Well let's start with the MS prediction it took him 8-9 years to win his one and only in 2010, I thought you said realistic.. not saying he won't.. but realistic ? mono can have a debiltating effect for a top athlete for years and I do class Robin as such, good to watch too.

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

I expect a few titles, a long run in one of the Grand SLams (depends on whenever he starts feeling better and gets back to the top of his game), a MS title and a strong top 10 ranking, maybe #5 or 6 at best

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

I just hope he gets fully-fit again. That's what matters most for me.

Federer |Söderling |most of the Germans

I also like: Wawrinka | Tsonga | Dimitrov | Isner | Gulbis |

Warm regards: 6-3 6-0 / 6-3 6-4

He'll probably fall outside the top 12.

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

What expectations?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

a fluke win here or there and maybe a small tournament at the end of the season that no one gives a crap about.

"Hopes" in my case, not expectations.

I just want the Sod King to be well again. I missed him this year.

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

3rd or 4th round appearance at a slam should be enough expectations for Sodermug

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

Soderling is a good player. The only player to have defeated Nadal on Roland Garros in the past few years. Hope he is back to full fitness and form ASAP

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

Mono is a freaking thing. Kinda tough to expect in what form he will come back. Hope for decent run at grandslams at least.

Roger Federer - Martin Klizan - Lukas Lacko - Milos Raonic - Fernando Verdasco

Dustin Brown - Nick Kyrgios - Norbert Gombos - Stanislas Wawrinka - Dominic Thiem

+1.
I've read in several Dutch sources that he'll be playing Rotterdam again. I sure hope to see him over there.

Nadal had personal issues with his parents splitting up, and was clearly physically with problems ( which he pulled out of wimbledon therafter).. When Nadal was healthy, the Sodermug run ended at both the French and Wimbledon.
