    Well done 2010, Robin.

    Thanks for the entertainment (you ARE an entertainer, aside from a pro-tennis player)!
    Your first Slam is coming next year, and I think at LEAST two by the end of 2012.

    Keep developing your game. As Federer said, ““(Soderling) always brings out something different every time he plays me…”

    Thank you Robin for 2010.

    It was really a great year, almost like 2009 but better !
    And you can imagine how happy I am that your first M1000 was in Paris :)

    so thank you for all the joy you gave to us, all the beautiful tennis you did this year, And congrats to all the team for such a good job.

    happy well-deserved hollidays !!!

  3. Chad in Japan says:

    Dina made a great point: “the team”. Best to Magnus and Nicke! Sorry.

    I can’t help it: I’ve been stuck with a lot of people I don’t like here in po-dunk, rural Japan for the last 15 years. In fact, they would’ve never been my friends in the US.

    But the thing I’ve learned is that their differences, misconceptions and, sometimes, better points of view have made me better than my old friends who always supported me back in the US.

    That said, Fabrice, Fabrice, Fabrice! Yah, so what if his record is even? He’s the ONLY guy who can make your game better…nothing better than two opposites.

    Please ask him for one day together…just one…if you have to pay for it, so what?

    Alright, Team Robin….over and out…have a good rest!

  4. nicole says:

    Congrats for the great year Robin you played well all year with all the finals and the titles you made :)
    Rip 2011 up, its your year!

  5. Ron says:

    What is that chad guy talking about? makes no sense. I won’t presume to tell you, the pro tennis player, how to do your job(unlike some people). You and your team have been doing a good job. What I like about Robin, is that he cares about player better tennis, always. We all know that there are some top ten/top twenty players who are content with being top ten/top twenty for the rest of their career, but Robin doesn ‘t, Rob wants to improve and make it all the way to the top. For this I thank you and your team. Thank you for caring about the game of tennis to make it better. Thank you for pushing your rivals farther in their own pursuit of excellence. Thank you, again.

  6. Chad in Japan says:

    @Ron: Fabrice Santoro (French tennis player–retired last year), nicknamed “The Magician”. Plays a totally different game than Robin–no power, relentless serve and volley–a master of net play. Used to confound players like Sampras & Federer. Safin himself has said, “Being told I would play Santoro was being told I was to die.”

    I’m 43 and have played competitive tennis since 10. Power only lasts for only long. Yah, Ron, I AM gonna to recommend to Robin that plays totally differet players. His game need more dimension (h’e working on it…getting better)…but he’s in 2 dimensions. A fan who just ‘rah-rahs’ Robin does him no service–just builds a false sense of support and security.

    I want to see Robin win a slam, if he doesn’t mix-up his game…he’ll always be second place.

  7. Ron says:

    I’m already aware of who Fabrice Santoro is, thanks. If you think you can give Robin better advice than Magnus, then more power to you. I’m 37 and I’ve been playing competitive tennis since I was 6, but I don’t claim to know everything about tennis. Ya know, I hope your advice helps, but it seems rather presumptuous to assume they haven’t thought of that already, Thats all I’m saying.

  8. Chad in Japan says:

    Hi Ron,

    First an apology to you and everyone else on this site. Here in Japan, the matches come in late at night (and I enjoy my beer while watching or am half asleep)–wish that there was a delete button for a few of my missives. I wrote them, I’m own them; I’m sorry.

    That said, my tennis isn’t great, ‘cos I’m totally self-taught. Through the years, a lot of better opponents told me to stop using so much power, to change this, change that and mix it up. I didn’t listen to them. I was a two-trick pony: power first serve/forehand. Now that I’m slowing down with age, I have to use a lot of shots that I was too stubborn and stupid to try–and they’re working (but it’s too late!).

    I think Magnus is great: Robin wouldn’t be #4 without him. Presumptuous on my part–perhaps. However, we tennis players are often insular, protective and full of pride–we often don’t think outside of the box. Often, the people we play or surround ourselves with will more likely agree with us–not a combo for change.

    I’m NOT gonna fight you. Afterall, you’re a Soderling fan; I am too. We both hope for the same results. I think this board is great, because people who watch Robin can support him AND offer suggestions that maybe he and his team haven’t thought of.

    Peace to you, Ron.

  9. Ron says:

    Of course, man. I’m glad you are here, and I’m the last person on earth to start a fight, but I love a good argument :)

  10. Ron,

    Best to you, sirrah! :)

    Glad you’re here as well–you’ve been on this site for a while. I argue in person too much already (I’m sure we’ll have some fun when the next season starts). “Do no harm” is my ultimate motto, tho-

    Thank goodness we’re not having this thread on the Swedish side.

    Just celebrated a belated Thanksgiving here–a la Kentucky Fried Chicken. Imbibed, but I think I figured out exactly why I’m so interested in the Soderling/Santoro thing. Tomorrow, when I’m compis mentis.

    Have a good one, mang!

  11. Dina says:

    Hi guys !

    it could be fun to see Robin with Fabrice, but jut because of the height difference !
    Anyway, Santoro stopped his career to be more with his family, so I think being a coach isn’t in his plan…

    Well, the end of the collaboration between Robin and Magnus is just a rumor for now. And I think Robin doesn’t need our advice to make the right choice ;)

  12. Chad in Japan says:

    Well said, Dina.
    Magnus is a must be–always will be, in my mind
    I was just thinking of Fabrice and Robin being practice-for-a-day partners whenever they’re near each other.

    More tomorrow.

    Goodnight!

  13. Yay, thanks for this amazing season, Robin! Can’t wait to see you in 2011 :)

    Best wishes.

  14. Chad in Japan says:

    Dina: there is a rumor of a split? Hopefully not.

    RE: my previous posts…
    I think the days of the old style (serve and volley) are fading because of the slower surfaces. It doesn’t help that the ATP depicts players as UFC?gladiators with UF with power poses in photos, smoke machines at court entrances and a huge ball speed display on both sides for everyone to judge player brawn.

    Sadly, the ATP/sponsors are pushing the power, baseline game. It seems like the old Santoro style of serve and volley sans power has become something of a joke–or considered a “weak” style of play–despite still being very, very effective.

    I believe that Federer’s main success is simply because he’s a master of combining both the new and old games–he packages it so well under his cool image that everyone thinks he has something unique. Goran made good use of serve n’ volley as well (he got away with it because of his lunatic image–LOVED him). Maybe I’m totally off mark, I dunno.

    A lot juniors will have to play the old game in order to rout the power camp–that is, until they get that muscle mass at around 23 or so. It’s going to be fun to watch.

    You all have a great holiday season and a happy new year. See you back here in 2011!

    Chad

  15. Ryan says:

    Excellent season Robin, that takes some doing reaching back-to-back World Tour Finals. I really hope you can build on your Masters series win, by winning a slam next year. Come Australia, I hope you have been training hard and ready for this title. Following you Robin for many years, I notice you really struggle in Australia with the weather being so hot. Hopefully things will be different this time around, and if you can`t win the Open, at least have a good run and add some ATP ranking points.

  16. Jonathan says:

    wow,there was a hot argument…

    thank you all guys….who just want to tell robin what is the right thing in your own opinion…

  17. Chad in Japan says:

    Just occured to me: Robin doesn’t play a lot of doubles tourneys, does he (not that he would have the time with the current, grueling schedule)? But more doubles (with the fast-paced mid-court action) might trickle down…or up…to his singles game.

    What do I know?!?

  18. Chad in Japan says:

    Maldives? Tough life! I hear it’s the only place that looks just like the magazine photos, PLUS you get to play tennis at sea-level (sadly, for the disappearing country). Alright, I gotta get my b*tt off this board and get a life. Have fun. See y’all in January.
