Sweden's Thomas Johansson to retire

Sweden's Thomas Johansson to retireStockholm -  Thomas Johansson, the last Swedish tennis player to win a Grand Slam title, has decided to retire from professional tennis, he said in an interview published Friday.

Johansson, 34, told the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper that returning to form from a foot injury sustained last year would be too much.

"The foot feels better but in order to make a serious comeback I would have to train harder than I ever have. I am not prepared to do that," he said.

The foot injury was one of several injuries that impacted his 15-year career.
