Torsten Johansson (11 April 1920 – 14 May 2004) was a Swedish tennis player who set a record by shutting out two opponents at Wimbledon in 1947, Brian Royds and Pierre Geeland De Merxem. A 6–0, 6–0, 6–0 victory is an extreme tennis rarity. Johansson played for the Royal Tennis Club of Stockholm in the early 1940s and won more than 100 national titles for the club, a record that still stands. He and Lennart Bergelin, coach of Bjorn Borg, turned Sweden into a tennis power after World War II. In 1956, he was a Finalist to Ian Vermaak at the South African Championships. Johansson played Davis Cup tennis for 16 years, retiring after the 1962 series against Mexico. He then became a world-wide distributor of Tretorn Shoes from Sweden and established an outlet in the United States with Bancroft Sporting Goods. He was a World Class Player in Senior Tournaments until his death. In 2005, he was inducted into the Swedish Tennis Hall of Fame.
