Yepp, I think so too! Simon would have loved to play there.

I asked Jonas about Simon. He said he probably will play in St.Poelten.
What a pity.

As there's Roland-Garros just after, I think Enqvists' fans (in Paris), would be happy if he doesn't play in Dussedorlf, it would be a chance for them to see him practricing. And, maybe, he'll have to play the qualies in Paris, so that is maybe why he's not in the team. Well, at the moment, I'm happy because each year, we "pray" to not see him in the WTC Team. Or, when he's in the team, we "pray" for a loss of Sweden (the only once in the year, we wish that) just to be able to see him in Roland-Garros on sat and sunday for the charity day (Benny Berthet).

Anyway, good luck to Sweden. And, hope the Germans fans on this board will go there to support them.

Val, I am quite sure Tompa won´t play in Duesseldorf, because I know only Pim Pim, Toker and Jonas will be in the team.
Of course, I would like to see him there, but I am also happy with the 3 others ;)
I will support the Swedes as much as I can in Duesseldorf!!!!

Choupi
05-10-2005, 08:26 AM
OK...so, having both chanels Paris 1ère and ARD, I wish that Sweden face either France or Germany! :)

Francine
05-13-2005, 05:41 PM
Sweden should be able to win against Germany and the USA. I think Spain will prove to be to difficult :)

:boxing: German tv, they're actually playing Germany! :bigcry:

Sommarsverige
05-13-2005, 06:19 PM
I think the group is okay for Sweden.
I am so happy they are not in a group with Argentina, so I am still
hoping for a final Sweden - Argentina ;)

Talk to you soon again, I will go to Duesseldorf tomorrow morning :)

Kristen
05-14-2005, 11:58 AM
USA: Spadea, Morrison, Bryan x2
Really? Why don't they just have Tripp Phillips, Brian Vahaly and Alex Bogomolov? I mean, no disrespect to them, they are my absolute favourites but...don't they want to win this?

Having said that, GO JEFF!!!!!!!

Aleksa's Laydee
05-14-2005, 05:28 PM

Hi girls,

just a short HI from Düsseldorf.
This week started like the Hamburg week - with lots of rain and I can´t stand rain anylonger.
But all my faves are here, so this is the most important thing.

Thomas practiced today with Pim Pim and he (Thomas) will play singles tomorrow against Robredo. It´s gonna be difficult....

The only thing I am sad about is that the Argentines are playing on CC1 at the same time and I want to see both matches, but this is bad luck...

Kom igen Sverige ;)

Francine
05-16-2005, 12:18 PM
He beat Robredo 7-6 6-1 :worship:

Choupi
05-16-2005, 12:53 PM
I only saw the match point, because they showed Clément vs Gaudio. But when I discovered the score, I was like :eek: ! Well done Thomas. I hope you keep on that good path! :D

Aleksa's Laydee
05-16-2005, 05:09 PM
EXCELLENT THOMAS!!! :D:D:D:D

Thomas/Jonas lost in the doubles in 3 sets...im not sure who against though :scratch:

Sommarsverige
05-16-2005, 10:25 PM
It was a fantastic match of Thomas.
I still cannot believe he really beat Robredo on clay... ;)
Think this must have been the best match of Thomas on clay I have seen, very sad that they did not take advantage of the leading... :(

Correct me if I'm wrong... but I'm pretty sure:
The blonde chick is Jaslyn
The guy next to her, trained with Jonas and Mats Wilander in Melbourne. You can see him in my pics, or here... what do you think? I mean, I dont care all that much, but its cool to see Jonas is working with someone regularly again. Possibly.

pim pim(:hearts: suit!) & Haas

I saw two single matches yesterday, during Pim Pim's match Jonas was there and listening to music. When Tojo was playing, Pim Pim sat beside Jaslyn eating and chatting. How united Swedes are! :lol:

You and the rest of the thread! LOL Who's the guy on the left? He's handsome (but not as big a spunkrat as Jonas :lol: )

I know I'm biased and all...being 'bjorkman' girl but...if they were in a club... Jonas (and the other old guy :drool: ) would prob be the only two I'd seriously check out :scratch: My first line to pimpim would be 'so...when's the next appointment with Toni and Guy?" (hair salon) Not that Tojo doesn't look nice there, but I think of him as being totally sweet, and look at his pose! :awww: wouldn't want to corrupt that sweet angel boy :tape: If Jonas had a younger, unmarried lookalike... look out world!

Damn you Europeans and your television coverage :awww: :cool:

I'm not playing tennis, unfortunately. :sad: But I can tell you that if those guys were playing at the same club, I'd be a true champion! Of course, I'll spend all my time playing tennis, to get a chance to meet them, as much as I can! ;)

He kind of gives me Gary Sinise vibes. I adore Gary Sinise and all things associated with CSI.

Johanssons test G-Class under extreme conditions


Swedish tennis stars Joachim and Thomas Johansson are not related, but they have something in common: Their passion for dynamic car driving. On Thursday they took the opportunity to go on a spectacular safari through the moon landscape of the open cast brown coalfield Garzweiler 1.

After a drive in an open-top Mercedes-Benz SLK 200 Compressor the two Swedish tennis aces switched to G-class vehicles in order to master wild, challenging terrain. "It was an incredible experience, almost like a rally", 22-year-old Joachim Johansson said later. He drove a G-Class 400 CDI through the difficult territory with sand dunes and steep descents. The current No. 12 in the INDESIT ATP Entry Ranking spent almost one and a half hours trying to find new tracks in the coalfield.


Meanwhile, Thomas Johansson prefered to get a driver from Mercedes-Benz, enjoying the experience as his namesake Joachim: "I had a lot of fun", the winner of the 2002 Australian Open said.
