Thomas is a former Australian Open finalist who reached a career-high ranking of number four in the world. For nearly a decade he was one of the most consistent players on the ATP Tour, finishing the year in the world’s top ten on four separate occasions thanks to his metronomic and laser-like baseline hitting.
He began playing tennis at the age of five at the local Farsta Tennis Klubb in Stockholm. After becoming the number one junior in Sweden, Thomas went on to win both the junior Australian Open and Wimbledon titles before turning professional in 1991.
As well as the 19 ATP Tour titles he won during his 15 years as a professional tennis player, Thomas also helped the Swedish team reach the final of the Davis Cup in 1996 and 1997. Undoubtedly the high point of Thomas’ career came in 1999 when he reached the final of the Australian Open. Retired since 2006, Thomas now lives in Monte Carlo.
