Re: Joachim Johansson picture thread

Joachim said after Memphis about his father: “He was a big server. A lot of people said he had a bigger serve than me, but I don’t know if that’s true. People in Sweden say that, but maybe over the last year they’ve changed their minds. Hopefully I can come back to Sweden and show them. He was my coach throughout my whole life, and has helped me a lot."

He was sort of laughing when he said "maybe over the last year they've changed their minds."

"Johansson inherited some of his ability: His father, Leif, was Bjorn Borg's teammate on Sweden's 1974 Davis Cup team. And little Joachim — surely, he was little at one time — got to practice with Borg as a teen."

Re: Joachim Johansson picture thread

Is it just me or does Joachim seem to be a lot more vocal on court this year? I mean, he questioned calls like three times during the match and kept muttering whenever he got pissed off at the umpire. He also seems to be trying to copy Hewitt with the whole "Come oooooooooooooon!" thing.
What the hell is going on with Pim???? I mean, I guess that I don't mind him doing those things as long as he doesn't allow it to interfere in his concentration and mental toughness because those are his two biggest assets.

Re: Joachim Johansson picture thread

He's said come ON quite a bit as long as I've seen him play which isn't much. But he is rather quiet on the court in general. I don't know a single tennis player who sometimes doesn't question calls or mutter after an umpire pisses them off. I even saw Stephan Edberg do this on ocassion.

I didn't see him play in Adelaide. Did you? I guess Kristen will be able to tell us if she thought he was somehow excessively vocal.

I'm sure he's picked up the Come On cry from Lleyton. He practices a lot with Lleyton and presumably likes Lleyton quite a bit. I like Lleyton too, so I don't hold that against Pim Pim at all.

Re: Joachim Johansson picture thread

I saw only part of his doubles match with Woodbridge. Didn't want to watch his R1 against Kimmich because it would have bored me to tears plus Jurgen and Jarkko were on the outside court...

I'll be watching him in his next match though. Should be a good one! (In the woodie match, he didn't seem vocal at all. I think that even if he has started talking more in matches,m it's just normal. I guess that 'c'mon!' is just a bad habit he's picked up by lleyton, and it will annoy me whenever I hear him say it pimpim...stick to kom igen! )

Re: Joachim Johansson picture thread

Oh no, don't get me wrong star, I don't hold anything against Pim either. I actually think that is the THE MAN, always so nice and polite to all of those around him.
And Bjorkman_Girl, I totally agree with you, kom igen is sooooo much cooler than come on!!! I mean, Pim Pim should strive to have his own trademark, and I feel like it would be the coolest thing if "kom igen" were it

Maybe Kom igen doesn't sound that "cool" to a Swede. Maybe Come On sounds more exotic, foreign, and "cool." Sort of the way Allez, Vamos, and Kom igen do to us.

He uses same kind of racquet with Lleyton, I guess he even picked up his hairstyle too

I don't know if he's more vocal on court this year. Hopefully he is not. I love the quiet pimpim ...what a gentleman he was last year!

Re: Joachim Johansson picture thread

its pretty obvious if pim pim gets lleyton emotions or reaction on the court i seen them practicing a lot...
