5th seed) in the final.
