Söderling out of Australian Open

Söderling still hasn't recovered from his mono, and has to skip AO.
Link in swedish: http://svt.se/2.21318/1.2633836/soderling_avstar_australian_open
His agent says he's getting better, but has no clue when he can start competing again.
They've been saying the same thing for months, basically.
I fear this can be a career-ending sickness for Robin.
Sure he can make some decent comebacks.
But it looks like another Ancic-story.
What's the thing with Fredrik Rosengren and his adepts?

Ancic suffered from mononucleosis during 2007 and 2008. Made numerous decent comebacks, but had to take countless breaks from the tour due to the sickness.

Never really recovered after that.

I hope so too. Playing in the heat and high humidity on such a slow hard court would be bad for the body anyway. Hopefully, he'll be back after the AO.

That's terrible news and again another proof that people shouldn't joke about this disease as it is nothing minor.

I wish Robin the needed patience and all the best for a full recovery.

I feel for the fans of him as it is never an easy situation to see a favorite player out of the game for so long.

Ah. This is sad news. :awww:

I can’t imagine how frustrating and demoralizing it must be for Robin. One never appreciates health so much as when struck with a long illness. I hope the best for him. I’m sure he’s doing everything he can to get well.

I hope it turns out better for him than it did for Ancic.

When one gets a strong dose of mono, it’s no trifling thing. Andy was so very lucky he had only a minor tangle with it.

IT'S all about taking enough time off..Doesn't matter AO..f... that...I think he will come back in grass court season and he REALLY NEEDS TO BE CAREFULL AND NOT START too soon...like Mario... his mistake wa that he felt time is running away+not stopping in time (when they realised what it was...it was practically too late)...his glands/body was already damaged...and he started getting tired very quickly even after months and months behind the sickness...So Robin will I think have a protected ranking when he comes back??

I don't know what's his situation or did HE STOP in time...but now it depends about taking time off..HE MUST SKIP THE HOT AUSTRALIAN SUMMER AND US spring season as well as dirt season...

He is better of resting and training easy untill February anyway and start in Rotterdam Indoor. I bet he will face Roger there for the 100 th time. Anyway it will be a long way back and 2012 will be a lackluster season.

It would be very hard for Robin to play 5 seters in the scorching heat anyway.

Ofc I wanted him to play AO but all things considered it's not a good tournament to launch your comeback after mono.


Hopefully he will be ready for Rotterdam

Robin is one of my favorite players.
I mean, I'd never forgive him for beating Fed in RG2010 and Tsonga in this year's Rotterdam.
But he's a hell of a player and I love his style and personality.
Please, Robin, you can do it, come on!
You'll be fine, dude...

How would Federer not have had mono? When I got mono, it only lasted about 2 weeks tops. Sure, I was fatigued and such for several weeks afterwards, but the main issues happened in those first two weeks. Either way, certainly not as severe as Robin's case. So just because it isn't making you miss out on 6 months doesn't mean you don't/didn't have mono.

In all his defeats, it was the only time rog ever told he was sick. and that was way after the tournament.

Compare that to Nadal and Nole who offered explanations of illness and injuries everytime they lost.

You don't want to play this game as a Nadal fan, believe me.
Unlike Krajicek, Scud, Safin and others, Nadal NEVER had surgery on his knees. By your standards that means his knees were 100% all the time. Which makes Söderlings win all the more impressive, don't you agree?

It's amazing how sharing drinks, food, utensils, or even kissing can lead to such powerful symptoms and illnesses. Just remarkable how mononucleosis can be a threat to top players as much as injuries, rivals, mental frustration, and everything else on tour.

The worst part is how awesome he was playing before the mono, destroying Berdych and Ferrer the way he did were definitely signs that he still has it in him for more success in RG.

A person that probably can't spell "Epstein Barr Virus" shouldn't be allowed to post about Mononucleosis.

Let alone those who apparently have no knowledge whatsoever about the disease.
For the upteenth time - the degree to which an individual gets affected by the virus varies enormously. Tons of folks who get infected don't even notice it, plenty of others - the unlucky ones - get floored for months or even longer.
And even in mild cases it will obviously have an effect on a professional sportsman's training schedule. It obviously affected Federer's training, and it might well be that Roddick's mediocre results of the past couple of months have had something to do with his 'lighter' case of mono as well.

Ancic' case was of course a really terrible one, eventually leading up to the end of his professional career as a tennis player. I can only keep my fingers crossed for Robin that it won't end up the same for him, but the longer he needs to recover, the worse his outlooks become... get well soon, Robin! :sad:

Double standards once again. Then when it was a mild case, just neglect it, and not classify it as Mono when Mono != Mono.

Never really recovered after that.

It's imposssible to have a mono during 2 years...it's a short illness. It's chronic back problems which made Ancic retire, not mono.

Hello my friends. I am very sorry for being away for so long and for not giving many updates but my recovery has been longer than expected. I am feeling better with each day but it will still take some time before I can start practicing in full speed. My goal is to start with practice in January and I hope for tournament comeback in February but at this stage it is hard to know when and where. I hope my body will allow me to do that. I will try to give you more updates. I love reading your messages and appreciate your support and encouragement very much.

It is beyond ridiculous reading some posts here, specially those Nadaltards accusing another player of "injuritis".

Federer had splenomegaly- to a point his doctors actually advised him against playing, since he could had suffered a spleen rupture. And anyone who has a spleen laceration/ rupture can die of hypovolemic shock (bleeding out to death) if left untreated (either medically or surgically).

Most of the "it was only a flu" type of mononucleosis are not even diagnosed. The person has flu-like symptoms and it goes away without treatment. People usually get diagnosed with mononucleosis when the clinical presentation is a bit more extreme than the usual flu: when symptoms last longer, the patient has abnormalities in his/her blood count/ and so on.

You see with Soderling (and probably Roddick): he is suffering from those lingering nasty effects of mononucleosis. On a regular person that doesn't exert himself/herself as a profession it is bad. For a guy that works through putting his body to extreme conditions is even worse.

At first when I read that Fed had mono I thought "no big deal, they probably discovered it because he is an "important" patient and went out checking for every single lab tast available". When, afterwards, I read about his spleen enlargement and his doctors advising him about the danger of him keep on playing I thought "ouch, it was more serious than I previously thought".

Any doubt that Roger's immune system took a beating that year can be put asside by that skin infection he had on his face. How many times did you see Federer, after his teen years, with a skin infection like that (see pics of him from Estoril to Wimbledon)?!

To the retards everywhere: the same virus associated with mononucleosis is linked to lymphomas and leukemias. Most people are lucky to have a mild case of flu-like symptoms, but this virus is nasty.

They've been saying the same thing for months, basically.
I fear this can be a career-ending sickness for Robin.
Sure he can make some decent comebacks.
But it looks like another Ancic-story.
What's the thing with Fredrik Rosengren and his adepts?

Ancic was the best friend from tennis world of Soderling. Maybe they like french kissing each other. Just a little bit when it's boring, you know.
