He first hurt his knee at Indian Wells, so no it's not only Rebound Ace that allegedly causes injuries.

He know races horses.
Hi everybody.

I remember Carlsson defenting Emilio Sánchez-Vicario both in Hilversum and in Kithbuel -needless to say i watched it on TV- , and also, winning in Barcelona, in four sets against a young Muster. He was like a human backboard, in addition to the aforemention.

this is the only footage i could find of carlsson. there is some highlights at both the beginning and end of the video. this was slightly b/f my time but it's a shame this guy had so many knee injuries. did he originally injure his knee playing? i know he was a big time junior.

Got heaps more info about him, but he had RG champ all over him especially in the years between 89 and 93.

what happened to kent carlsson?!

i remember that when i was a kid, i saw some of his matches on eurosport around 1987-1988 he was a superb baseliner.. and then he dissapeared.
funnily today i learned that he was born on 1968 and not 1958
so why he gave up at the age of 20 when he was so succesfull? a big injury?
