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!
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.

He just wrote this on facebook!

Robin Söderling
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.

Reading disabilities again?

Federer, Roddick, Ancic and Söderling all had mono = infected with the Epstein Barr Virus.
For the last time: THE EFFECTS VARY ENORMOUSLY WITHIN EACH AND EVERY INDIVIDUAL.

Clear now?

Very sorry to hear about Robin. Hopefully he makes a full recovery and doesn't suffer the same fate as Ancic.

Can always expect a “strong” reaction from FedFans when Mono is mentioned.

When someone - how convienently, a Nadaltroll - just bluntly denies it, why shouldn't his fans come up to the defence?
In case you haven't noticed, I mentioned Roddick just the same. And no, I am no fan of his.

I can't be bothered to reply to the trolls.

Anyway, poor Robin. I really hope he makes a full recovery soon. I've missed him on the tour.

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.

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 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.
