In response to the rumors, Soderling took to twitter to set the facts straight. Though he admits it’s unlikely he’ll play this summer.
“I have NOT taken any decision to end this season. But it will probably be difficult to get back in shape this summer,” he tweeted.
Soderling has also called a Monday, May 21 press conference to discuss his playing status.
“Since I get calls from media 10 times a day. I decided to have a press conference to give them a status update,” Soderling tweeted today. “It’s easier then spending 3 hours on the phone with media everyday”.
Soderling, 27, hasn’t played a match on the ATP circuit since winning the Bastad title last July. Soderling is a two-time French Open finalist.
