Description:
Magnus Norman (born 30 May 1976 in Filipstad) is a retired Swedish professional tennis player who is best known for being the runner-up at the French Open in 2000 and for briefly being ranked World Number 2. He won 12 singles titles, including a Tennis Masters Series tournament in Rome, Italy.

Norman reached his career high ranking of World Number 2 on 12 June 2000. This ranking resulted from his success during the first half of the year: he reached the semifinals of the Australian Open, won the Rome Masters, beating Gustavo Kuerten of Brazil, and was the runner-up at the French Open, where Kuerten took revenge. His decline began late that year at the Sydney Olympics, when he lost in the third round to Frenchman Arnaud di Pasquale in straight sets (di Pasquale went on to win the bronze medal).

Norman underwent corrective surgery for a heart valve condition in 1998. He retired due to hip and knee injuries in 2004. Magnus is the former coach of Thomas Johansson and Robin Söderling. He is now running his own tennis academy called the .

Growing up he also played bandy.
