look at the point at 5.50...I think it happened on this point...
Yes I think you are correct also about the time it happened. This is not good news at all. Got to wonder why Robin didn't retire right away because he must have been in some pain throughout the rest of the match AND risked an even bigger tear. The positive news is that it wont really prevent his RG start. It's not the type of injury that makes you unable to move or so and it generally heals quite well. But the training and preparations will need to be changed. Maybe postpone the tennis training and do some low intensity cardio training etc to keep the body and the healing going and wait as long as possible to get back to the court.
Felt during the match with Djokovic that Soderling really gave it all in terms of defense and seems like he paid for it. Should have opened slower. Maybe Murray watched the match at his hotel...
He looked to me like he held back. Could have been the injury or that he was just taking it slow not to risk injury. He clearly had a gear above the opponent IF he turned it on. But i do think he is still feeling the injury/afraid to make it worse
Good performance in Dusseldorf. Shame with the swedish team however. If something happens to Soderling swedish tennis would look horrible. Good news is that his groin isn't bothering him much at all but even if it did he wouldn't talk about so hard to be completely sure. Also nice milestone career milestone with 300 wins. Also noted he went over $10M career prize money recently. His career really picked up since 2009!
Now for the dreaded RG. QF would be acceptable. SF would be very very good. Final for the 3rd straight year? If that happens it would be insane. If he wins? Well that would be a miracle and will make MTF go crazy especially if he takes down Nadal/Djokovic (or even more crazy: both of them). One can only dream. Think chances are there for another classic Soderling RG at least.
