That is a tough draw! But i just hope that Pimpim is playing! Other things do not count at the moment!

well i hope Pim Pim doesn't rush and come to play in Paris if he's seriously injured..

Chris-swede

Pimpim has a virus infection, could be away in a pair of days. He will first play on Tuesday or Wednesday, so 3 or 4 days rest for him.

Interesting: 4 times a Quarterfinal in the last 4 weeks, and every time he not reached the semis. That is a shame!

Virus Infection... at least hes not injured!!

ARTICLE:Johansson withdraws from Paris Masters

October 30 2004 at 03:36PM

Paris - Fast rising Swedish tennis star Joachim Johansson has withdrawn from the ATP Paris Masters tournament, according to an announcement made by event organisers on Saturday.

The 22-year-old US Open semi-finalist and seeded nine for the Bercy tournament is suffering from a fever which forced him to retire from his quarter-final clash with compatriot Michael Ryderstedt in Stockholm on Friday.

Johansson's place in the tournament goes to Mariano Zabaleta of Argentina. - Sapa-AFP

Poor Yoav! He wont get to see pimpim, and he went all the way to Paris ... *sigh*

Pina

What a bad news. Hopefully he will play better and get some better luck next year.

Thanks Pimpim for this great year! I wish you the best, get healthy and take some time off! See u then again next yearm, then in the Top 10!!!

This is a terrible way for Pim to close the year. :(

I feel badly for Yoav as well, but there will be a lot of other good players at the tournament.

Now we have to keep patient until January. Does Adelaide start the second week in Jan?

Canuck_Chick
10-30-2004, 07:24 PM
Too bad for Yoav!! Go and watch the rest of your favs!!
I think Pim Pim made a good decision to withdraw. The chance of qualifing to Houston was small so there's no point rushing it. He should have a nice rest and get ready to kick some butts next season!!! :yeah: Congratulations on an awesome year!! :yeah:

such a positive girl that Canuck-Chick :yeah: hehe. Guys, isnt there like a Scandic Challenge in Dec? in Sweden? and isnt Joachim playing?

I think J prolly over fatigued himself...! Like I was saying.. 5 tournaments in a row?? crazy! and fatigue weakens the body.. invites viruses to move in for a while :sad:

Adelaide's the first week, sydney the second week and then the aussie open the next two weeks

:lol: thank u...i'm positive now, we'll see how i'm gonna hold up after the first month without Pim Pim tho ;)

I agree with you on his schedule. Maybe he committed to the tournaments before the USO and he thought he wouldn't make it into the quarters of each tourney....

lol ya! we better yell at him for overcomitting!..... nah, he prolly can't hear me since he's prolly on a plane to Australia... :p

Isnt he moving to London before Christmas then going to Aussie for Christmas?

Jexy
10-31-2004, 03:48 PM
to my understanding he wasnt moving any time soon... it was one of those "future" plans I think..
:confused:

I swear someone posted it in this forum but i dont want to go and look...anyone know :wavey:

Sharon
10-31-2004, 05:18 PM
i thought it was something for the future plans too :confused: but yeah, way too lazy to flip thru the pages to look... i think its in the Chitchat thread tho...

Sharon
10-31-2004, 05:25 PM
ok so i found this quote in the "does pimpim still live in sweden" thread... sounds logical :lol: it appears he IS moving before christmas :p

Pim Pim still lives in Sweden, but he will move to London soon (he said before christmas). He says he has very good possibilities to pracice in London and this is why he wants to move there. He didn´t seem to like Monaco that much.

This was in a Swedish newspaper during the US Open, but I have the article at home and don´t remember everything exactly. If there was more information in it, I will let you guys know!

This is a nice thread!
I guess a lot of things will happen hear when the tennis season is finally over for this year :-((
I still don´t know how to survive the november and december when nothing´s gonna happen.
But I wanted to say that I am very happy that I came to this forum and met all you other Pim Pim fans, this is just so nice!

Sommarsverige
10-31-2004, 07:29 PM
Just discovered that I posted the topic before at the wrong place :(
Of course, I wanted to post it in the Off season thread.
Does someone know if I can move it there???

Unfortunately I think Pim Pim was almost the only Swede who was not planned to play the Scandic Challenge. What a pity, because he could have convinced me to go ;) ;)
But I think I heard (or read) somewhere that Pim Pim is always in Australia already before christmas, because he is celebrating christmas with Jaslyn and the rest of the Hewitts and he is practicing with Lleyton.
But I am not sure if it is the same this year also...

The only thing I could imagine is that Pim Pim will play "Elitserien" (the Swedish tennis bundesliga!)

Pina
11-01-2004, 11:07 AM
Pimpim stayed with Hewitts in the past two Christmas, maybe he will go to Australia this year too.
But now I'm more concerned about his health. is he getting better? :rolleyes:

I'm sure he'll rest up at home with his family and then when he's healthy he'll come to adelaide. I doubt he'd want to travel while sick

Sommarsverige, I noticed that on tennis.se it no longer says Joachim johansson under Scandic Challenge, but it did at one point.
Maybe you can check him out at Elitserien?? Take lots of photos, you too Björkman_girl!

Pimpim should be healthier by the end of the week, he'll pack his bags, prolly move house and then when everything's settled I imagine he'd spend time in Australia again over christmas, I mean, he has like 3 events planned in January in AUS, so I would think he's going there again. :shrug:

omg... there was a small part of me that was kind of hoping he wouldn't come to Sydney! I mean, I want him there... but he may get a little scared seeing me at all his matches :scared:
Maybe that's the role of the pimsters? To freak Joachim out. Jexy can stare at him, I'll be his Aussie Paparazzi, and Siobhan can show him Mardy's broken racquet!

PS. crazzzy_grrl, are you going to any tournaments in 2005?

If i do go to any, it would probably only be the hopman cup. Living in perth it will be easy to go too, but no lleyton or kim playing here next year
