Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Robin would prob have faced Fed in Rotterdam. A medium level 250 is where he should start playing.

According to the news source the decision is not due to any recent setbacks, the argument is just that it is risky to rush things (and I guess it is not meaningful to compete before you are back at a decent level).
Sad but maybe clever in the long run. Also he probably doesn't want to be labeled some kind of betrayer for skipping DC and then coming back and maybe even winning a tournament like when he skipped DC last year and then won Båstad just days later. Many people didn't like that

Sweden is doomed vs Serbia but it would still look strange if Soderling said he couldn't play (Swedens team is in desperate need) and then showed up shortly after to play Rotterdam

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

btw the ranking situation is starting to look awful....he will probably be out of top20 before his comeback starts. Going to get some tough draws

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

But now he probably will start from Indian Wells Masters (if he would not withdraw from this tournament too)

To be honest I don't understand why he had included his name in the Rotterdam's list , if he was not going to play there.Now he gets another penalty (third ). so stupid...

I don't think this is the main reason. He obviously is not ready to play (far enough from this). Even his coach Fidde worked with an junior boy Ymer in Växjö a week ago. (http://www.ymertennis.com/?p=654)
So a week ago they haven't even started the overall work with Robin (maybe not started so far)

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

I hope he works out with his physical trainer (still Ali Ghelem I think) and whatever other guys he got in his team. I don't think he needs Rosengren until it's tournament time. His biggest use is tactics and analyzing opponents anyway

But I don't know really what's up. I'm starting to think there is some personal reasons/motivation issues too in addition to the mono aftermath. Because it's stupid to act like making a comeback after 6 months would be dangerous after mono. Mono is a virus and he will have it for the rest of his life. If his not resistant now he never will be. He could wait years without any difference. Either his comeback ends like Ancic with career-end or it will work just fine once he commits to tennis full-time.

Sooner or later he must take the chance and just see what happens

I can't believe you're serious

In fact, if Robin really started light training only in late December-early January, February is too early date for play in tournaments. When he will able to train fully, he needs ( that other players have done in the offseason) - hard training for 3-4 weeks for 5-7 hours every day.Only then we can talk about participation in tournaments.
hope he will be ready for spring Masters.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Very disappointed to read in the Dutch papers today that Robin has indeed withdrawn his entry from Rotterdam. I've been looking forward to see him in action over there again.
But of course his health comes first. I can only hope for the best... things are really starting to look damn serious now. One can't imagine what this must do to his confidence. Robin

Google 'epstein-barr virus' in combination with 'Ancic, Mario'...

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Any news?

Painful with another slam where the top4 makes the semis. Soderling is so needed. Is he on court practicing? What is the plan now that he cancelled Rotterdam? Why can't he take part in some exhibition match for fun? Why is he always so silent and mysterious?

So many questions but I don't expect any answers

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

The sad thing is that even if he comes back, will he ever be back to his 2009-2010 (or Bastad 2011) level?

It's empty a slam without him even if he would have lost to federer in QF and i'm vastly disapointed he didn't try out Rotterdam and its fast court...
