From Jonas' website:
It's as if he can't stop himself doing own variations on " The Sting" and making prank calls and pretending to be somebody else. Having a lark is just way too tempting. His favourite "sting" was in 1998 when the national team was preparing for the Davis Cup final against Italy in Monte Carlo. Together with Nicklas Kulti Jonas fooled national captains Calle Hageskog and Anders Jarryd into believing that Prince Albert of Monaco had invited them all to dinner at the palace. Hageskog and Jarryd got dressed up to the nines.
The whole charade held all the way up to the palace guards, who were not really impressed when doubles pairing Hageskog-Jarryd stated their business. Jonas and Nicklas Kulti then had to come clean and the whole team moved on to a restaurant in the vicinity instead and ate a good meal. A great start to a great evening!
To crown it all off, Calle Hageskog earlier during the day had, with barely concealed pride, mentioned the Prince's invite in an interview with Radio Kronoberg. This in turn reached the ears of the TT(National News Service) team and in no time at all the news was all over the country….
