Thumbs down Pim-Pim Johansson out for three months

How much bad luck can one person have?

STOCKHOLM, Sweden - Former U.S. Open semifinalist Joachim Johansson, one of the fastest servers in tennis, had shoulder surgery and is expected to be out at least three months.

"I don't think I'll play again until summer," the Swede said. "I haven't set a date because I know it seldom turns out the way you plan."

Johansson was operated on in Milan, Italy, and was told by his surgeon that "everything looks perfect."

"He believes I can play tournaments again in the summer," said Johansson, who also had shoulder surgery in July 2005 and missed seven months. "It was very nice to hear. But I must play several matches and tournaments in a row before I can say I'm back."

The 24-year-old hardcourt specialist has won three ATP titles. He upset Rafael Nadal at the Stockholm Open last October and reached the semifinals as a wild card. He also made the semis in Adelaide, Australia, in January but pulled out in the first round of the Australian Open because of blistered feet.

In 2004, Johansson upset defending champion Andy Roddick in five sets at the U.S. Open quarterfinals. Lleyton Hewitt beat him in the semifinals.

Such abysmal luck for Pim Pim. Stuff like this would really depress me if I was him.

Re: Pim-Pim Johansson out for three months

It's a real pity. One could think the he would have proneness to a knee or ankle injury but not the shoulder considering he's got a good natural serve technique. I mean he doesn't make a superpowerful shoulder rotation (like roddick) to increase the speed of the ball. Besides if it is a genetic problem he must've had it at 20 or before, but not at 23.
He's gonna miss the davis match against argentina. Crap.

Very, very sad news indeed. Some guys just have all the luck - NOT.

Get well soon, Pim Pim!
