 Joachim Johansson, the next big thing - Tennis - www.smh.com.au
Johansson, 22, is the rising star on the men's circuit, climbing 101 places in the rankings last year and making the semi-finals of the US Open.
Johansson's performance at the US Open was part of a run that saw him reach the quarter-finals or better of the last six tournaments in which he competed in 2004, and the past week's success in Adelaide extended that sequence to seven and brought him his second ATP title.
Johansson would not be drawn into making predictions about how he would fare at Melbourne Park, saying only that he was hopeful of "winning a few matches", but he said was confident that in the long term he could build on his meteoric rise.
