Johanna Westerberg is a veteran of seven seasons on the Ladies European Tour, and today in the first round of the Ladies German Open she posted her career low, a 65.
Westerberg's career best finish on the LET are runners-up at the 2007 Finnair Masters and 2008 Turkish Ladies Open. She finished 22nd on the money list in '07, and was 36th in earning in 2008.
Johanna is getting a little help from her fiancee in Germany this week. That would be fellow Swede Joachim Johansson, who is caddying for her. Joachim Johansson ... does that name sound familiar? If you're a tennis fan, it surely does.
Johansson - whose nickname is "Pim Pim" - is a professional tennis player. And a pretty good one. He was a player on the rise in 2004 and 2005, reaching the semifinals at the 2004 U.S. Open, before shoulder injuries derailed his career. He's undergone a couple surgeries since then and played sporadically. But before the injuries, he peaked at No. 9 in the WTA world singles rankings.
Pim Pim (hey, when a guy is nicknamed Pim Pim, I say use the nickname) also holds the WTA tour record for most aces in one match - 51. That happened in the 2005 Australian Open against Andre Agassi. Pretty remarkable given that Agassi, along with Jimmy Connors, is generally regarded one of the two best service returners in tennis history.
According to the LET, Johanna and Pim Pim plan to get hitched next year.
