Bad news from eurosport (see http://www.eurosport.se/tennis/soder...12/story.shtml ) as it sounds, even though the text is not very clear and maybe even somewhat confusing. It says "the mono is better" but also "the mono is still there" and "he cannot practice 100%". Also it is stated that no date for a comeback can be given.

I don't think Robin will ever get back to the level that he had and that you need to be at for top 8.

I don't mean to be a pessimist but i don't care to see Robin hovering around top 30 in the future. Think GS and best of 5 sets

Its really very sad to see one of the best in the game be sidetracked like this. Its even worse then what Delpo went through. And Robin has had a wristproblem aswell in the past.

Fuck it.

I don't know. Coming back at all is the major concern. Even Ancic had attempted his comeback after 6 months.

"Mono is feeling better". He's said that for months now. It seemed that he was really close to comeback already in October. He practiced good and look fairly strong. Barely made any progress at all from then it seems. And as we all know a virus is with him for the rest of his life. If he hasn't improved in all this time since October I fear that more months might not help either.

Hope still lives until he goes out and cancels the season/retires. Article mentions that he was supposed to play Rotterdam and canceled that and some other old news too so maybe more like "we have to write something about Soderling" than actual news. Also mentions he has indeed been practicing tennis in Sweden and that's a good sign. But he practiced in October too so...

To be honest, in October, Robin looked pretty bad as for the professional athlete, we just missed him and were very glad to see him again.He practiced not so much and not so hard,and after a more heavy 2-hour workout with Bjorkman he was done for months.But in January, he looked really MUCH MORE better and healthier.So progress is still there, though not the same as we would like.

It's unfortunate that things are going so slowly, but I still hope to see him on the court again, even if we have to wait another few months.If he can't play now, he can't.But he is still alive and he tries to come back.

Ancic could have waited 5 years and there would be no difference. Chronic mono doesn't go away

It's not just about his physcical status. Just like with Ancic when a player gets so much time away they start to look into other things. Ancic had his law degree and started to get other commitments besides tennis.

Robin pre-mono was crazy and lived and breathed tennis. Trained like a madman. I just hope all this time away hasn't effected his drive for tennis perfection. He actually got better and better for every year before this

Nevertheless Fidde, referring to the experience of Ancic says that you can not rush to go to court and have to take as much time as is necessary for full recovery.

I personally had the virus some years ago, after which nearly a year had problems with the health and was weak. And this despite the fact that I'm not an athlete and have no serious physical activity.Of course I'm not comparing myself with Robin, but sometimes you really need many months to feel healthy again.

Yes, of course, you're right, but right now the physical status is the most important and the main problem of Robin.

Hello friends and fan.
I know it has been a while since my last post but I have been focusing on my recovery. I was hoping to be ready for tournaments in February but unfortunately I am not there yet. The good news is that the symptoms of the mono like sore throat and fever are gone, but for some reason my body still cannot handle intense training, I get very tired when I do something physical. I am working with my medical team to understand why and what the next step is. My full focus of each day is to get healthy and strong. Hopefully it won't be much longer but I cannot compete until I am 100% fit.
Thank you very much for your support and your encouragement. It gives me much needed energy and motivation.

/Robin

he sounds motivated and got full focus on returning ASAP and thats good news.

Fidde has been the TV commentator for Swedens DC meeting during the weekend. He sounds happy and full of energy but hasn't talked much about Soderlings situation.

On Monday Robins 500p from Rotterdam comes off and the week after the 250p from Marseilles so he will be around 25-30 in the rankings. He's probably gonna find himself unseeded when he returns but that's future problems
