”Pim-Pim” fick nobben

Publicerad: 4 mars 2009, 07.03. Senast ändrad: 4 mars 2009, 07.08

”Pim-Pim” erbjöd sig i går att ställa upp i helgens Davis Cup-match mot Israel. Men fick nobben av kapten Mats Wilander. - Det kändes minst sagt lite konstigt, säger Joachim ”Pim-Pim” Johansson till SvD.

Den 26-årige kanonservaren från Södertälje ringde på förmiddagen upp Svenska tennisförbundets sportchef Mikael Stripple och förklarade att han var beredd att konkurrera om en plats i laget.

- Sen hoppade jag in i bilen och började köra mot Malmö. Med tanke på skadeläget i laget kunde jag ju inte drömma om att de skulle säga nej till en spelare, säger ”Pim-Pim”.

Då han hunnit till Värnamo fick ”Pim-Pim” tag på Mats Wilander.

- Han förklarade att det fanns sex spelare på plats som kan spela matchen och att jag inte behövdes. Så då var det bara för mig att vända om efter tre och en halv timmes körning.

Wilander:

- Pim-Pim"_ har inte spelat på en vecka och med bara ett par dagar kvar till matchen kändes det för sent att ta in honom.

Hur tolkar du ”Pim-Pims” samtal?

- Som att han var spelsugen och kände sig spelklar. Men jag tror inte att någon spelare i hans situation klarat att gå in och spela efter bara två dagars träning. I vilket fall som helst hade det varit en för stor risk, säger DC-kaptenen.

För en tid sedan förklarade ”Pim-Pim” att han inte var redo för fem set och därför inte skulle spela matchen mot Israel – vad gör att du plötsligt är spelklar?

- Att jag kände mig i bra form då jag förra veckan spelade en turnering i Frankrike. Sen blev jag sjuk där men jag är frisk igen och har knappast tappat något på de där dagarna. Därför ville jag åka till Malmö för att bidra med något till laget.

Men du lämnade återbud till den här veckans Challengerturnering i Bergamo – hur skulle du då orka Davis Cup?

- Det är väldig skillnad. I Bergamo handlar det om en turnering under en hel vecka medan det i Davis Cup är bara några dagar. Jag hade kanske kunnat spela dubbel och varit ett alternativ till en singel sista dagen om det behövts.

Att Mats Wilander nobbade ”Pim-Pims” erbjudande kan sesa som en tydlig fingervisning om att åtminstone Thomas Johansson är redo för spel, eventuellt även Andreas Vinciguerra.

I annat fall spelar Wilander ett högt spel. Oprövade Björn Rehnquist och Daniel Berta är nu nominerade i singel och om de håller sina platser även efter torsdagens lottning (då laget får ändras på två punkter) får DC-kaptenen svårt att förklara hur han kunde rata ”Pim-Pim”.

- Jag säger inte att jag absolut skulle ta en plats i laget men jag ville i alla fall slåss om en plats.

Förbannad?

”Pim-Pim” dröjer med svaret.

- Förvånad.

It seems like ToJo will play but I still don't understand why Wilander said no to Pim Pim, it's not like we have anyone better than him.

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

From what i remember , Pim Pim criticized Wilander pretty hard after the Olympics for his (lack of) coaching. I think Wilander don´t get along well with Pim Pim.

That it is to risky to play pim pim is pure BS from Nyström and Wille. Pim Pim would eat both Berta and Rehnqvist for breakfast. I don´t think Vinci would have a chance against pim pim either. The tie will be played on Taraflex and i reckon pim pim would score something like 25 aces in a match and , well,, Wilander made a big mistake today!

They need both Pim Pim & Tojo if they are to be remotely any serious threat in the DC.

Good specialist doubles players in Aspelin and Lindstedt. Tojo is a solid doubles player himself. Won silver with Aspelin in Beijing.

Harsh on Rehnquist and Berta if both players were to come in. But perhaps if it does down to a dead rubber one of them can get a game.

That's such rubbish. I don't know who Vinci is as my knowledge of Swedish tennis is slim to none (except for Pim Pim). I want to see him play again...is that too much to ask?

Pim Pims problems with injuries is nothing compared to Vinciguerras, so it's a big risk playing with him
