    Soderling will never be the same if he returns. He was a true number 5. Such a shame.

    At least he could smash a ball and hit through some pushers... I think he is de-facto retired now as hes for 2 years out of game.

    I do. I loved watching him play. I think I like his style as much as I do because I play similarly.

    I miss him. I like his game. I also like that no one intimidates him.

    Söderling didn't seem like a very nice guy, but he was a fierce competitor who was fun to watch. I miss Jenni Moström.

    Fed probably.

    Soderling is one in a long line of Federer pigeons. 16 wins to 1 loss.

    When I came back to the sport I needed to retool my forehand into a semiwestern one. Sod was the one I emulated the most... I even went with the flared handle (Im of similar height etc). Once I tried that forehand it was so much fun.

    I miss Sod... I kinda think he is done though.
