........oh god how am i going to explain this :haha:

:lol: just tell him the website (www.myspace.com), and to create an account. (make sure the name is Thomas Johansson and not some weird username so we can find him) then tell him to let you know the next day if he'd done that, and you tell us, and we'll add him as a friend :D

Aleksa's Laydee
06-01-2006, 11:49 AM
:haha: you've got it all planned! I'l tell him and give it to him written down on a piece of paper :p

Kristen
06-02-2006, 02:17 AM
I think Fee set one up for JMG, and he eventually partly took it over... maybe you or someone could set up a general email address, to link with the myspace, and get it started for him, in case he is hopeless with all things internet :lol:

You know, just the basics, add some photos, a background some friends *hint hint* and what not... What do you think?

margaret_gn
06-02-2006, 02:51 AM
The exact flight details aren't confirmed yet cos I'm still on the waiting list for the return flight, but the flight to stockholm is pretty much definite at this point. Should be arriving there noon of 30 July. When I leave Sydney still depends on whether I still want the 3 day stopover to singapore or not... but yeah I will definitely go to the Stockholm tournament because that was the whole reason for me choosing Sweden ;)

Kristen that is a brilliant idea. We so should. What do you think guys? Although it does mean that we have to make up an e-mail address for him doesn't it...

Aleksa's Laydee
06-02-2006, 03:03 PM
I'l help :D

margaret_gn
06-03-2006, 03:18 AM
let's get started and surprise him with a myspace space that's all set and ready to use!

to start off, what would his e-mail address be? Siobhan do you want to make up an address for him? one from gmail or yahoo should do it. i just can't think of a good username at the moment.
I was thinking that we could all add photos of us with him to the photos section...
actually i'll go start another thread for this.

Aleksa's Laydee
06-07-2006, 11:41 AM

OMG...Tojo:tears:

Francine
06-19-2006, 05:09 PM
Vacek is ranked outside the top 300, Thomas had some bad luck losing the 1st set but losing that 3rd set is just plain dissapointing.

He has so many points to defend at wimbledon, I hope he has a good draw so that he can play himself into the tournament.

Björki
06-19-2006, 07:36 PM
OMG Thomas :sad:

Sommarsverige
06-19-2006, 08:43 PM
Thomas....what happened....??? :sad: :sad:

Aleksa's Laydee
06-19-2006, 09:40 PM
Johansson vs Vacek...saw only the second set tiebreak...very tense stuff. Something was clearly wrong with Tojo and I wasn't the only one to notice it. He was doubling over a few times and looked very close to tears - don't know whether he had an injury, was agreived about the grass itself, had problems with his eye, had problems breathing, or was just upset with missing some balls Vacek played well and always had a chance of an upset on paper...but I didn't expect it to actually happen







Poor baby!!! :sobbing:

Francine
06-19-2006, 10:47 PM
I read he thought the centre court was very slippery and he was afraid of getting injured.

margaret_gn
06-19-2006, 11:05 PM
Tojo :sad: hope he's all ok and fit for wimbly...

Björki

Johansson suffered a shock first-round defeat

Number one seed Thomas Johansson was knocked out in the first round of the Nottingham Open by Czech Jan Vacek.

The Swede is the world number 21 and won the event in 2001, but he was beaten 6-7 (6-8) 7-6 (13-11) 4-6 by Vacek, ranked 224 places below him.

The closely-fought match lasted two hours and 19 minutes.

Neither broke serve in the first two sets, but Vacek finally made the breakthrough in the ninth game of the final set and closed out the match.

Following the defeat Johansson said the game should not have been played because of the dampness of the court under overcast skies.

"I thought it was wet and dangerous to play on for both of us, and I told the umpire," said Johansson.

"I cannot do more than tell him the court is dangerous. He said the court was new and that was why it was slippery."

Johansson's fears that a player would get injured came true soon after when Andy Murray's elder brother Jamie twisted his knee during a first-round doubles match.

and we're getting wimbly coverage down here!!! there hasn't been any tennis on tv for a long time so i'm happy :D

Aleksa's Laydee

yay cool ^^

Francine
06-22-2006, 09:53 AM
Thomas is the 12th seed at Wimbledon, he went up 9 places :)

Aleksa's Laydee
06-22-2006, 11:24 AM
:haha: by losing in r1 at Queens and losing his semi final points? :haha: thats crazy but awesome :D

Francine
06-22-2006, 02:02 PM
Its because he did so well last year. Guess he won't be going up so many places next year ;)

Björki

is court 13 bad? are you going Siobhan?

Kristen
06-25-2006, 03:53 PM
i fear jonas will take him out...hes reached the final of notts :scared:Do not overestimate the Björk-Man. :angel:
Either way I will be happy. It would be ideal for ToJo to take out Jonas, and continue the way he did, the last time they met in a GS. If it's when I think it was, Aus Open 2002. Then Jonas can go and win doubles and we'll all be happy :D Problem solved :yeah:

Aleksa's Laydee
06-25-2006, 07:01 PM
is court 13 bad? are you going Siobhan?


no court 2 is the unlucky one ;)

no im going tuesday BUT lets all do the rain dance tomorrow and it will get postponed untill tuesday ;)

Francine
06-27-2006, 02:48 PM
Jonas won 36 76 61 61, kinda saw that coming but I still wonder what happened after that tiebreak.

Thomas will go down about 20 places in the rankings, maybe even more :bigcry:

I think Bastad is going to be his next tounament, hope Jonas does well at Wimbledon!

Björki
06-27-2006, 06:04 PM
I am sorry for Thomas :sad: but very happy for Jonas.

Aleksa's Laydee

Francine
06-27-2006, 11:00 PM
Thomas Thomas Thomas :rolleyes: thought you could do it after the first set :sad:

So what happened Siobhan, did Jonas start to play better or did Thomas lose it after he lost that tiebreak?

margaret_gn
06-28-2006, 02:13 AM
So sad for Thomas. Remind me when was the last time he won 2 matches in a row?

Sommarsverige
06-28-2006, 06:58 AM
I am also so sad about Thomas loss :sad:
He said in an interview in a swedish newspaper that he will go back to Monte Carlo now and think about his future. He usually wanted to play Båstad and then hardcourt tournaments in the US, but he doesn´t know if he will keep the plans.
He said he doesn´t like to play at the momet :sad:

Björki
06-28-2006, 06:57 PM
that are really sad news :sad: do you think it's because he had no
sucess on grass this year?

Sommarsverige
06-28-2006, 09:26 PM
that are really sad news :sad: do you think it's because he had no
sucess on grass this year?

I don´t know! Probably because he lost so many matches in a row and maybe also because he knows that he will become a father...I so much hope that he will keep on playing and I guess with some good matches, he would get the fun of playing back :)

Aleksa's Laydee
06-28-2006, 09:27 PM
TOJO WILL BE A DAD!!!!!!!???? no way when was this??

Aleksa's Laydee
06-28-2006, 09:29 PM
So what happened Siobhan, did Jonas start to play better or did Thomas lose it after he lost that tiebreak?


dont know...was confident he could win so left at bout 5-4 in the second :o bad fan i know :sad:

he was complaining about line calls again :rolleyes: and i think he just choked against his friend...

Francine
06-29-2006, 01:25 AM
Oh God complaining again, that's no good. I just hope he keeps playing, don't like all that talk about retirement.

Aleksa's Laydee
06-29-2006, 12:28 PM
he did his usual...warm up and then 'umpire i need the toilet'....whats that all about :scratch:

Kristen
06-29-2006, 05:00 PM
:hug: ToJo... go home, relax and hopefully heal that eye.
Then ah, drop by the Swedish tournaments and start fresh in January ;)

That's HILARIOUS, about his continued toilet antics. I find it rather amusing!
