Pim-Pim will have a press-conference today and reveal his plan for the future. His injured shoulder have healed over all expectations and he have been able to increase his practice time very much.

The roumur says his first plan is Sthlm Open next week!

More to come...

Bekräftat: "Pim-Pim" klar för Stockholm Open
Tennis - ATP-touren


Skadedrabbade Joachim "Pim-Pim" Johansson är klar för comeback i samband med Stockholm Open. Under fredagen håller svensken en presskonferens och ska då berätta mer om sina framtidsplaner.

För åtta månader sedan avslutade Joachim "Pim-Pim" Johansson sin karriär som tennisspelare efter en axelskada. Nu är dock den hårtslående svensken redo för en sensationell comeback. Skadan ska ha läkt över förväntan den senaste tiden, "Pim-Pim" har ökat sin träningsdos och Stockholm Opens tävlingschef Per Hjertquist bekräftar för SVT att "Pim-Pim" har tilldelats ett wild card.

Under sommarens Swedish Open tränade "Pim-Pim" tillsammans med Carlos Moya som tyckte att svensken hade mer att ge på tennisbanan. Spanjoren förmedlade, enligt SVD, kontakten till sin fysioterapeut Joan Alloza Rosselló som hjälpt simmare och volleybollspelare med liknande skador. Rosselló är helt övertygad om att "Pim-Pims" axel håller för en ny satsning på elitnivå.

Inflammationen som fick "Pim-Pim" att sluta med tennis i januari tidigare i år ska enligt uppgifter vara helt borta.

Att "Pim-Pim" nu ställer upp i Stockholm Open är kanske lite plåster på såren för arrangören, som i onsdags fick chockbeskedet att världstvåan Roger Federer drar sig ur turneringen.

Johansson To Make Return To ATP Circuit

© Getty Images
Joachim JohanssonFormer ATP World No. 9 Joachim "Pim-Pim" Johansson of Sweden announced on Friday that he would resume his professional tennis career starting at the If Stockholm Open, where he has received a wild card for the main draw, which starts on Monday.

The 26-year-old Johansson originally retired from the ATP circuit in February after suffering from shoulder injuries for three years.

“My shoulder feels much better and when Pelle (Per Hjertquist, Tournament Director) asked me to play here it felt like a very exciting challenge. It’s extra special for me to play this tournament, with home court advantage and with the wonderful atmosphere in the arena”, Johansson said.

The If Stockholm Open will be Johansson’s only event in 2008, while he will resume a full schedule starting in 2009.

The 6’6’’ right-hander played his last professional match in Stockholm last year, defeating Carlos Berlocq in the first round before withdrawing from his second match due to illness.

Johansson captured three ATP titles at 2004 Memphis (d. Kiefer) and 2005 Adelaide (d. Dent) and Marseille (d. Ljubicic). His best Grand Slam performance came at the ’04 US Open, when he beat defending champion Andy Roddick in the quarterfinals before falling to Lleyton Hewitt in the semifinals. He reached a career-high No. 9 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings on February 14, 2005.

Joachim “Pim-Pim” Johansson, the Swede with a cannon-like seve, has announced that he will come back to tennis after announcing his retirement earlier this year.

After years of struggling with a shoulder injury, surgery and illness, Joachim Johansson has announced officially that he is returning to the sport of tennis.

Johansson held a press conference at the Royal Tennis Hall in Stockholm on Friday to accept the final wildcard for the upcoming Stockholm Open. The Swede looked to have a promising career before being sidelined with debilitating shoulder pain. He burst onto the tennis scene in 2004, creating a huge stir by ousting defending US Open champion Andy Roddick in the first round at Flushing Meadows. He marched all the way to the semi-finals.

In the summer of 2005 he had surgery on his shoulder. He attempted several comebacks over the next two years, but he never seemed fully healed. In February of this year, Pim-Pim announced that the surgery and subsequent rehabilitation had not been effective, and that as a result he was forced to retire.

Of late, Johansson has been working with Spaniard Carlos Moya and his team to try different rehab strategies. The new treatments, as well as some much-needed rest, seems to have done the trick. Johansson will make his 2008 debut in front of his home crowd, all of whom will undoubtedly have their fingers crossed.

Is there any emoticon for extreme ecstacy???? cos WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTT YEH :D Most enjoyable serve to watch from this generation of players, damn ive still only got 1 set worth o that USO 04 match and i just cant get enough of that incredible raw power, the ice water veins, the beautiful backhand and the ridiculous forehand, and brilliant movement for a giant.... Damn it damn it damn it i wont get to see his matches in australia!!


Anyone know where i can get videos of him playing, hes so f@#$ing exciting ... And goood on him for workin with Moya, Moya had a serious shoulder prob back in 05 I remember when he played the French (still made Federer sweat more than any of the other players), but yeh hes obviously totally over it now, so im sure his team would know best how to fix it... Damn i really want him back soooo badly, theres just something so exciting about his game even though its dominated by his serve hes not as borgin as rodick
