Ok, I'm going to have to admit that this is the most adorable photo I've seen of Henrik and Therese. He is looking at her so lovingly. And she's buttoned up tight in a thick jacket and still has that overgrown purse. It's not that cold out!
Henrik was at the US Open to cheer on fellow countryman Soderling.
Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who helped Sweden to an Olympic gold medal in 2006, is a supporter of Soderling’s. They have never met but have spoken on the telephone, and Lundqvist said he hoped to attend Wednesday’s match. Lundqvist said he had watched the telecasts of some of Soderling’s big matches this year and had been struck by his mental toughness.
“Being a goalie, I know how large the mental part is,” Lundqvist said by telephone. “It’s so important, and you can see a difference now. He’s calmer and he looks mentally stronger.”
When told that Soderling has a reputation for being aloof around the other players, Lundqvist laughed and suggested the Scandinavian reserve did not translate well, especially in America.
LOL at Therese
