Johansson Set For Stockholm Comeback

Welcome back Joachim Johansson.

Six years after his last ATP appearance, the 37-year-old Swede announced he's playing pre-qualifying at the Stockholm Open.

"Playing wise I was in much better shape 1 week ago compared to 2, 5 weeks ago," Johansson wrote in a Facebook post. "Body feels like 37 and that I stopped 8 years ago 🙈 Last few days I have had to rest to try to recover my body from this 'wake-up-call.'

"Hoping to be ready body wise tomorrow to able to enjoy this tournament as much as possible."

The comeback comes six years after Johansson qualified for Stockholm and reached the round of 16 bowing to then world No. 11 Milos Raonic 6-2, 7-6(3).

Fans will remember Johansson as one of the biggest serves in tennis before his career was cut short by shoulder issues.

The 6'6" Swede won three career titles and reached a career-high rank of No. 9 back in 2005. Johansson fired 51 aces in a 2005 Australian Open fourth-round loss to Andre Agassi.
