Hard-serving Joachim Johansson had shoulder surgery Wednesday and is expected to be sidelined for eight months. Johansson, ranked 14th in the world, has been bothered by a sore right shoulder since January and it worsened during Wimbledon, where he lost in the third round. ``Surgery went fine,'' doctor Ulf Nordenson said Wednesday.
