Can't remember his name: Which late 80s Swedish Pro am I thinking of?
 
It's driving me nuts, and I can't use Google coz I don't even remember his name.
Can anyone tell me, what was the name of the Swedish pro, played in the late 80s/early 90s...he had short brown hair, like a young schoolboy haircut, blue or hazel eyes, compact size maybe 5ft 10"...looked very much like Amos Mansdorf - compact, not too tall and definitely not blonde.

NO I'm not thinking of Pernfors/Gustaffsson/Gunnarsson/Lundgren/Wahlgren...I thought it may have been Mikael Tillstrom but the guy I'm thinking of would be mid-40s by now...anyone know? I think his surname may sound like Tillstrom or begin with a "T"

Edit: Not Kroon/Kulti either

Hendrik Sundstrom?

MAXXply 11-22-2012 01:35 AM

Not Sundstrom, not Simonsson, Svensson or Carlsson either. Definitely had shortish brown hair. Very boyish looking. Maybe "Tidemann' or something like that?

Magnus Tideman? you can google him:)

^^Just had a look, nope, not him either. Had a look here as well but he's not listed:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...tennis_players

D'oh! this is gonna drive me nutty for days. Thanks anyway :-) I remember seeing him play Wimbledon one year and gave a scare to a top seed.

problem is, itīs driving me nuts too now:) itīs not mikael tillstrom either?

MAXXply 11-22-2012 01:54 AM

^^ LOL sorry! No not Tillstrom. Wikipedia says he was born 1972. The player I'm thinking of would've been at least mid-20s when I saw him at Wimbledon c.1989-91 and not late teens as Tillstrom would have been at the time.

As I said, he looked boyish, like Amos Mansdorf in the face, and similar brown hair style.

treblings 11-22-2012 02:26 AM

thank god i have to go to work now, or i would think about it all day:)
Hans Simonsson, Tobias Svantesson, Jorgen Windahl???
actually nice to remember Windahl cause i saw him play and really liked his game

MAXXply 11-22-2012 02:33 AM

^^ Not those guys ... keep thinking through the day, maybe it might come in your lunchbreak :-)

Anders Jarryd?






boredone3456 11-22-2012 03:23 AM

Bergstrum? Holm? Bathman? Kroon?

I do not know if any of these guys fit the physical description but they all competed at Wimbledon during that time.

treblings 11-22-2012 03:25 AM

it could be ronnie bathman, lost to lendl in 89
hope somebody comes up with the right answer

boredone3456 11-22-2012 03:30 AM

If none of the names I mentioned are it try going to wikipedia and looking at the Wimbledon draws for those years. There were a lot of Swede's at that time and wiki has the draws. Or maybe you have done that already?
