According to a Swedish newspaper (Svenska Dagbladet) Thomas Johansson has been asked to come out of retirement to play Sweden’s Davis Cup playoffs against Italy in September.

“It’s tempting, but I don’t know if my body can go five sets,” said Johansson, but did add he was “training hard.”

Injuries and retirements have led Sweden to make a habit of luring back former players. Both Joachim Johansson and Andrea Vinciguerra have recently served on the squad, and former captain Mats Wilander even made an unsuccessful pitch to long-retired Stefan Edberg a couple of years ago.
