Is Soderking really going to retire?
Nothing is confirmed yet. But his coach did work as commentator in the DC tie between Sweden and Belgium and said "Sweden will have to work for years to get back to the highest division again" and dunno if he'd say that if Robin was on his way back in the close future. Soderling alone could take Sweden to the world group and hold them there like he did for years just by winning his 2 singles.
BUT IF he retires (knock on wood) he really goes out on top winning a tournament dropping no set and just 13 games. Including beating two top10 players dropping just 5 games in the SF and F (Berdy, Ferrer)
