Thankyou. He has a good record with challengers. Always does well in them.

Is he a wildcard in this?, because he isnt playing through qualifying and he isn't on the main draw sheet?

Sweden's former Australian Open champion Thomas Johansson became the first major casualty for next week's Soweto Open on Tuesday when he withdrew from the event because of a lingering foot injury.

Johannson, whose ranking among the world's top 10 players has plummeted to 162nd after battling his present injury for over a year, was also a late withdrawal from the recent South African Open at Montecasino.

He vowed at the time to make amends and play in South Africa as soon as possible - claiming the Soweto Open, a Challenger event on the ATP circuit, would be an ideal occasion "because I had heard so much about the area and dearly loved to see it at first-hand.




"Unfortunately it will not now be possible," he informed South African Tennis Association CEO Ian Smith, "But I remain keen to play in South Africa again at the first opportunity."

Johannson played in the 2008 South African Open in East London
Johannson played in the 2008 South African Open in East London, a Challenger event on the ATP circuit before the elevation of the event to a position on the ATP's main circuit this year.

He reached the semi-finals before losing a thrilling encounter to Croatia's Ivan Ljubicic, the eventual winner of the tournament.

Johannson's place in the draw will be taken by Australian Joseph Sirianni. - Sapa

I spoke to him last week. The recovery of his foot could take very long, so he is not sure if he will able to play again.

A friend is in Düsseldorf today, but she has not seen Thomas. :sad:
Don't know if the news were true. :confused: (Bob is not there as well. Strange)

I watched Söderling and only Robert and Vinci watched the match.
