Re: Magnus Norman

For the ones who are interested:
Magnus was in Båstad last week during the tournament there and he was working for Catella even there. I had the impression that he is very happy with his new life also.

Re: Magnus Norman

a little blurb about what magnus is up to lately from tennis-x:

Former No. 2-ranked Magnus Norman is working as a coach for Sweden's 14-and-under boys' squad that competed in the European Championships, works for an investment company, and is studying marketing and economics at a business school in Stockholm: "I have a lot of experience that the Federation wants me to chare with the junior players -- how I practiced, how I thought, so on," Norman told Tennis News Europe.org. "I think that by being there and providing these services, I can help them a lot. I'm also working with my home club, again with the younger guys, so I'm still very involved with tennis. I do coach, but not every day, as I have many other commitments and also because I cannot be on the court too much as I still have problems with my injuries and it can be too painful at times...The level of play has dropped slightly in Sweden recently, and people are starting to worry that after me and after Joachim Johansson there may be a few years before we see a really outstanding players coming. I think a lot of it has to do with role models. In Sweden we have never had a woman player at the very top of the game whereas boys have had a series -- first (Bjorn) Borg then (Mats) Wilander and (Stefan) Edberg, (Thomas) Enqvist, me and many others -- so there was always someone to look up to. What we need now is a female player who could compete regularly against the likes of Justine Henin-Hardenne and Venus Williams."

i hope he's happy in what he's doing. i hope he's not in too much pain when he tries to play. i was glad to see his name popping up in some news!

Re: Magnus Norman

another article related to the one above...

Norman Returns As Swedish Federation Coach
By Tennis Week
08/04/2005

Five years ago, Magnus Norman reached the Roland Garros final and attained a career-high rank of No. 2. Nagging hip and knee injuries forced the owner of 12 ATP tournament titles and $4.5 million in prize money to officially announce his retirement at a press conference during last October's Stockholm Open.


Recently, Norman returned to the court — as a coach for Sweden's 14-and-under boys' squad that competed in the European Championships.

The 29-year-old Norman spends more time hitting the books rather than balls these days as a student studying marketing and economics at a business school in Stockholm. Norman, who works for an investment company in Stockholm, also spends time working with juniors as a coach for the Swedish Tennis Federation. In an interview with Tennis News Europe.org, Norman said he's enjoying being back out on the court in a coaching capacity, though hip pain prevents him from playing daily.

Both Norman and Gustavo Kuerten, who needed 11 match points to beat the stubborn Swede in the 2000 French Open final, underwent arthroscopic hip surgery performed by the same surgeon within two years of that final. Norman underwent surgery on both hips on January 23, 2004 in Nashville, Tennessee. The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Byrd, the same surgeon who operated on Norman on August 21st, 2001 and on Kuerten in February of 2002.

Despite his chronic hip pain, Norman has shared valuable advice to Swedish juniors.
"I have a lot of experience that the Federation wants me to chare with the junior players — how I practiced, how I thought, so on," Norman told Tennis News Europe.org. "I think that by being there and providing these services, I can help them a lot. I'm also working with my home club, again with the younger guys, so I'm still very involved with tennis. I do coach, but not every day, as I have many other commitments and also because I cannot be on the court too much as I still have problems with my injuries and it can be too painful at times."

Though Sweden's boys have been successful in European junior events, Norman conceded the quality of play has dipped slightly in Sweden, causing concerns about the country's future success on the pro circuit. "The competition is very tough and so the two best boys that ultimately get selected for the European Championships are usually very good players," Norman said. "But the level of play has dropped slightly in Sweden recently, and people are starting to worry that after me and after Joachim Johansson there may be a few years before we see a really outstanding players coming."

A long line of Swedish men from Bjorn Borg to Mats Wilander to Stefan Edberg to Thomas Johansson have raised Grand Slam title trophies. Norman said the lack of Swedish success on the WTA Tour is due, in part, to the fact Sweden has not produced a top-ranked woman.

"I think a lot of it has to do with role models," Norman said. "In Sweden we have never had a woman player at the very top of the game whereas boys have had a series — first Borg then Wilander and Edberg, Enqvist, me and many others — so there was always someone to look up to. What we need now is a female player who could compete regularly against the likes of Justine Henin-Hardenne and Venus Williams."

Nearly one year removed from his official retirement from tennis, Norman envisions returning to the sport — possibly as an agent, coach or administrator — in the future. "I definitely want to be involved with tennis. I don't know whether that will be as a coach, or in the business side of the sport," Norman said. "I've been involved with tennis since I was eight years old, so it's difficult to leave."

The man who was briefly Martina Hingis' beau jokingly admits that acquiring a college education has taught him a valuable lesson in number crunching.

"I'm learning economics and getting used to count higher than 40, which is as much as you need in tennis, so maybe I can help some players as an agent or something like this," Norman said. "We'll see what happens, but I'll still be involved with tennis, as it's given me a very good life."
