This week, Roger also announced that he will skip Switzerland’s Davis Cup first round in Spain in March.

I just knew the Swede, Soderling would do it. Glad to see he has started off 2010 so well. But I piety poor Nadal with his knees. Hate to see a good player go down with injuries.

Good to see you back..
It was a good warm up, never mind that you lost.
You played it like an exho, trying new things but Soderling played it like it was a serious match but still it goes to 3 sets.

Take care,
