He hasn't played since Bastad, mono is far behind him now, believe me or maybe it's another illness which bothers him ?? I can swear than my body is not stronger than Robin's one so mono should be nothing serious for him. It's really strange that he vanished in the air after Bastad, hope he has no personnal problems
You like a little kid, a lot of injuries and illnesses can not interfere into, the ordinary man's life going to work and so on. Don't compare your load, and the great work sportsman, tennis is not something you see in the picture on the TV, tennis is a lot of what the viewer does not see this everyday training, work in the gym, running, and many other hard work, they are for week doing so much physical work, that many of you in your life so many don't.

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

I expect him to get routined again at Roland Garros by Nadal, to further prove what a fluke 2009 was. Think he'll start slow next year, and gain some speed when the indoor tournaments come around again, maybe win Bercy again. Will he qualify for the WTF? Will be close, think he'll sneak in at 6-8

AO: R2
FO: R3

Re: Your Expectations for Robin Söderling in 2012?

He was, is and will continue being a talentless clown with no discerning tennis quality whatsoever other than mindlesss ballbashing. He will make mankind a service though by releasing more Soda masks for his arselickers to hang on bedroom walls and hopelessly wank after every defeat.

In other words: crap.

He backed it up alright by getting straight setted by the king the following two years.

His final appearances might have not been a fluke, he's a good RG player, but his win over rafa most certainly was. He won because of Rafa's injury, the two following losses against Nadal clearly showed that.

Yeah I know Rafa was a wreck. He was lucky to get a bye to that round because he could barely move. Rafito would never have straightseted his way there. During the match also he barely ran down a single ball. He got onto the court in a wheelchair designed for a lefty that uncle Toni built in his garage the night before.

But not sure we can count Rafas wins in 2010/2011 either. Soderling had a blister in his right hand in both those matches. Without that he would have won. It's gonna show in 2012. But now he's had mono too. So every defeat in his career from this point will be because of the mono
