Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

There was an article in Sw newspaper SvD today about Pim-pim and his budding ... uhmmm modeling career. Some dude said he had at least as big a potential as Maria Sharapova. Yes, that's what he said I'm not kidding. There were some pics of him as a model too. Unfortunately the article is still only available in the paper edition yet. Perhaps they will publish it on the web later. www.svd.se then click sport.

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

OMG; the pic is so great, thanks Pina for posting it and Skeiji for finding it

It´s quite funny, because in the text it says that Pim Pim has modelled one time earlier, but only half. That time (Pim Pim only said that it was some years ago) Pim Pim and Magnus Norman were modelling in costumes, but you could only see the half of Pim Pim. So he was happy that it was the whole Pim Pim this time

Could anyone possibly translate the interview???? Would be greatly appreciated

Or who I'm supposed to be

Re: > Pim Pim News and Articles <

Don't know if this was posted alread but



Giant server Johansson eyes top 10

STOCKHOLM, Jan 17 (Reuters) - He grew up in the same town as Bjorn Borg but that is about as far as the comparison goes for Joachim Johansson, Sweden's big hope at the Australian Open.
Raised in Sodertalje just south of Stockholm like the 11-times Grand Slam champion, the 22-year-old Johansson is not known for the kind of patient baseline play that saw Borg rule the tennis world in his day.

Johansson, ranked 11th in the world, has much more in common with American Andy Roddick, relying heavily on a devastating serve and a thunderous forehand that he used to hit wide far too often. ADVERTISEMENT



While world number two Roddick, who is the same age as Johansson, erupted on the tour at the tender age of 18, success came at a slower pace for the Swede.

Last year Johansson entered the top 100 for the first time and until 2004 he saw little action beyond challenger tournaments.

On home ground he was regularly awarded wild cards at the Stockholm Open but the 1.98-metre tall Johansson won few matches, impatiently squandering far too many points in the early rounds.


CRUCIAL ROLE

Then came 2004, and that was some year.

In February he played a crucial role in Sweden's Davis Cup quarter-final win over Australia, beating Mark Philippoussis in the singles and winning the doubles alongside Jonas Bjorkman.

Later that month he won his maiden title in Memphis without dropping a service game during the entire tournament.

He established himself as a future prospect when he overcame Roddick in an epic five-set battle in the quarter-finals at the U.S. Open. He then lost to Australian Lleyton Hewitt in the semi-finals.

He ended the year 12th in the world, having hit a total of 869 aces. Only Roddick surpassed him in that department.

This year Johansson has made an impressive start by grabbing his second career title in Adelaide, beating American Taylor Dent in the final.

"I've heard everyone saying it's tougher to back (a successful year) up," Johansson said after the Adelaide final.

"You've probably got more eyes on you, people looking at how you're going to play, but I think that if you keep playing the way you should, you have a good chance to back it up or maybe (do) even better."


INJURY FREE

With success has come respect from big names on the tour.

"Joachim is the kind of player who can make you sleepless the night before the match," Andre Agassi said of the Swede. "He doesn't just have an enormous serve and forehand but a big game in him."

Last week Johansson had to pull out of the Sydney International tournament because of a hamstring injury, but he was declared fit to play in Melbourne.

Seeded 11th in Melbourne, he was taking on Dutchman Sjeng Schalken in Monday's first round.

Provided he remains injury free, he has a chance to break into the top 10 during the tournament, but that might require him to defeat Agassi in the fourth round and he would then be likely to face world number one Roger Federer.

Johansson is still young and improving and it would be a surprise if he did not make it into the top 10 at some stage this year.

For a long while the boyfriend of Hewitt's sister Jaslyn, Johansson has benefited from training regularly with the Australian former world number one, who has taught him a thing or two about not wasting balls.

Johansson believes his biggest weapon can still get better. After beating Dent in the Adelaide final, he said: "I have to improve my serve if I'm going to go all the way in Melbourne."

Here´s the translation from the "model" interview:


The new coverboy of tennis

Pim Pim is already the coverboy of Swedish tennis. Soon he will be this in the whole world, with help of the photos below.
“He has everything which is needed”, Chris Forburg at IMG Models in New York says to SVD.
Forburgs words have nothing to do with the Australian Open starting on Monday or with tennis in general. Forburg is the boss of a model agency and he has to say who has the special something. “Joachim is good-looking, he has charisma and looks good on photos. I think he has as big potential as Maria Sharapova”, Chris Forburg says.

Even if Pim Pim hasn´t won that much title like she did yet, he has good possibilities. “His “market value” grew already after the title in Memphis, but especially because of his success at the US Open. Pim Pims “value” is today about 90% better than at the same time last year when he was not that successful yet,” säger Pim Pims agent Per Hjertqvist.
Hertqvist says that the success in the sports is always the most important thing in marketing for a sportsman :”A sportsman can look fantastic, but if he doesn´t have success, it will be much more difficult.” This means for Pim Pim that he should at least stay in the ranking position he is right now or even get better.

Then some uninteresting marketing talk.

What do you say about the photos, Pim Pim?
I like them, even if I don´t like all of them so much. I am not a perfect model. It is difficult to get told what you should do for a longer time and to look serious for 10 minutes or longer” says Pim Pim about the photo session which was held the day after he lost against Lleyton Hewitt at the US Open 2004.

How do you want the agency to present you: dangerous or nice?
For me this is not important, but I wouldn´t agree if I should pose too naked, there is stop for me.

Did you model before this?
Yes, but only half.

Half?
Yes, it was some years ago. Magnus Norman and I were posing in costumes, but later in the papers you could only see Magnus and a little bit of me” says Pim Pim and laughs.

But this time it was the “whole” Joachim Johansson and he even starts to get well-known everywhere in Sweden.
On Monday the first Grand Slam tournament of the year will start, Pim Pim is ready for it. And in New York Chris Forburg and his colleagues are also ready…
