Memo(s)

   He was quickly touted as the only Swede who could follow in the footsteps of Bj√∂rn Borg, Mats Wilander and Stefan Edberg, and was ranked as high as World No. 4 (which he attained in 1999) in the ATP Rankings, reaching the final of the Australian Open the same year
Throughout his career, Enqvist finished a year ranked in the top 10 four times and won at least one ATP title for six consecutive years. In 1998 he underwent surgery in Stockholm to remove a small piece of bone from his right foot and had surgery on his right shoulder to repair a repetitive strain injury. Despite his surgeries, Enqvist posted some impressive victories, including wins over Pete Sampras, Juan Carlos Ferrero, and Andy Roddick.

Enqvist won a total of 19 singles titles, the biggest being ATP Masters Series titles at Paris (1996), Stuttgart (1999) and Cincinnati (2000). He also won one doubles title.

His best showing at a Grand Slam event was in 1999, when he lost the Australian Open final to Yevgeny Kafelnikov of Russia. He also reached the quarter-finals of Wimbledon in 2001 and at the 1996 Australian Open.

Enqvist was a force on the Swedish Davis Cup team. In 1998, he helped Sweden reach the finals of the Davis Cup for the fourth time in five years.

He currently works as captain for the Swedish Davis Cup team and as an expert commentator for Eurosport Sweden.
