* Won back-to-back titles twice! - indoor in 1997 (Copenhagen - St. Petersburg), and on grass 2001 (Halle - Nottingham). He didn't win a tournament on clay but helped Sweden to win World Team Cup on clay in 2008 (won 2 matches in singles).
* ToJo didn't play a single match in 2003 due to left knee injury; in 2004 out of nowhere back to Top 30; that year as a first "lucky loser" reached Masters Series semifinal in Toronto
* At the Australian Open 2005, won first three matches in five-sets, it has happened only 4 times in this decade (the other cases: Mantilla - AO '03; Hrbaty - AO '06, Monfils - RG '06).
* ToJo is the only player who won 5 consecutive tie-break sets! It happened at the Hopman Cup 2006: Djokovic 7-6(4) 7-6(3); Schukin 7-6(7) 7-6(4); Dent 7-6(5) 2-6 6-3
The most interesting matches in Johansson's career in my subjective view:
Australian Open 1996, 2R: B.Becker 6-4 6-3 2-6 1-6 4-6
- ToJo playing in just second Grand Slam event was close to upset Becker who later won that tournament. The Swede after winning first two sets had a couple break points at the beginning of the third (5 bp's at 2:2 if I remember correctly), but Becker saved them, and the match turned around in his favor. It was the most difficult match for the German in that tournament.
US Open 1998, QF: M.Philippoussis 6-4 3-6 7-6(3) 3-6 6-7(10)
- ToJo led *4:2 in the fifth set; Scud saved three match points in the final set tie-break (5:6*, 6:7, 8:9) - the second longest final tie-break set in US Open history so far. The match lasted 3 hours 26 minutes, players served 50 aces (Scud 29). ToJo said about the tie-break: "It the worst thing which could happen. I'd prefer to lose this match 2-6 2-6 2-6". Earlier that year in Monte Carlo, Thomas wasted also 3 match points in the tie-break against Mark Woodforde... 7-5 6-7(10) 3-6.
Davis Cup 1998 (SF, Stockholm): C.Moya 7-5 7-6(4) 7-6(6)
- It was ToJo's first match after bitter defeat at the US Open, and his debut in Davis Cup. Moya led 3:0 in the tie-break of the third set. Sweden led 2-0 after this rubber, overcame Spain 4-1 two days later, and advanced to the winning final against Italy.
Stockholm 2000, QF: J.Bjorkman 6-7(6) 7-6(7) 7-5
- The most amazing win in ToJo's career; Bjorkman was serving for the match at 5:4 in the 2nd set, then had 5 consecutive match points (6:1 in the TB), had also 4:1* (40-15) in the 3rd set!!! Johansson won the tournament beating in the final Kafelnikov in straight sets.
Australian Open 2002, F: M.Safin 3-6 6-4 6-4 7-6(4)
- It was 25th Grand Slam tournament for ToJo, more tournaments to win first major needed only Muster, Gomez (27), Korda (34) and Ivanisevic (48). ToJo joined to three great compatriots (Borg, Wilander & Edberg) as 4th Grand Slam champion from Sweden. The final lasted 2 hours 53 minutes, Safin had saved 3 match points in the tie-break before made a lob-error on 4th mp.
World Team Cup 2002 (rr, Dusseldorf): P.Sampras 6-2 6-7(3) 7-6(5)
- Sampras playing his final season, had match point on serve in two games - at 5:4 and 6:5 in the third!
Wimbledon 2002, 1R: F.Saretta 7-6(2) 4-6 6-7(4) 6-3 10-12
- ToJo was serving to win the match at 7:6 in the fifth, had triple mini-match point at 10:10... won one point more than his opponent (205-204).
Stockholm 2004, F: A.Agassi 3-6 6-3 7-6(4)
- Twice was one game away from defeat, but served in both cases. Defeated Agassi first time in 7 meetings; was close to win their first encounter 6 years earlier - led 4:0 in the third set in Ostrava but lost 7-6 4-6 4-6... 1-6 against Agassi is ToJo's second worst H2H, the worst one against Federer - 0-7 but had mp in Miami 2001 - their second encounter.
Stockholm 2007, SF: J.Blake 3-6 6-1 7-6(3)
- For the second time in career saved 5 match points in Stockholm. In the third set was *4:5 when saved first mp, at 5:6 saved triple match point, and another adv.mp, broke Blake's streak of 13 consecutive wins in Stockholm.
The Olympics (Beijing) 2008, SF: T.Johansson/S.Aspelin def. A.Clement/M.Llodra 7-6(6) 4-6 19-17
- Poorly experienced in doubles ToJo, reached Olympic final after epic match against the Frenchmen. The match lasted 4 hours 46 minutes (third set 2:55) what's the Olympic record in terms of time and games (59)! Swedish pair saved triple setpoint in the tie-break; in the third set lost service game at 3:3 but broke back immediately - the same story at 15:15.
Davis Cup 2009 (1R, Malmo): H.Levy 6-7(3) 6-4 7-5 4-6 8-6
- Johansson's last win in career, and simultaneously the longest one - 3 hours 58 minutes. ToJo was *5:6 (15-30) down in the fifth set. Sweden lost two days later to Israel 2-3 (ToJo lost 4th rubber in five sets to Dudi Sela).
