Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

I think he'll give Olympics a shot. Waiting 4 year for the next must feel awful. Even if he's not completely 100% he can always go and play doubles with Lindstedt. Singles he might go out in R1 but who cares. Then he can hang with the other atheletes in the olympic village and just have fun.

Obviously I hope he shocks everyone and comes back for RG/Wimby put that is a pipe dream at this stage

Anyone knows if he's in Stockholm to practice in the royal tennis hall? I'm in gothenburg sadly otherwise I would investigate

Wimbledon (June 25-July 8)
SkiStar Swedish Open (July 9-15)

If he returns to training after Wimbledon (I hope not, and he slowly begins to right now), we'll not see him before Bercy.

Stockholm Open is just 2 weeks ahead of Bercy. Would be good for a comeback.

I do think Soderling will say something about his recovery when he announces his withdrawal from RG. Don't think he has yet and only a week left so it will happen any day

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Yes, of course, but I deliberately did not write about the Stockholm Open, because I almost hate that stupid Mickey Mouse tournament. As usual, your organizers will invite a tons of top players + all the Argentine national team. I would like to Robin's return in a more relaxed atmosphere than this.In any other tournament except the Stockholm Open.For Robin is always very painful to lose at home.

From Robin's Twitter

Quote:
Jag har inte alls tagit något beslut att lägga ner denna säsongen. Däremot kommer det bli svårt att komma tillbaka i full form till sommaren(In English)I have NOT taken any decision to end this season. But it will probably be difficult to get back in shape this summer.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

probably the first part (about Roland Garros, Wimbledon and Olympic Games) was true, but then someone from the media add "the whole season." stupid.
will wait for a press conference.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Seems to me that there isn't really any "news". It's the same as it was last time. He still doesn't know when he can return, still not recovered.

This is probably due to media harrassing him about RG and his big drop in the rankings. Robin said on his twitter that an SVT employee (swedish state television) had become very angry with him and even cursing him for not getting the answers wanted.

Media is really not making friends with Robin atm and he might give even less official statements if they keep this up. The press conference is more or less forced so he gets them off his back for a while.

I wait until his presser on the 21st but I'm happy if it's true he hasn't pulled the plug on the entire season. I mean saying he can't play in October/November now in May would maybe mean retirement.

Now I think he will just say he's still working on getting back but he doesn't know when.

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Soderling will have a press conference and express himself and his thougts for the future on may 21th.
according to his twitter, swedish media has been calling him down pretty much latley due to EU summer season is here and FO, wimbly and olympics ofc. they also say he is not going to participate in these tournaments but he has not yet decided if he will continue in 2012 or take this year off.

21 may we will know....stay tuned folks and pray to the gods that Sod will be back in action some day to kill top 4 dominance once more!

Re: Soderking Chat Thread vol.1

Seems like Robin got a little angry at the expert saying their could be economical reasons he's trying to get back. It wasn't that stupid of a statement even if Robin clearly has made a lot of money and is living in Monte Carlo where the tax is very low. Some pro's burn a lot of money on houses, cars, or whatever and haven't planned their career could end at any time. Robin was smart, many athletes are not.

Anyway, I don't think it works in his favor to call out media persons. He should probably just suck it up. When/If he gets back the same media persons he's been calling out will get a shot at revenge...especially if it goes very bad for him. That could turn ugly
