Johansson out of AO 2008
Joachim Johansson will miss the Australian Open next month because of a lack of practice after recovering from a six-week illness.
"Of course it's sad, but travelling to Melbourne and playing five-set matches with so little preparation does not feel meaningful," Johansson said.
"After talking to (coach) Johan Landsberg we decided that it would be better to practice one additional month."
Johansson, who reached a career-high ranking of ninth in 2005, was limited to three ATP tournaments this year because of a right shoulder injury.
Johansson underwent surgery in February and did not return until September, when he lost to Andy Roddick in the Davis Cup semifinals between Sweden and the United States.
In October, Johansson withdrew from the second round at the Stockholm Open because of illness.
