Soderling pulls out of Paris Masters

Soderling pulls out of Paris Masters

Robin Soderling withdrew from the 2011 Paris Masters because of illness. He won´t be able to defend the title he won in 2010.

Soderling is suffering from the viral infection mononucleosis and has not played since he won in Bastad last July.

The Swede’s withdrawal will jeopardise his chances of playing in the ATP Tour Finals in London next month for which three of the eight places are still up for grabs.

Soderling has been replaced in the Paris draw by Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci.
