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.
Lleyton played on painkillers, according to this I can only admire his efforts, that would help their country, if Robin is not ready to play, then of course he should not play.

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.
He got a pretty humiliating loss to Florian Mayer in 2010 and looked kinda devastated. But we all know what happened after that. He won Bercy that year.

I think he would be more devastated to miss it. He loves playing at home. Even if he is rusty the serve alone is good enough to keep the scoreline respectable even if he losses.

But i really don't want a final vs Del Potro anymore, the H2H is starting to look pretty bad as it is. Robin doesn't need a new nemesis now that his old nemesis is starting to fade.

I don't think so.
in addition to all his troubles he loses a lot of muscle mass (already lost and will lose more) and will be quite weak. It takes months to return to normal form.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Depends. we know so little about his recovery. Sure if he spent most of september in bed then Stockholm is out of question. If he spent like 1-2 weeks in bed then there is hope.

I'm worried for his entire career if he spent like 4 weeks in bed. Ancic was 6 weeks in bed and later the mono problems cost him the career.

On the other hand he could take it as an opportunity to slim down a little. Both Djokovic and Mardy Fish dropped some muscle and that took them to new heights for 2011 :/ I think it could prolong his career as well getting a little break and recover the knees and foot to 100%. Got to find something positive in this even if it's hard

I don't think Robin must become thinner, he will not be able to play the style that we all love. His game is built on power, look at Tsonga, it is much larger and he feels good and is not going to lose weight.

This is the single positive thing in this situation.
...of course if he is going to play ever...

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

MaxPower is overly positive and AgnRus is overly negative. Robin will be back, let's just go from there.

Yes, and if put together, it turns out the balance. Health to him, and let he soon come back, but at the same time not neglecting the health, necessary to fully recover.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

lol yeah but imo he played the tennis of his career in Båstad. The reason for it was that the new coach Rosengren is starting to give effect and that he's starting to get more variation and more confidence at the net. The return games were amazing too getting most serves in play and dishing out bagels and breadsticks like no tomorrow. Mentally and tactically he looked like a slam winner

I was really hyped up the later part of the season as a result but it all turned to a disaster because of the wrist injury and the mono. At the same time those tactical additions and mental strength he developed won't go anywhere. When his health is back I'm not worried for his game.

And the more I think about it the future will be sort of motivating as a fan too. Not many points to defend in slams and masters in 2012. Federer, Fish and Ferrer all being older than him. Berdych/Tsonga and Monfils all guys he got a good H2H against. I don't see any reason for panic yet. He can work his way up even higher than 5 in 2012 (if he can remain healthy)

Even this year he could end with 5-6 titles if lucky and a solid W/L ratio despite all those gifted losses and tournament withdrawals.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Wonder if ATP signed a sponsorship deal with Colgate since everyone was supposed to smile big Some of the smiles are so forced. Better to do like Del Potro or Petzchner then

I liked the old gangsta Soderling photo where he looked a bit angry. He is so nice off-court anyway. Just read he gave a 50 000kr scholarship to some new and promising tennis brothers in Sweden.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

It does not matter, forget about London, sorry but nothing can be done. we even don't know exactly will he play at this season or not. Currently there are no signs that he trains. nothing at all.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

London is forgotten long ago. But Federer and Djokovic not playing is very bad. He'll be 13th in the race after Shanghai most likely. The fall in the race is faster than I expected and with no chance to gain points in Sthlm or DC it's only Valencia and Paris left or he might walk into 2012 as #13-14 somewhere. Makes for an interesting AO but after all he defends 3 titles those first months too...

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Maybe Robin will get better Draws ranked 12th then he got as nr 4 and 5 in the world


Seriously tennis is in a sad state right now. Delpo and Robin not playing the game and mugs like Simon, Almagro and Tipsarevic entering the top 10.
