Wiki

Robin Bo Carl Söderling (Swedish pronunciation: ; born 14 August 1984 in Tibro) is a professional tennis player from Sweden who is currently ranked number 6 in the ATP rankings. Söderling reached successive French Open finals in 2009 and 2010. In both tournaments, he defeated the defending champion and number 1 seed en route to the final — Rafael Nadal in 2009 (becoming the first and, to date, only player to defeat Nadal at the French Open), and Roger Federer in 2010 (ending Federer's record streak of 23 consecutive Grand Slam semifinals). He has also won one Masters 1000 event, the 2010 Paris Masters.

Söderling speaks English, Swedish and a bit of German. His father Bo is a lawyer and mother Britt-Inger, a housewife. Söderling's sister, Sandra, is a teacher. He is engaged to Jenni Moström.

Söderling began playing tennis at the age of five. He made his first steps in international tennis in November 1998 in Luxembourg when at the age of 14 he played his first official junior tournament, losing the opening match to Fred Hemmes, Jr. In his first full year in the junior tour (2000), he achieved four tournament victories and in 2001 attained three more titles in the juniors including the Orange Bowl. In the same year Söderling achieved fourth place in the year-end ranking and played in his first ATP tournament in Stockholm, winning his first match 6–3 6–3 against Ramón Delgado.
