May I join you? I know it's a bit late, but Robin played so impressively today and I have to say he's very cute, too.

Robin is a doll!
And he's funny.

I was over the moon when Robin won! I had thought that he had a very good chance against Schuettler, and he did it!!

Tennis: Jätteskräll av Söderling

Vilken svensk tennis-knall!
Svensken Robin Söderling - oseedad - slog i morse ut fjolårsfinalisten Rainer Schuettler, Tyskland.
Det är största sensationen hittills i Australian Open, årets första Grand slam-turnering.

Underläge 0-2 i set, på andra sidan nätet Australian Open-finalisten Rainer Schüttler. På himmelen en brännande sol och 30 grader varmt.
Det som såg ut som en omöjlighet, blev i högsta grad verklighet för Robin Söderling.
Två timmar senare hade han vänt underläge till seger och ordnat en plats i andra omgången av Australian Open.
- Det är här ju den högst rankade spelaren jag slagit, och dessutom att komma tillbaka från 0-2-underläge och vinna. Härligt, säger Söderling till TT.
Det var också den klart största skrällen när Australian Open inleddes.
Förra året presenterade sig Söderling i Sverige och på ATP-touren, nu är också Rainer Schüttler plågsamt medveten om vem 19-åringen från Tibro är.
Setsifforna blev till slut, 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 och just vändningen är kanske det mest imponerande med Söderlings seger.
För Schüttler, förra året finalist i Melbourne, och för närvara nde rankad sexa i världen, är framförallt känd för sin fysiska styrka.
På ATP-touren anses han vara motsvarigheten till Duracell-kaninen, någon som bara fortsätter och springer och springer utan tecken på trötthet.
Få var också de spelare gjorde fler matcher (71 stycken) under 2003 än Schüttler.

Första femsetaren
Söderling i sin tur hade aldrig under sin karriär spelat en femsetare.
- När jag såg lottningen så visste jag så klart att det skulle bli tufft. Men det var han som hade pressen på sig och allt att förlora.
Det märktes också, Söderling kunde gå upp till ledning, 3-0, i första set, innan Schüttler kom igång.
Det gjorde dock desto mer.
Och i över 30 graders värme på Rod Laver-Arenan höll Söderling på att försvinna bort, ända tills vändningen kom.
- I tredje set servade jag riktigt bra och fick hål på honom. När femte set började kändes det förvånansvärt bra.

Tappade humöret
Samtidigt hade tysken börjat tappa humöret och vid ställningen 5-3, hade svensken matchboll i Schüttlers serve.
Den lyckades han rädda, men inte matchbollen i Söderlings egen serve.
- Det gick inte så bra i de första tävlingarna i år utan det har mera varit kämpainsatser. Förklaringarna är väl att det tagit tid att ställa om från inomhus till utomhus. När jag kom hit till Melbourne visste jag inte riktigt var jag stod.
Det vet han nu.
I nästa omgång väntar Nicolas Escude. Fransmannen som fick större delen av 2003 förstörd på grund av en höftskada, har nu gjort comeback och efter att vunnit turneringen i Doha är han obesegrad för året.

Formbesked av Enqvist
I skuggan av Söderlings framgång stod även Thomas Enqvist för ett rejält formbesked när han slog ut Vincent Spadea, seedad 29:a i turneringen, med setsiffrorna 4-6, 6-4, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6). Enqvist som hade en mycket tung tennissäsong förra året, hade inför Australian Open åkt ut i första omgången i såväl Doha som Adelaide.
I nästa omgång får Enqvist möta lovande slovaken Karol Beck.

Tisdagen blir den stora svenskdagen sett till antalet matcher. Trion Jonas Björkman, Joachim ''Pim-Pim'' Johansson och Thomas Johansson går då in i tävlingen, där mötet mellan Thomas Johansson och Mark Philipoussis, Australien, är en av första omgångens stormatcher.
Dessutom spelar Åsa Svensson och Sofia Arvidsson, som gör debut i Grand Slam-sammanhang när hon möter världssjuan Anastasia Myskina, Ryssland.

I don't understand anything of Swedish, except from Hej= Hi, and Ole Lauridsen= I love you (I picked them from Altavista ) but thanx for those pics, Star.

It's good to see finally some promising Swedish....Pim Pim don't stay at the back! I adore all the Swedish players, then I'd love to see Robin to keep going at the AO.

Why they have to take Robin away? After Coria lost, I only have Roddick to go for now.

I hate to be superficial, and sometimes I am... but Robin is much better looking in person, dont you think? I told him I'd been waiting a year to see him, a nd even though it was the Escude match I saw, I was over the moon with his performance (no i didnt use the term 'over the moon' )

Still have a few photos to develop from melbourne. Need to buy a battery before i can upload my digital pics ^_^
