Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Some more info

Physician's recommendation is that he will rest in December and hopefully start to turn a bit at the end of December to see how his body reacts.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

He will skip the AO and i think that's good. No need to go all the way to Australia and play best of 5 in that heat also his record there is terrible.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

booooooooooooooooo. but it was expected. He never liked that slam anyway and the heat and travel wouldn't do him any good.

But yes ofc it means another 0 and another -180ps in his ranking that goes down the drain. Now he really must do well in the european indoor swing or he could find himself around #25-30 before Indian Wells/Miami

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Robin is on the fresh entry list to Aussie Open, so he hasn't formally withdrawn.

It does not matter, he will withdraw now or next month, he will not play in any case

It makes me feel better anyway. Most sane tennis players, let alone a top one, wouldn't want to withdraw 7 weeks in advance to a slam barring a physical injury/planned operation. Plus it's a small sign he's indeed getting better(and not just words).

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

He will try to practice only in late December, he just don't have time to prepare for such a big tournament. The fact of his presence in the list does not mean anything at all, don't be fooled.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

I'm not saying he's going to play there or that it would make sense, just that it's a greater sign than words that he's feeling better. For instance, he pulled out of the Qatar tournament before the entry list came but he didn't do it this time. He had the option not to sign up at all but he did. That's the facts we have.

I'd like to point out that every single article is based on the same interview coming from a news bureau, and the original quotes say nothing specifically about Australian Open or any other tournament(because his agent doesn't want to answer on direct questions about it). I just feel that we are reading too much into a very brief interview with an agent, whose job is to protect the client. Reading between the lines is fine, but not facts.

Flame away

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

From Robin's twitter and FB:

Hello my friends. I am very sorry for being away for so long and for not giving many updates but my recovery has been longer than expected. I am feeling better with each day but it will still take some time before I can start practicing in full speed. My goal is to start with practice in January and I hope for tournament comeback in February but at this stage it is hard to know when and where. I hope my body will allow me to do that. I will try to give you more updates. I love reading your messages and appreciate your support and encouragement very much.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

He shedules to come back in Montpellier, hope he can, I miss him and I'm not the only one. A guy who trashed Armanifatbutt in RG deserves my admiration and respect
