i think for all of us,this championship is unplanned,because robin had got another one in Rotterdam and Marseille is the back-to-back tournament.

we have no necessary to say some other words.All work had paid!2011 must be an unforgetable year for Robin and us.

next match is the Davis Cup,SWE vs RUS!

After a short rest before another tournament in California,robin played the Sony Ericsson Open.
In first round,he defeated I.Dodig in a close game and then lost to Del Potro in R2.

Robin's sever is not very good in this tournament.a lot of 2nd serves made the match very tough to play.

Now he can have a long rest and make some changes for the clay season.
8.the first tournament for Clay Season-- Open Banco Sabadell(Barcelona):
