Former top 10 player and US Open semifinalist Joachim Johansson of Sweden qualified for the If Stockholm Open main draw.
After receiving a wildcard from the tournament director, Johansson won three qualifying rounds, including a 6-1, 6-2 win over Damir Dzumhur on Monday.
Though he officially retired in 2008 due to shoulder problems, Johansson has played at the Stockholm ATP tournament in recent years. His last appearance was in 2009 where he lost in the quarterfinals to Thomasz Bellucci.
Johansson won three ATP singles titles and achieved a career high ranking of No. 9 in the world back in 2005. His best result at a major was at the 2004 US Open. That year he upset then defending champion Andy Roddick in five sets to reach the semifinals.
Johansson will next face Alejandro Falla in the first round.
