Sweden has produced some very talented - and quite lovely - players. Stefan Olsson, Peter Wikstrom, and then we have my personal favourites, Marcus Jonsson
, Niclas Larsson
and Johan Andersson.
I do not feel that the sport is acknowledged enough. Although I'm sure I'll forget to follow it every now and then, this should be a good place to inform both other people, and myself. I'll start by posting a few photos...

This week in Sydney, Niclas made it to the semi-finals of the 2nd Draw. He and Michael Dobbie [AUS] were knocked out by Stuurmann/Scheffers [NED] in the first round of main draw doubles.
Johan Andersson lost in the Quads quarterfinals to David Wagner [who went on to make it to the final; which to my knowledge, was not completed]. He partnered Dorrie Timmermanns van hall [NED] to make it to the Quads Doubles semi-final.
Unfortunately the weather was not on our side this week. There were delays due to heat, and 2-3 days were re-scheduled due to rain. Today, three matches were completed in the morning, and at 3.30pm this evening it was decided that all remaining matches would be cancelled. It's one of those days where there's nothing but clouds, and constant rain. When my photos are uploaded, they will be here
