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.

This all serve mug should just retire.
That's a bit harsh, isn't it. But yeah, Johansson is one of those guys who should think long and hard whether it's all worth it. There are other interesting things in life besides tennis. I mean, he is still young enough to do something else with his life. We all must accept our limitations, right now it seems Pim Pim is hitting his head against the wall.

well...this is just what i think about the guy :
in tennis(or other sport) there is two things which are very close related with injuries and in a very high level they cant be learn
(there like natural qualities)
1- how you move.
look federer, the guy sometimes not even sweat
2- how much damage you can take.
it comes with your genes

pimpim seems like he dont have enough of one of those,
the man is fuck up.

He's quite the underwear model though, he'll have no problems securing another job. :p

But honestly, I wish him all the best and hope that he makes rational decisions regarding his future.

No capital letters. Here we have a pure newbie, ladies and gentlemen.

His qualities proceed better than Federer in some ways.

His qualities made a grand slam semifinal.

PimPim, just go for it!! You can always play a few points and retire, it´s not like you haven´t done that before!! It´s nice and warm there, play a couple of points, collect the cash, and hit the beach!!

What are you talking about? It's not about the qualities. It's pretty obvious now that Johansson's body can't take it. It's likely that he won't be able to play the full schedule. It's more like 1 month play followed by 10 months recovery. Sure, when he plays his best he can be a threat. But that's not enough. It's time to have a few pints of Pripps and move on!

Even without the capitals, his post made a lot more sense than yours. Of course, you are not a newbie.
