I don't know. For Ancic it was the same that he was super-tired but then when it let up he fought back quite fast. Mono hit him early 2007 and he played through it in Rotterdam and got a similar total breakdown like Robin. By US Open the same year he was back. By October he reached Masters QF. In Marseilles 2008 he reached the final despite also been suffering a stomach virus losing 9kgs in addition to mono. By Wimbledon he was right back at top20 but then the mono returned.

I think Soderling is closer to comeback than his interview might hint but it wouldn't be that stupid to wait until the US Open series either where he can go in without anything to defend and a ranking so low that any win at all would be a big boost.

But in my dream 2012 scenario he sees a breakthrough in the recovery and comes back for Madrid and Rome and then plays the golden trifecta of RG/Wimbledon and Olympics.

Most reasonable case might be returning for either Bĺstad in July or Stockholm Open in October depending on which one he is ready for. Then he can stay home and workout and get all kinds of special perks and training help as he got home advantage and will get everything he asks for.

Worst case he calls of the season. Then I feel career could be over because if the progress isn't enough in a full year to even attempt a comeback he probably never should, for his own health's sake

Robin Soderling: Still out of action? – Tennis Special


It has been a long time since the Swede tennis ace, Robin Soderling, was seen in action on a tennis court. The former world number four is reckoned to be one of the finest tennis players in the world at the present but his illness has sidelined him from professional tennis circuit for a fairly long time. The 27-year-old tennis icon was stung by mononucleosis last summer and is still battling with the disease to regain his health.

Soderling was on top of his tennis career last year, reaching the fourth spot in the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) World Rankings in January but his absence from the courts has thrown him to number 24 by now. The top Swede player is very well known for his resilient game play and high spirit in the contest. His absence is missed by a huge fan base but it seems like he will remain aloof from the tennis courts for quite some time. Soderling was about to make his return in February but was hindered by his persistent illness.

He wrote on his facebook page: “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.”

Fans are rather curious as if what’s taking so long for Soderling to get physically fit? A mere illness might not stop such a world class athlete to remain out of action for such long time. Well, only a few are aware of the severity of mononucleosis disease, otherwise none would have raised such question. People suffering from the so called “kissing disease” are strictly prohibited to pay any kind of sports because there are great chances that the spleen may grow larger or even burst. So tennis fans better stop getting agitated on Soderling’s lay-off and pray for him to get well soon.

It was January last year when the Swede tennis ace got off to a blistering start to the new season at Brisbane International as the world number five. He overwhelmed America’s top ranked competitor, Andy Roddick, in the final round to claim the title and the world number four spot from Andy Murray. Soderling had a decent run in the Australian Open voyage and lasted until the fourth round before suffering stunning defeat at the hands of Alexandr Dolgopolov in a classic five-setter.

The then number four, Soderling, won back-to-back championship titles in Rotterdam and Marseille to strengthen his position in the men’s rankings. He had decent runs in the later tournaments, including the Roland Garros and the Wimbledon Championships, making to the quarter-final rounds on most occasions but not getting more titles under his belt. He finally registered a thumping victory over David Ferrer in the final of an ATP World Tour 250 event in Bastad but unfortunately, it was the last time we saw the ever-smiling Swede in action.

Soderling missed out the rest of the professional circuit, sitting at home and waiting to get 100 per cent fit to play again. He needs to plan his comeback very carefully as any hastiness in coming back on courts might prove career threatening for him. The Swede hopes it will take him another month before he starts his training on tennis courts and we all hope we see him back in action pretty soon. Get well soon Robin!

Actually nothing new!

Robin is absent in the list of Barcelona (April 23-29), ​​which means he still has no plans to play yet It's very bad, and in fact there is no reason to believe that his situation is getting better...
Robin is probably now in the U.S. (reasons? i don't know), his fitness coach is busy on another project in Sweden, so it is unlikely he is close to comeback...

Maybe he's in the US to see a specialist. Whatever advice the doctors in Sweden are giving doesn't seem to help.

Robin strikes me as a very stubborn person. So I doubt he hangs up the racket without trying everything, and I mean everything.

Oh yeah and you are right about his fitness coach Ali. Seems to be involved in a little company where they hire out their expertise in Stockholm. 60 min with Ali for 975kr

But yes bad sign for sure

This is not sounding good at all, really sad day for tennis, he might retire just like Gonzo, Ljubucic which is just wow absolutely sad

I hope and pray that he will get better real soon and that God will bless him and heal him.

Wilander has started up a new project for talents in Sweden and Söderlings coach Rosengren is put in charge of it. Another sign that Söderling's comeback is far away/career over. On the otherhand Rosengren is sort of a tennis addict and would never pass on something like that.

Wilander also had a little analysis about Söderling and what he has meant to swedish tennis
http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportblade...cle14550243.ab

Basically states that Söderling held together swedish tennis and that his success the last years brought so many new kids to start playing that it secured the future of Swedish tennis. Says that Söderling meant more in that way than himself and Edberg

It's true I guess and if he retires that's always a nice legacy to have. Unless a miracle happens it will be the first time in like 40 years that Sweden won't have a single top100 player and in some sense Robin will be the last in a magical run of swedish top players.

So much bad luck for swedish tennis the last 5-6 year. I imagine that if Pim-pim had held together maybe Söderling had found a breakthrough earlier. And if both had remained healthy we might have looked at a golden generation doing well in DC and having two very stable top20 players much like Serbia. Now with some horrible twists the best swedish player is Ryderstedt down at 331.

Soderling's agent Nina takes maternity leave (happy for her and Ervin Eleskovic ).Scott Horner now manages all aspects of Robin.
I hope he will bring more luck to Robin.

A mono is not a valuable reason to retire at the age of 26. It must be something else, don't know why but mono is far, far behind him now
