J.Johansson def. Vliegen 6:7 7:6 7:6

Gosh, now that's what they call a tough meeting! Guys've fired 48 aces, JJ saved 3 MPs IN A ROW (!!), then Vliegen does the same in a TB plus another MP a bit later - finally, Johansson uses the force and takes the crucial minibreak . Damn, Nathii will make hell of a note in her blog
Anyway, I guess we may say good old Pim Pim is back (I guess so...)

Heja Sverige! Heja PimPim!

Saving those three match points at 0-40 in the third set and then blowing 6-3 to 6-6 in the TB only to turn the tables and win it.

I just know he was going for the sweet knockout winner on those MPs and hit them long.

Congrats to both for one hell of a match. The match of the tournament, easily.

The roof is shaking!

Pim-Pim beat Vliegen 6:7, 7:6, 7:6

Joachim Johansson beat Christoph Vliegen in 1/4 final of Stockholm, it was 6:7(5), 7:6(5), and 7:6(7). Johansson is now playing in his first semifinal on ATP tour since winning the title in Marseille last year. Bravo Pim-Pim.

Re: J.Johansson def. Vliegen 6:7 7:6 7:6

Unbelievable and great win of Pim Pim

He was so mentally strong in the end and even hit aces with his 2nd serve
And he was so happy afterwards

All the best for his match against Nieminen tomorrow

Tommy Robredo David Ferrer Pere Riba Fernando Verdasco

Pico Monaco ~ Edu Schwank ~ Stan Wawrinka ~ Dani Gimeno ~ David Marrero ~ Marc Lopez ~ Marco Chiudinelli ~ Marcel Granollers

I miss you on tour, Nors, Bjösse, Simon & Pim Pim

Re: J.Johansson def. Vliegen 6:7 7:6 7:6

Vliegen had 6-5 and 0-40 in the third set. At 15-40 Pim-Pim fired a second serve at 215 km/h!!! Ace of course.

Awesome!!
