Thomas Johansson

Thomas Johansson entered professional tennis in 1993. Thomas had 357 wins, against 296 losses. He has won nine tournaments, among which the 2002 Australian Open and the 1999 Canada Open stand out, where he also reached a semifinal at Wimbledon 2005, defeated by Andy Roddick.

However, over the years he has reached an enviable level of competitiveness, which however suffered a collapse in 2006 due to an unfortunate accident: during a training session with Mario Ancic, a ball hit him in the right eye causing retinal detachment and a consequent removal from the camps for three months. Following a return to low-profile activities, on June 12, 2009 he announced his retirement from tennis due to physical problems that would hardly have allowed him to return to high levels.

The former tennis player began his career as a coach, following among others Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Sakkari, Filip Krajinovic and David Goffin.
