Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

hope it wont be retirement, he deserves a final sendoff at least if he plans to call it a day soon...
But I certainly hope he recovers fully soon and will play towards the end of the year (where the courts will suit him too, especially indoors)

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

I want him to come back It's horrible what's happened to him. He was the most obvious outside the Big 4 to win a slam.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

If he doesn't come back in 2012, he will announce retirement next year to join Sampras as the second player to finish career with a title in the last tournament.

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

I hope and somewhat think he'll be back near the end of the year. More or less how Del Potro came back in 2010.

Miss him so much and tennis really isn't the same.

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

What a tragedy. If Murray wins a slam before he does then the death of tennis is at hand.

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

What happened to him that made me miss almost 1.5/2 years of Tennis?

I thought it was just a simple injury??

Anyway you can't come back after missing almost 2 years, you'll just end up another Del Po at best, James Blake at worst.

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

I hope he returns soon, he is a great guy but I guess he will never be the same guy like in 2009 and 2010.... I've had the same illness for a week now - I can't imagine how he's been living with it for a year now... Come back soon Robin

Re: Will Soderling be back in 2012?

All this for Mono?? I'm gonna guess there's something more to this because mono is no reason to retire from tournaments that are months away... I'm still hoping we'll see him return. Always liked that guy.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

As a fan of Robin, I only want him to come back. Couldn't care less if he can never be a top player again (which he probably won't). What matters is that he gets back on the courts doing what he loves and that Robin fans (and tennis fans as a whole) can enjoy his tennis again.

He'll turn 28 in the summer. I reckon if he could start his comeback by then, he'd still have a few years of tennis left in him, especially since his game isn't very reliant on movement. Really hope his career doesn't follow the exact same tragic path as Ancic's

Ever heard of Ancic?

Viral mono in its most advanced form has been killing athletes' careers for a long time. Robin won't be the first or the last to suffer from it, unfortunately.

Federer caught mono too, but fortunately for him it was 'only' bacterial mono, which is bad but doesn't sap away all your energy like viral mono. Robin has retired from tournaments because he has no energy to practice for half an hour, let alone play competitive tournaments.
