Tennis: Hanging out with Hewitt
By DOUG ROBERTSON
15december04

RISING Swede Joachim Johansson is banking on a priceless local edge to get the upper hand at the Next Generation Australian Harcourt Championships in Adelaide ... and it's coming from the man he has to beat to win it.

Johansson – the huge-serving 198cm, 89kg boyfriend of Jaslyn Hewitt – is hoping to hone his skills with world No. 3 Lleyton Hewitt at Memorial Drive in the weeks before the January 3-9 tournament.

Presently training as a guest of Tennis Australia among a host of Aussie youngsters at the Australian Open camp at Melbourne Park, Johansson will stay at the at Hewitts' West Lakes home from Sunday to prepare for the Hardcourt Championships.

And just like last year he'll take advantage of any chance to hit with his girlfriend's super-talented brother as the tournament top seeds prepare for the much anticipated season-opening tournament. "We'll see how it works out but that's (training with Lleyton) a possibility," said Johansson, who will play doubles with Todd Woodbridge in Adelaide. "Training with Lleyton is so good because he is a complete player. He gets all the balls back so I've got to play extra balls on every point.

"It's better for me than training indoors in Stockholm. I feel at home in Adelaide and it gives me a more perfect preparation."

Johansson, part of Sweden's Davis Cup team that embarrassed Australia at The Drive in February, stopped briefly in Adelaide before joining the Australian Open camp and invaluable practice on the same Rebound Ace courts used at the Open, which he predicted would be faster than last year.

"It helps me a lot when you see how much they all want to get better and train hard. It makes you want to do better yourself," he said. "I've been training three hours of tennis and three hours running or in the gym every day. It's been really good for me."

Johansson improved 101 places to world No. 12 after a sensational year which included his first ATP title at Memphis in February.

He lost to Hewitt in the US Open semi-finals after beating powerful American Andy Roddick and racked up seven quarter-final appearances in a stellar season.

Second only to Roddick (1017) as the biggest server on the tour with 869 aces, Johansson won 92 per cent of his service games this year and continues to fill his considerable potential.

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

ATTENTION ALL AUSTRALIANS - Joachim will be on television Sunday, Dec. 19th. 1pm:

SLAM! talks to rising Aussie stars Chris Guccione and Olivia Lukascewicz on how important the Australian Open Training Camp is to their preparation, and watches the likes of Mark Philippoussis, Alicia Molik, Todd Woodbridge and Nicole Pratt.

The boys get up-close and personal with tennis couple Jaslyn Hewitt and Joachim Johansson.

I'll post the transcript of what is said, when I'm back from my overnight trip out west (Unless someone does it sooner!)

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

lol you guys... if he wasn't dating an Australian, I don't think his chances of being on the show would have been nearly as good. The people on slam have only really interviewed aussies, and a couple of the very top (and retired) players so far. I think the interview with Woodbridge was as close as I would ever get to seeing Jonas on tv!


Sounds good Ashie. I won't be back in Sydney until Monday night, and I'm sure the pimsters will be hassling us aussies for the transcript by then! (We don't mind though! lol)

Thanks for telling us

Ive been home the past few sundays but I keep forgetting about this show. I think ive only seen it once

I don't want to be anything other than what I've been trying to be lately
All I have to do is think about me and I have peace of mind
I'm tired of looking 'round rooms wondering what I gotta do
Or who I'm supposed to be
I don't want to be anything other than me
I don't wanna be ~ Gavin DeGraw

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

^^ Just saw the Slam interview with PimPim & Jaslyn!!

(pimpim has the long hair......... =.=) but the interview was pretty brief, nothing really new. He said that he arrived in Melbourne on 3rd Dec, to hit with a few ppl who are there at the training camp while Jaslyn tried to play for a wildcard....

They also mentioned the US Open semi..... I think we've all heard about how they though about that!

not much else is there? oh well... at least it was good to see him on TV
