Default Who are you, Sodafans?

Please introduce yourself if you are SoderKing's fan

So, let me start - I am Dana, I am from Kazakhstan. I am gloryhunter - shame on me. I started following Robin after RG09. Of cource I saw him before but I was never his fan, just liked some of his matches. But he really impressed me on RG and my impression wasn't spoiled after this tournament.
I love Robin's attacking style (mea culpa - I hate "protective tennis") and love his attitude

Pleased to meet you Dana.

So I am Rose from London - my confusing flag is for my partner who is Serbian, and for my favourite player, Novak Djokovic.

I first saw Robin play in Hamburg about 4 years ago, and was impressed by his feisty attitude. I like the way he says what he thinks, and isn't afraid to be himself. I've also been fortunate to meet him (and Jenni) a few times at tournaments in Europe, and he seems like a really nice, genuine guy. Apart from Novak and Robin, I like many players including all those in my signature.

Away from tennis, I am a Social Worker looking after abused kids in London. I live with my partner, have a 13-year-old step-daughter and 5 cats I love reading, rock music, travelling, I am vegetarian, do voluntary work for animal charities, and spend far too much money going to far too many tennis tournaments

Default Re: Who are you, Sodafans?

Hi Dana and Rose,



I am Tim and I'm an Independent Middle Tier SOA Specialist and Software Engineer. My direct relatives are from Killarney, Ireland, but I travel for my livlihood for short term technical contracts. I am about as independent as a person can be, thus my love of my 2 cats, and players like Nole, Nalby, Rafa and Robin. I'm a long time Nalby fan and first started posting in Tennis Forums in 2006 in the now defunct davidnalbandian.com Forum. That forum is now gone, but it's coolest member creates a blogspot that is miles better anyway. Cue another shameless plug for Julia's great Daveed website : http://www.vamosdavid.com/

This is strange...I was a David and Rafa fan for many years because they we're the only two players that made tennis interesting by daring to challenge Mr. Federer. Without these two players, tennis might have become so boring and predictable, I would have stopped watching it. When the charasmatic and independently minded Nole arrived on the scene, he became my second favorite player next to Nalby. But while being a Nalby fan, I was first saddened by the loss of David's form after the 2007 Madrid and Paris Masters, that ultimately led to him getting the hip surgery that he has spent the past 7-8 months recovering from. I was not sure he was going to ever return to tennis, and it remains to be seen whether he will compete at the same level. This left me as a Nole and Rafa fan. At the same time, I was growing frustrated with Nole for not "being himself" and always floating under radar since the US Open Fiasco in 2008.

I noticed Robin's talent many years ago when he played Henman in the 3rd round of Wimbledon in 2003, and being a Nalby fan, I was obviously impressed with this guy's game because Robin and David have had some epic matches, including an unforgettable 5 set thriller in Davis Cup action last year that may be one of the most fascinating matches of David's career (the one where he cried after finally beating Robin). And then Robin and David met in the Stockholm Open final last year. With David out, I was surprised, but not shocked as most when I saw the Rafa match. That obviously intrigued me, but it was the matches after that one against Kolya, where he smoked him 6-1, 6-3, 6-1 and then his epic comeback in the 5 set RG Gonzo Semi-Final that cemented my fascination with his game and with his personality (towel over the head on all changeovers ).

Maybe it would be fair to say that no other player reminded me of me more than Robin Soderling (same identification thing with Nole, Rafa and Nalby), and that realization increased once I started reading about him, following and watching all his matches from RG to Bastad to the WTFs. I also have been reading about Jenni, following them on twitter. So what a journey it has been becoming a Robin fan, and I never would have dreamed it would have been this rewarding a trip to be his fan. Once Nalby comes back, I will be pulling for him as always, but I found myself cheering for Robin over any other players in the U.S. Open and beyond, and that included Nole and Rafa and it will probably include Nalby too....but I'll have to wait and see on that one as I have followed David since 2002.

Hey Everyone!
My name is Ty and i'm from Winnipeg which is a beautiful city in the country of Canada and I am one of the few long time Soderling fans!
Robin has been my favorite player since 2004 when he won his first ATP Tournament in Lyon...His big berve and punishing groundstrokes were really nice to watch and I always knew that he could be a major threat on the ATP tour and I guess i was right!
I have been through many ups and downs with robin in the past...with all the choking and injuries and not living up to Robin`s full potential was really getting me mad. That was until Robin took down Rafa in four and all the sudden there was new life...Robin as we all know would go onto the finals where he would lose to Roger...and after that his whole career changed! (Thanks to Magnus!)

Anyways, Im really glad we have our own forum now and LETS GO ROBIN!!!

Nice to meet you all

I´m Andrés from Leon (Spain), 16 years old (17 on monday ) and a huuuuge fan of tennis ,just like everybody here. I also like hockey and sky; and I´m studying at school, next year I´ll go to university If I pass everything ( hopefully )
I started following tennis when I watched the RG final between JustineHenin and Mary Pierce (Cant remember wich year it was) and that´s why I love WTA altough my favourite players are Maria Sharapova (totally IN LOVE ) Martina Hingis ( Just could watch her a little bit in 2006, and after that vids on youtube)and Alize Cornet ( I also like many others)
As for ATP, my favourite players are Stan,Roger (well, players in my sig ) and Robin of course; I discovered him in RG this year when he beat Nadal and my friends almost killed me when I said Robin deserved to win
And that´s pretty all; I do hope to enjoy in this new forum ( I just yelled "Yeah" when I entered in Sweeden and I didnt see "soderling" thread ) and have fun with you
Come on Robin !!!

"Heja Robin!" or "Kom igen Robin!" (like come on), if that's what you're asking about.

My name is Saulo Eduardo, I´m 22 almost 23, I graduate this year in law school. I live in Sao Paulo but moving back to my parents city next year. I like Robin since 2006 when I saw him in Davis Cup against Brazil, but I only started cheering more strongly for him at the beginning of this year when I started posting in his thread (and hopefully I believe I brought him luck). Söderling is top 10 material and deserves to be there for a long time.

Hi Everyone
I'm Christina from Brisbane, Australia and have a ridiculous obsession with swedes that makes absolutely no sense to most Aussies. Been a fan of Robin forever primarily due to him being Swedish, but always thought there was something special about him (even though the other swedish players used to say he wasn't very nice - it was always him just being shy though! people need to give him a chance). magnus was my first swedish fascination so now that he's coaching robin ive been really into it this year - since the first tournament of the year in BRISBANE.
im turning 24 next month and have been following tennis my whole life and just today i got my final uni results and i am graduating WOOOHOOOO

Default Re: Who are you, Sodafans?

One of the other thing that I like about Soda is that his style of play is similar to mine (keeping on its proportions). I have a top spin forehand and a flat backhand like Soda, also I hate to volley in my backhand side. I can´t say my serve is as good as his, however. I´m an agressive baseliner created on clay but playng alot in hardcourts, so last year I liked to do a paralell of his progress and mine xaxa.
