Re: 2010 tournament thread

Hi Tori And welcome to the brand new Soderling Forum

Not much confirmed yet, apart from his first tournament which will be Chennai, then the Australian Open. Obviously then there will be the obligatory GS and Masters, plus one assumes his "home" tourneys of Bastad in July and Stockholm in October. I've heard rumour he'll play Rotterdam too. I'm sure some of the Swedish posters here will have heard more in their national press.

Re: 2010 tournament thread

We won't relax too long, will we?
Quote:
ABU DHABI // Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, making his UAE debut, will get the Capitala World Tennis Championship under way against Nikolay Davydenko on December 31 after the pair were pitted together for the curtain-raiser of the annual tournament.

Victory over the Russian at the Abu Dhabi International Tennis Complex would see last year’s Australian Open finalist set up a semi-final showdown with world No 2 Rafael Nadal, who has been given a first-round bye for the second year running.

In the other half of the draw Stanislas Wawrinka, replacing Fernando Verdasco who pulled out to rest a recurring foot injury, will meet world No 9 Robin Soderling in the opening day’s second match, with world No 1 Roger Federer waiting to meet the winner the following afternoon. The third-place play-off and final will take place on January 2.
See you Dec 31

Re: 2010 tournament thread

Hopefully, Robin has a better schedule for the last part of 2010. He played too many small tournaments in vain this year.

Re: 2010 tournament thread - first post updated

Yes, this is Robin's latest tweet:

"To all of you asking, this is my schedule for January: Abu Dhabi-Chennai-Kooyong-Melbourne...."

That is pretty rough schedule again. I noticed Nole is just playing Kooyong before the Australian Open, for example. The Abu Dhabi event with six players shouldn't involve too many matches though.

Re: 2010 tournament thread - first post updated

Robin's next match is Thursday vs. Stan Wawrinka:

The 2010 season is upon us
http://communities.canada.com/montre...s-upon-us.aspx


The first big event for the men starts Thursday, the Capitala World Championships – a grandiose name for a six-man exhibition in Abu Dhabi.

The field isn't what it was last year, when Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal were joined by Andy Murray, Andy Roddick, James Blake and Nikolay Davydenko. Murray ended up winning the whole thing, starting his 2009 season off with a bang by defeating both Federer and Nadal (who was No. 1 at the time). He's skipping it this time, choosing instead to team up with teenage phenom Laura Robson at the mixed Hopman Cup event in Perth.

This one has Federer and Nadal, with Davydenko, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Robin Soderling and Stanislas Wawrinka (who replaces Fernando Verdasco, who pulled out last month because of the foot situation that prevented him from playing singles in Davis Cup, and hampered him much of the second half of the season).

This is fairly clearly a big money grab for the players, above and beyond the supposed "winner-take-all" prize of $250,000 U.S.

It starts on Thursday, with Soderling playing Wawrinka (the winner plays Federer in a semi-final on Friday), and Tsonga playing Davydenko (the winner plays Nadal)

Nalby: 2010 Legg Mason ATP 500 Champion (Welcome back!! )
Nole: 2009 Paris Bercy Masters & 2010 Dubai ATP500 Champion
Soderking: 2010 ABN AMRO Rotterdam ATP500 Champion
Baggy: 2010 Sydney Champion

Thursday already? Oh my the time has flown by.

So he's been confirmed then? It would be a bit silly to risk making the injury worse unless it's fully healed.

Yes, hard to believe, isn't it? Yea, he is already speaking with the local press and a few articles have been published today.

Robin's last tweet:

"In Abu Dhabi"

=============================

Nadine, I am tired of hearing about his elbow injury. We've had to have that issue in the back of our minds since the German Open in July. I hope if it is still an issue after the Australian Open, he takes a month or two off. His time off this year was pretty limited and after this exhibition, he heads off to Chennai January 4-10th:

And then Kooyong and then the Australian Open. Not the kind of schedule you would think would be good if his elbow is still iffy.

Re: 2010 tournament thread - first post updated

I'm not sure I'm supportive of such a schedule. He'll be worn out by Aus Open. The thing is though that's standing in his way of taking some time out after the AO is greed. He has an opportunity to gain so many points until RG and he'll need to if he intends on staying in the top 10 as his ranking will drop quite dramatically if doesn't repeat his French Open performance next year. Bah. And then there's the lucrative money deals too.

I just hope he doesn't regret this packed pre-AO schedule in the near future.

Re: 2010 tournament thread - first post updated

Live stream options:

http://www.myp2p.eu/broadcast.php?ma...03&part=sports

Ok, this is my understanding of what is going on with the exhibition match, but I could be wrong, so if someone has better information, please post it:

This would be true if the Capitala World Tennis Championship web site is correct:
http://www.capitalawtc.com/en/Home.aspx#

The Davydenko/Ferrer match (Tsonga withdrew due to injury) is due to start at 3 pm in Abu Dhabi. It is currently 2 pm there now. That match should begin at 11 am GMT, or in just over 1 hour.

Robin's match with Stan will begin right after that match and is slated for 4:30 pm, so it should begin sometime around 12:30 pm GMT.

The scoreboard countdown off the confusing Capitala web site went to 0:00 a few hours ago, so I have no idea now what it was counting down. But I have checked live scores and nothing is in progress. That is also probably why none of the live stream links are working.

The live stream at http://www.rajangan.net/ shows the Capitala World Tennis Championshipbeginning in 1 hour, so it agrees with the Capitala web site. I'll check it out in an hour to see if the Kolya/Ferru match has begun. At least Robin's match is the second one, so if there is any confusion over getting a live link or score, all efforts will have been attempted with a match in play before his match begins.

If anyone gets any updated information, please let us know.

Re: 2010 tournament thread - first post updated

Update and great news!!

From Sport finally is listing a link to a live stream for the

ATP Abu Dhabi World Challenge

http://www.fromsport.com/c-4.html

This has always been a reliable stream from my experience.

I believe the Kolya match should begin in about 45 minutes, but this is a major relief!!
========
Update: Both links are working and the matches are about to begin.

Second link if problems with the first one:

The live stream at http://www.rajangan.net/ shows the Capitala World Tennis Championship
------------
I received word that this link didn't freeze like the other ones, so give this one a shot in the Fed match later today:
