World No.14, Robin Soderling has decided to pull-out of the next month’s season opening grand slam in Australia, as he is still recovering form the injury, glandular fever, which has forced him to withdrawn from the 2011 US Open.

Swede top seed, Soderling has proclaimed that, he has been suffering the glandular fever, since last September, which has forced the former No.4 to withdraw form last half of the season. Since then, Soderling is recovering from his illness and is hoping to return to practice in January with a view to competing the following month.

Swede top seed, Soderling has tweeted that, I am very sorry for being away for so long and for not giving many updates but my recovery has been longer than expected.

I am feeling better with each day but it will still take some time before I can start practicing in full speed.

My goal is to start with practice in January and I hope for tournament comeback in February but at this stage it is hard to know when and where. I hope my body will allow me to do that.

I will try to give you more updates. I love reading your messages and appreciate your support and encouragement very much.

Soderling had a fantastic start to the season winning the Brisbane Open and showed his best performance till date by reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open. Later, the Swede won back to back titles in Rotterdam, Marseille and Basted before reaching the French Open quarter-finals where he lost to eventual winner Rafael Nadal.

World No.13 then faced a shocking defeat in the 2011 Wimbledon Open against the Australian, Bernard Tomic. However, in the very next tournament at Bastad, Soderling has beaten David Ferrer to clinch his fourth ATP World tour title in 2011. But, Soderling faced a Wrist injury, which has resulted him to miss the Montreal Masters and finally he announced to withdrawn from US Open as a result of the glandular fever from which he is still suffering.

Robin Soderling has ended-up the season winning 4-ATP world tour title with a win-loss record 38-9 in 2011.
