If Soderling withdraws after all it means he is the true superstar (or more likely that he was a bit day to day and couldn't really decide until last minute AGAIN)

thats why i was pretty sure today as Jenni said she was heading to the airport and no statement from the organizers that he is indeed coming. The organizers always want the players there a bit ahead if possible so they can do some media activities and promotion for the tournament. So no doubt they have been told already if he can't play

So you mean that the organization has known robin will not come.what they will do is just make an announcement before the beginning of the match??

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

From FB

"Robin Söderling
I am very sorry to disappoint my fans, tournaments, and sponsors but I am still not able to play Asia tour. I was looking forward to coming to Asia but unfortunately my mono is not completely cured yet and so I have to take another month off... I can't wait to be back on the court but I have to be patient. I hope to be ready for Stockholm Open in the middle of October. Thank you to all of you for your support - your encouraging messages help me to get through this difficult time."

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Freaking disaster. As I predicted the organizers probably knew then and choose not to write anything on their homepage or mention it to the ATP.

The statement signals he is nowhere near a comeback for Beijing either. They could have announced that he isn't going to Thailand long ago just like Federer did for Shanghai.

Sadly I must say it's getting a little stupid from Robin screwing with his fans like this. If you remain on the maincard this close to a tournament you are expected to play unless you get a some short time injury.

Guys with long term injury or sickness got no reason to wait until the tournament qualifying even started. I see no valid reason for waiting so long. Maybe the organizers forced him but as I said it's getting stupid now because he wasn't even close

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Hey AgnRus why does he get a penalty 0 for Beijing? I took this from the ATP FAQ

Quote:
All direct acceptance players at the time of the entry deadline who do not play will receive a 0-pointer in their ranking.

A player who is out of competition for 30 or more days, due to a verified injury, will not receive any penalties.
Hasn't he been out of competition for more than 30 days by Beijing? Only injury count and sickness does not?

I'm fully agree with Fidde,respect to him.I hope he will not leave Robin in this difficult period of his career.
The only important thing - Robin's health, everything else does not matter at all.

And one more thing - I really don't want him to start playing in Stockholm, because the Stockholm tournament means a lot to him. He can not win the tournament after such a long break in the game. It will be yet another humiliation at home.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

If he doesn't play Asia he will hardly play Sthlm. He will not play another match in 2011 i think and will drop out of the top 10 sadly.

Why humiliation, he must also begin with something that him needs to be playing practice.

Pasha, Lleyton also received a practice a week ago at the Davis Cup match, have you enjoyed? I think not.
I just express my opinion.
I'm just afraid another defeat from Nalbandian / Del Potro will be very offensive for Robin. Please, not now and not in Stockholm.
