...That's weird, then. I could have sworn watching the match the score was 6-2, 6-7, 6-4, 7-6, with Soderling winning three of those sets. Sure enough, I checked it on the internet and that seems to have been the score. I thought when one player takes three sets and the other only one, then the player with three sets has beaten the other one.

Have the rules changed?
