Robin Soderling, who has been sidelined for nearly two years due to mononucleosis, tells USA Today that he is not ready to come back to the tour, but he will eventually return.

“I don’t want to go back to the tour and not feel 100 percent fit,” said the 28-year-old, who reached the Roland Garros final twice. “If I don’t give it a try I think I will regret it when I’m getting older. It’s easier to retire and say at least I gave it a try.”
