I hope so! We gave Mats about 20 letters. I cant describe how lovely Mats was. Honestly, if I was born about 15 years earlier, I think he'd have been a favourite of mine He seemed really happy to see that Magnus still had heaps of support

I loved Mats when he was playing.

I also love the brotherhood between the Swedish players. In the glory days they would go to each other's matches and cheer. It's not quite the same now, but I still feel them all cheering each other's successes. You don't see any public jealousy or backbiting. It's a tribute to their system really.

hehe... I only became interested in tennis around 2000/2001 so the only examples of going to each others matches:

2003: Vinciguerra cheering on PimPim in a qualifying match at Aus Open.
2004 Adidas: Jonas, and Asa sitting in between two Swedish matches (pimpim vs ?, and Enqvist vs ?). It was pretty cute actually... Jonas kept turning around to see how the different guys were doing, and when Johansson finished, Jonas went to the side of Thomas' match, and was signing things for little kids! sweeeet!! hehe
2004 Aus Open: Johan Landsberg and Robin Soderling cheering on Simon Aspelin.
Simon Aspelin cheering on Robin Söderling vs Escude.

Just a few sweet little stories on why the Swedes are so endearing.
You're so right though, my friend posted an article on an interview with jonas... referring to the pat cashhilippoussis debate. "We'd never do that to our own"-JB. Awesome article

Now... if only I can see Magnus on the side of a Jonas match. I just want him to at least be fit to travel Kom igen Magnus!

Yeah, I read those quotes.

They've been a very loyal group even as the membership has changed. Tompa was very supportive of Pim Pim at Memphis.

Btw, LOVED the story that Pim Pim told about his serve looking like his father's serve.

It's great to know that there's many more people that like the Swedish players for that, you know, their loyalty to each other, their good relationship, etc. I thought I was the only one to see that....but I was wrong.

I always liked to see the Swedish at Düsseldorf, you know, they all seem so nice and so outgoing at least with each other.....too bad they won't be there this year (it's not that I'm going, nope....I'm very far from there, je je, but it's just that by the pics you can also see how is their relationship, even on the kind of parties)

I think that's why it's so great to follow the Swedes. They are such fine characters. It seems like there are spats among all the players of other countries, but the Swedes pull together.

I'm hoping that some of that happens in the U.S. now. This young group of players seem to get along very well right now.

I've been following Swedish players since Bjorn Borg. It's been a little downturn for a couple of years now, but it is so great to see people like Mats getting deeply involved in tennis. Stefan has even stopped being reclusive... although I understand completely why he just wanted to be private for awhile... and he's back as a tournament director and working with young people. It's such a great tradition, it would be a shame to let it lapse.

Star, I agree that the Swedes are very likeable persons and make a great team together. But I can´t see that there are "spats" between all other players. I live near Düsseldorf so I´m able to read all the gossip from the World Team Cup in the newspaper and it seems that almost every team has a great time together there (maybe except the german team - they lack of team spirit even at home). And you can see players from many countries watching and supporting each other at tournaments (especially the french players).

Yeah. I agree the French players seem to get along well.

The British players... Well, Henman and Rusedski that is... have spats. The Argentine players seem to have spats. The U.S. players in the past have had hard feelings.

I'm not saying that the teams can't get along at times. Even the Australian team gets along like a house afire at times. But there are spats among them too.

But I stick to my opinion that the Swedes are SPECIAL.

Totally agree with you, Star.

I can't explain what is it, but you definitely can perceive that their relationship with each other is not as the players from other countries.
