Re: Breaking News: Pim-Pim might do a serious comeback!!

An article about Pim Pim!! (not very interesting, but there's a picture!)



Quote:
Ace king to make a meal of it
http://www.news.com.au/adelaidenow/s...018092,00.html
By ELISA BLACK

January 11, 2009 12:30am

HE holds the record for the most aces served in one match – 51 against Andre Agassi at the 2005 Australian Open – but tennis pro Joachim Johansson is looking forward to a couple of local treats as well as a win while in Adelaide.

Joachim, who arrived yesterday for the World Tennis Challenge at Memorial Drive, hopes to grab a meal at Unley Rd's La Tombola and the Hyatt's Shiki while in town.

But he won't be dining alone. His pro-golfer girlfriend Johanna Westerberg has joined him for the trip. "Australia is always tough to beat at home," Joachim, affectionately known as Pim Pim, said. "But I've been in the Davis Cup team when beating them in Adelaide before," he added with a smile.

Joachim will represent Sweden with tennis great Mats Wilander for the WTC. The tournament will see four countries – Australia, France, Sweden and the US – featuring one current and one past player from each country, battling it out for the title.

With players including Mark Philippoussis, Pat Cash, Gael Monfils, Henri Leconte, Taylor Dent and Jim Courier, Adelaide this week is a veritable tennis lover's paradise.

Former No.1 Courier (pictured) – winner of four Grand Slam singles titles – is hoping to find time to visit our wine region and grab a meal by the beach while here.

"I have very fond memories of playing tennis at the Drive, playing golf, and running and biking along the river," he said. "I've been up into the Hills and down to the beach before, and this visit I hope to get to the wine country."

But it's not all wine and relaxing for the tennis champ. "I would think France will be tough, as Gael is very strong as well as Henri, but the US will be tough as well," he said.

The WTC starts on Wednesday.

Re: Breaking News: Pim-Pim might do a serious comeback!!

Has anyone heard anything how he´s training goes? I wanna see him play now!! But i understand that he rebuilding his muscles and rebuilding all of his play in a slow act. I´m really looking forward when i´m gonna see him on an entry list to his first future tournament for the year, 3 "simply" tourney wins in the futures, then it´s time for Challenger.

Jobba på PIM PIM! Du är saknad!

Re: Breaking News: Pim-Pim might do a serious comeback!!

All I can say is WOW. WOW. WOW. I was expecting him to suck, and play bad, and embarass himself. boy was i wrong!!!!! He played FANTASTIC. As good as I have EVER seen him play. he went down a break in the first set, and Monfils served for it. Pim pim didnt care, he just broke back right away to love!! he was down a couple of break points every now and then but just pulled out aces repeatedly - it was BEAUTIFUL!!!! in the tiebreak he went up 5-2, and then he *almost* choked (how very swedish of him) when it got back to 5-5, but he pulled it out in the end. the second set was very close also, it was only at 4 all when monfils made a couple of errors, it gave JJ a chance and he took it - bashed the crap out of the return and hit it for a winner. he looked really happy to be back out there, and repeatedly looked at my swedish flag. (oh and im on tv for anyone that saw it, that idiot with the swedish flag was me! lol)

after he won 7-6 6-4 i waited down near the players area to see if i could talk to him. i gave him a card from kat which he thanked me for and i then i said 'welcome back, we're all just so happy to see you out there again' and i FINALLY got his autograph in my book next to my photo
my internet connection that i have while im away is rather crappy so i cant upload all 88 photos that i took until i get home, but heres a few to get started enjoy!!!

Re: Breaking News: Pim-Pim might do a serious comeback!!

your welcome guys ill put more up when i get back home after melbourne

unfortunately he didnt play so great tonight, losing to taylor dent in straight sets. HOWEVER i did get to have a great chat with him he thanked me for cheering and the flag and i told him how happy i was he was back and that he should come to melbourne too. got the biggest shock of my life when he responded with "actually i am coming to watch, ill be there from monday".

I then said that my friend from Brisbane, KAT, who sent the card with me, was coming and will be SO happy to see him and he said 'oh good, i can thank her in person' - HOW NICE IS PIM PIM?!!!!!!

so then a whole heap of people were asking for a photo with him and he was wondering why i didnt ask. he said "dont you want a photo with me?" i said i already had one and he said "dont you want another?" so i said yes but i didnt want to seem greedy LOL and he came straight over to me and put his arm around for a photo (the photo is terrible though, its all blurry!!!)

i then wished his gf good luck in the golf and she seemed kinda shocked that i knew who she was but she was pretty nice about it hehehe

after all of that they had to go but he was pretty happy that he had a fan i think. he said 'see you in melbourne!' and gave me his ADORABLE smile
