Pim-Pim retires again
A former No. 9 in the world and the US Open semifinalist, Joachim “Pim-Pim” Johansson , last week played a Futures event in Fällanden (Switzerland). In the first round he beat an unknown Croat – Mate Pavic 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-4 and withdrew from the tournament… Johansson said he is fit and injury free, but no longer passionate about tennis, adding “realized that I’m done with this.” It’s his second retirement, the 28-year-old Swede retired for the first time at the beginning of 2008 due to injuries. He changed his mind in the same year tough, since then he was playing only a couple tournaments each year. He will be remembered as one of the biggest servers, he is a record holder in “the most aces served in a four set match” – 51 aces (!) against Andre Agassi at the Australian Open 2005.
