9 tournaments using his former rank, their use will only Grand Slam tournaments and the Masters. On all the other tournaments he will given the wild card, in principle, to any tournament Robin will get the wild card. Haas is not a good example, because it is in my memory he only one time did not given a wild card, but he misses a lot of tournaments because of various injuries.

yeah I just grabbed a recent example of a former star not getting WCs. Question is still: Why not use protected ranking? It's not like Del Potro needed it either with the same reasoning. It's a nice thing. Why use WCs when you don't need to. I hope he applied

OMG, nobody says that Robin did not have to use a protected ranking, but it will be not enough.

not gonna be anything other interesting to discuss is there? I really want to know. Robin hasn't had an "injury" like in normal case but I know Serena for example had her blood cloth in the lung thing and was granted it. Probably more sickness than injury.

I also think as long as you applied it can take up to two years before you actually do your first tournament and you still get 9 months and 9 tournaments

matters a lot if it becomes as serious as the interview hinted. Otherwise he could be Swedens new Pim Pim and just do his occasional Stockholm Open. I would hate for Robins career to end that way

But I really don't know if Robin can be considered as equivalent to "injured" player or not.
By the way, he had not received a penalty for the Rotterdam , so ..... probably he can.

these ATP rules are so confusing

Terrible news. Robin is a terrific ball-striker and great to watch. The game needs him back badly. But hope he gets back to full health first, most important. All the best for him on and off-court. He's got an amazing attitude and i'm pulling for this guy.

nice find Seems ATP actually has 3 years to activate the protection and not 2 like it seemed to be for WTA. But what a nightmare if it takes that long. Maybe Robin has figured that he really wants to be 100% for that reason too, because once he does his first tournament the time starts ticking. Also it seems like WCs dont count as a protection entry so he can use WCs too and make the protection last even longer (if needed)

Joachim Johansson rushed with his comeback and paid for it as he got re-injured and got all kinds of problems and eventually ran out of all protection.

Soderling seems to be learning from Ancic and maybe Johansson by really taking his time and be patient despite the snail-speed recovery. He's not rushing for some appearance fee or gambling to save his ranking. This means he probably will have a looooong time of WCs and protections when he gets back so he doesn't have to feel any pressure at all like some players do after injury.

He's only 27 after all and if he can comeback sometime in the coming 12 months it's no total panic. But the sooner the better


Btw big thumbs up to all the people dropping by and giving support. Seems Soderling is pretty missed on the tour after all

Soderling is officially out of Indian Wells/Miami I take? After the interview i sort of threw in the towel for them and most of the clay season too.

Also what a shame if he ends up missing the olympics he was only 23 last time in 2008 and hadn't had his big break that came in 2009. So I think he looked forward to the 2012 games

No, but i think Robin is unlikely will play until the fall, maybe will not play all this year.

I could be wrong of course.
We'll see.

Why he should now hold a press conference? He said a lot at the last SvD interview. He is too far from the game form and just had nothing to add.
