I asked Pim Pim about his plans. He said he need to practice and he wont play at the beginning in 2009. So I dont think he is going to Australia.

Publicerad 3 december 2008



Pim-Pim trivs hemma i Södertälje Tennisstjärnan har ingen brådska att göra comeback

Tennis Joachim ”Pim-Pim” Johansson är tillbaka i Södertälje igen. Med ny flickvän och en pånyttfödd rörlighet i sin tidigare så sargade kropp. Men det dröjer ett tag innan han är tillbaka på ATP-touren.

När Pim-Pim klev ut på banan i Stockholm Open i oktober var det en utmaning och ett spännande experiment. Någon riktig comeback var det däremot inte.

Den får vänta några månader till, minst.

Direkt efter Stockholm Open åkte Pim-Pim ner till Mallorca för att börja jobba med sin nya fysioterapeut Joan Alloza Rosselló. Där inleddes den långa, mödosamma vägen mot toppen igen.

Allting började egentligen i Båstad i somras. Det var där Alloza Rosselló såg Pim-Pim träna, tyckte att han såg lite för bra ut för att ha slutat och erbjöd sig att hjälpa till om Pim-Pim funderade på en comeback.

Pim-Pim, som under sommaren också inledde en ny karriär som tränare för finska löftet Henri Kontinen, bestämde sig inte där och då att göra en satsning på att komma tillbaka. Men efter ett tag beslutade han sig för att avbryta samarbetet med Kontinen.

– Jag trivdes jättebra som tränare, det var ett kanonjobb och han är en riktigt lovande spelare och hur trevlig som helst. Men jag ville fundera i lugn och ro på hur jag skulle göra. Jag slutade ju inte för att jag inte tyckte att det var kul att spela tennis, utan för att jag inte hade något val, säger Pim-Pim.

Och efter att ha tänkt över situationen ordentligt kom han fram till att när möjligheten fanns att börja spela igen, kunde han inte låta den försvinna.

Under hösten har han varit nere hos Alloza Rosselló på Malloroca två gånger och sakta men säkert jobbat med styrka och rörlighet. Han säger att han inte har känt sig så här bra fysiskt sedan 1999/2000.

Men han har inte bråttom tillbaka. I slutet av året åker han till Australien, där han kommer att träna och dessutom har ett antal uppvisningsmatcher inplanerade. Efter det räknar han med att utvärdera sin situation på nytt.

På resan får han också sällskap av flickvännen Johanna Westerberg, 31, som är golfproffs och inleder nästa säsong med ett par tävlingar i Australien i februari.

– För mig är det superbra att kunna åka ner så tidigt, oftast har jag åkt ner en vecka innan. Nu kan jag ladda i lugn och ro, säger Westerberg.

Men först ska Westerberg avsluta den här säsongen. På fredag åker hon ner till Dubai, för att spela Dubai Ladies Masters som avgörs nästa vecka.

Thanks so much for posting that article, Peggy

Pim Pim says mainly in the article that he won´t hurry with his comeback, but it will at least last 2 more months until he comes back to the tour.
He has been working with Alloza Rosselló (the physio) on Mallorca several times and he says he will travel to Australia together with his girlfriend in january. Pim Pim will play some show matches there and of course he will practice hard.
His girl friend is a golf pro (I didn´t know that before) and she will follow him to Australia and play tournaments there.

Awww, I soooooo can´t wait to see Pim Pim back on tour

Default Re: Breaking News: Pim-Pim might do a serious comeback!!

This has just popped up on the Adelaide WTC website - the tournament ROBIN was supposed to play. It now never mentions Robin's existence....



Current Player: Joachim Johansson

More affectionately known as ‘Pim Pim’, Johansson has won three ATP singles titles including Adelaide in 2005 where he defeated fellow WTC player Taylor Dent. Pim Pim holds the record for most aces served in one match as he aced Andre Agassi 51 times in the 4th round of the 2005 Australian Open (though he still lost the match in four sets). Johansson retired from professional tennis on 1 February 2008 due to his persistent shoulder injury. Johansson said there was "no other option" than to quit. But on 3 October 2008 he announced that he will return to the world of tennis and that his shoulder injury had healed. He was given a wild card to compete in the 2008 Stockholm Open. He stamped his return by beating Nicholas Mahut in the first round. He will use the World Tennis Challenge as the platform for his assault on the Australian Open 2009.





Does this mean robin is injured and not coming to australia???????????? :'(
I mean its GREAT that I'm gonna get to see Pim Pim of course but I bought Adelaide tix to see MAGNUS!
and does that last line mean that pim pim wants to play aus open? because that doesnt make any sense - adelaide is on while aus open qualifying is on, how does he expect to get in? wild card? i dont think so! aussies would NEVER give a swede a wild card.

I am SOOOOOO confused!!!!

Email Memorial Drive. I assume that's where it is, yeah? I sent them an email this time last year, they were really helpful. If they didn't know what was going on they referred me to some one else whou would have some idea.

Default Re: Breaking News: Pim-Pim might do a serious comeback!!

So i emailed world tennis challenge regarding the swedish team and got this back... I think its realy funny that he calls him pim pim


Hi Christina

Yes... Thomas was desperate to play but he is injured.... Robin then confirmed but we are not sure why he has pulled out.. management made this call... I am not sure where he is playing... you could check the brisbane international website but I don't believe he is signed there so I am thinking New Zealand maybe...?

Pim Pim (Joachim) was someone we went to originally when we were thinking about this concept and we are thrilled he is playing as he is very keen to make a comeback and as he is a past winner in Adelaide we are thrilled to see him back here... I think Mats Wilander and Pim Pim will make a good team

Sorry for any confusion.... this is the nature of most tennis events..

Cheers

As late as I am, just found out he's playing Adelaide. I thought this would happen! Gah. If they put this exhibition on the weekend (you know, some people have to take time off work!) I would consider going....

It's weird that they're saying he'll play AO, since he can't get in. Does he even have a protected ranking? He really should be in Brisbane opening that new stadium on Friday.
