Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

I asked Niclas this morning, he said "No, he's just injured all the time...like Thomas Enqvist. He has time off, plays a few matches and gets injured again. He's still young..."

It didn't really sound good or bad, but at least he hasn't retired, yay! Damn Wikipedia and it's lies! lol...

Ok so I just read he retired on GM. Maybe time to ask Niclas again tomorrow to see if his answer is any different.

ATP PLAYER NEWS

February 1, 2008
Joachim Johansson Forced to Retire


© Getty Images

Swede Joachim Johansson has announced his retirement from professional tennis after three years with shoulder injuries.

"I can practice for a few weeks and play an individual tournament but after that my shoulder gets overworked forcing me to rest for a longer period of time," said the 25-year-old, who has the nickname 'Pim-Pim'.

"Taking that into account it is hard for me to reach my objectives and for that reason it makes it impossible for me to continue my challenge.

"This is a decision that has developed during the last month. Now I will set myself new goals but whatever happens I will always continue to play tennis."

Johansson's shoulder problems started at the beginning of 2005 ATP season, with the first of his three surgeries performed on July 27, 2005.

His last MRI showed that there was constant inflammation in his right shoulder and that he was suffering from 'pitcher's shoulder' (rotator cuff tendonitis). Shoulder specialists in Sweden and Italy have advised Johansson that at this time no surgery can help him to overcome his problems.

The 6' 6" right-hander won three career ATP singles titles (2004-Memphis; 2005-Adelaide, Marseille) and reached a career-high No. 9 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings on February 14, 2005. He also won one ATP doubles crown.

His best Grand Slam performance came at the 2004 US Open, when he beat defending champion Andy Roddick before falling to Lleyton Hewitt in the semifinals. The following year at the Australian Open, Johansson hit an ATP co-record of 51 aces in his four-set loss to Andre Agassi in the fourth round.

Johansson's last professional match on the ATP circuit came at Stockholm in October 2007, when he defeated Carlos Berlocq in the first round but had to withdraw from his second round match due to illness.

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

OMG; I can´t believe this

When I just read the news on GM, I first thought it was a bad joke, but it wasn´t
Of course, as I wrote yesterday, I was not optimistic for his career either, but I never, never expected he would retire that young...

I just feel so sad

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

Elitsatsningen är över, men lite tennis blir det även i framtiden.

- Jag kommer att spela för min klubb Falu TK, bland annat i division 2-serien utomhus i sommar.

Kanske blir "Pim-Pim" tennistränare så småningom.

- Jag har gått en tränarutbildning i Falun och har anmält mig till förbundets tränarkurser i vår. Det kan också bli studier, eventuellt i matematik. Först ska jag läsa svenska och engelska på gymnasienivå för att få högskolebehörighet.

http://www.dagensnyheter.se/DNet/jsp...d=672&a=738831

He says that he's going to continue playing tennis in the future for his club, among others in div 2 in summer.
Also he has a trainer education/training and has considered another triner/coaching course in autumn. There may also be some studying, eventually in maths (!!) but first he's going to study swedish and english at an upper secondary school to get his high school qualification.

Interesting...

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

I was also quite surprised to hear about Pim Pims further plans...

Earlier they showed some telephone interview with Pim Pim on Swedish TV and to me he really seemed very, very sad There was something in his voice which almost made me cry

How can someone have so much bad luck??? I think this is just so unfair and I really wish Pim Pim all the best for his life after tennis And I so hope we will see him from time to time even after he has finished...

Still can´t believe it...

Hey guys. Just want to express how sad I am that Joachim is retiring. He is very young and had a lot of talent. It will be hard not to see him on tour anymore.

Wimbledon Upsets:
Safin def. Djokovic 6-4, 7-6, 6-2
Schuettler def. Blake 6-3, 6-7, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
Kudryavtseva def. Sharapova 6-2, 6-4
Tipsarevic def. Roddick 6-7, 7-5, 6-4, 7-6
Dancevic def. Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4
Zheng def. Ivanovic 6-1, 6-4
Tanasugarn def. Jankovic 6-3, 6-2
Radwanska def. Kuznetsova 6-4, 1-6, 7-5
