Peter Lundgren as a tennis player

Does anyone have any pics of him as a player. I really wonder what he used to look like, cause he doesn't look like a tennis player right now. Does anyone know what he was like tennis-wise and character-wise? I'm curious.

Exclamation Re: Peter Lundgren as a tennis player

Lundgren used to be very slim, good-looking and had a long Borg-style haircut!
He suddenly started climbing the rankings. Girls were eyeing him.

What a turnaround! Something happened to this guy to bring about such a transformation to what he is now!

That tends to happen to athletes after they retire, although maybe not quite as extreme as Lundgren.

Re: Peter Lundgren as a tennis player

As a player Peter was a very talented player and had some very good strokes, and had a reputation as an upset artist, but dedication was never his strong point as a player, he could have been a top 10-20 player consistently if he showed more dedication to training. He played his best tennis on the faster surfaces.

He was going to be the Swiss DC captain when Peter Carter died, but as he wasn't a Swiss citizen they didn't give it him and he helped Marc Rosset initially.

Peter is a bit of a rocker and likes the rock and metal music and his father was a very good musician.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

My guess would be complex carbohydrates

The answer is no, look at Mancini he got fat after he retired it happens to heaps of players.

Remember Yevgeny? He's retired for about a year and turned into a pig.

One of my friends brothers has down syndrome, but the rest of the family don't have down syndrome.

It could have come from the mothers side of the family.
