Robin "the Toad" Söderling to make possible comeback at DC semis

http://www.gp.se/gp/jsp/Crosslink.jsp?d=128&a=367458

The main points of the article are that the Toad will be ready to play in the Davis Cup.

- He saw a specialist in Italy as a safety measure and was able to train without pain in Stockholm.

- Pim Pim is also a possibility, along with Tomas Johansson, Jonas Björkman, US Open winner Simon Aspelin and the lefty Robert Lindstedt to be selected, it will become clearer closer to the event.

- The surface really suits us and gives a low bounce, says Nystrom.

Gustfasson and Apell played Edberg/Larsson is a gimmick/stunt match on the roof of the Scandinavium.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Sorry - I've completely missed it in recent weeks. What's his injury?

He had a left wrist problem, he suffered while leading against Safin in Montreal.

Left wrist if I'm not mistaken.

I see .. I saw that match in Montreal, but completely forgot to investigate afterwards what the actual injury was .. Soderling was killing Safin early on.

Yes, he was giving him a good beatdown in the match.

Thing is this match really won't be about tennis, cause it will be an ice rank, so mainly about serve.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Go the Toad.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Robin "the Toad" Söderling to make comeback at DC semis in Göteborg

I do love this man. I like guys with character. Soderling, Davydenko, Berdych to some extent, etc. Guys with opinions - questionable hair maybe (because they don't give a crap about it), dry sense of humour. They don't mind offending other people (mostly the fans who are only cheering for handsome hunks who are "nice" and inoffensive).

We don't have enough of this in tennis. I miss the Wilander days.

I don't know why you brought up that guy. All I really know is that he was an ass to an umpire once. I don't condone this.

I mean I might not necessarily like these guys, but I have more respect for them in the way, they are what they are and don't try and project a manufactured image, so it's a take it or leave it attitude.

Toad has had a good 2007, though he is capable of some great mental breakdowns, but at home in Davis Cup he is hard to beat and loves a roof.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
