my dear friends,no offense, but what news you've been waiting today?
everyone understands that Robin will not play in 2012. even if he is going to start at the beginning of 2013 (doubtfully, especially about the Australian Open), which announcement Robin can give now, 2-3 months before ? it makes no sense.
I bet, if (when) he decides to play, we will hear about it from the news that Soderling got wild card.
A few words from Nina Wennerström (yes, she is again the Robin's agent).not so optimistic as I expected.
– Det är lite bättre, han mår bättre och han har börjat slå på bollen men det är en bra bit kvar innan han är inte redo att spela ute på turneringar och vara på 100 procent.
Kan man slå fast att han kommer komma tilbaka?
– Det siktar han på till 100 procent, men kan aldrig veta någonting, så är livet. Det vore otroligt tråkigt om han inte kunde det, men där är vi inte nu.
Sounds good to me. Confirms there are no retirement plans as for now and that he is "hitting the ball" which I take as he's started practicing again. We also know that Fidde is around (hopefully helping with that practice)
Long way to go to 100% yes but when he's at least out there and with his coach the comeback feels more than just a pipe-dream. Now it feels like he's doing real progress and that we might see him take a WC soon, for example to a 250 like Brisbane to see if he measures up good enough to even give AO a shot. Still 3 months
interview with robins coach fredrik rosengren. theres some video issues in this clip but it its watch able.
for u non swedes he says he is not currently robins coch since robin aint playing. about robins health he says robin is 100% into a comback and that robin has started training and with a little bit more intensity to it. tho its like 1h 4 days a week its still a progress.
he mention that its still hard to tell when robin will be back but if theres somone on the tour that is stubborn its Robin says Fidde.
heres the latest article from swedish press (i think) its 5 days old and tells pretty much the same story as before....but it feels like tension is building up for a 2013 return. this dosent mean he will be in AO tho. it just says "a possible comeback in 2013".
So when or how he will return is still in jepordy. and as always....his agent says he feels "better and better"....hope he himself can make some kind of statement about 2013
