Robin apparently too weak yet :

at least it hints he's back practicing. When he missed Beijing/Shanghai it's Valencia/Paris that is the next important block.

Stockholm doesn't matter to his ranking or to 2012. Pure bonus!

Moreover, he now trains every day. Today he will play with Bjorkman. So he still hopes to return to the tour in Stockholm, let's see how it goes.

Points for Stockholm will not be superfluous, if he loses points for Brisbane and Marseille in early 2012.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Oh man, Robin really wants to win Stockholm I guess... not that I blame him, he's been watching that tournament (and Båstad) since he was a kid. But I really hope he doesn't push himself too hard now.

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Could be a good place to start playing on homesoil and no pressure what so ever. The field could turn out to be a joke aswell without Monfils and Delpo!!


So sad right now to see how low quality Beijing and Shanghai will turn out to be and Robin can't take advantage of it at all. But Fish,Berdych and Tsonga and even Ferrer will gain even more ground...

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Damn you got really good info. I was worried for a while but seeing that he is practicing everyday it seems like very likely he will give Sthlm a shot.

Monfils is probably out and who knows about Delpo. Would be pretty crazy if Robin can go deep and would mean the world to him after all the recent setbacks. Just hope the crowd doesn't get disappointed if he crashes out early because everyone might not be aware of how long he's been away from tennis.

Nice that he practices with Björkman. Should teach him more volley technique and maybe some doubles tricks if Soderling has to play DC doubles in 2012 (hope not)

Re: Robin SoderKing's 2011

Happy to see/read him back practicing. I'd also say he should give Stockholm a shot if he feels fit enough to play. And as you said, even if he loses he won't lose points, but if he gets far he could make some points for next year (if he doesn't defend Brisbane and/or Marseille).
Another reason would be that he wouldn't be THAT rusty if he came back in Valencia and already played at least one match. We see that every year at the Canada Masters how rusty the top guys are after this long break and Robin was ill so he'd be even more rusty / probably not fit enough for grueling 3-setters (although these don't happen that often in the indoor season, courts are at least a bit faster except Valencia).

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4
