Robin Soderling out with mono until after Olympics
Monday, May 21, 2012
STOCKHOLM (AP) -- Two-time French Open runner-up Robin Soderling says he will miss the French Open, Wimbledon and the Olympics as he recovers from mononucleosis.
The 27-year-old Swede hasn't played a tournament since winning in Bastad, Sweden, last July. He withdrew from the U.S. Open just before the first round.
Soderling said Monday he doesn't know precisely when he'll be back. He wants to fully regain his strength because he encountered setbacks when he resumed training too soon.
Soderling upset Rafael Nadal in the fourth round in Paris in 2009, ending the Spaniard's 31-match winning streak at Roland Garros.
