Born in Goteborg, Sweden, Johansson was introduced to tennis by her parents at the age of seven.

She played in five Tour main draws in 2007 and again made it to the second round as a wild card. However, she was eventually defeated by no. 13 seed Dementieva.

She also fell to Serena Williams in June during the second round at Roland Garros after leading 5-3 in the second set.

Johansson is a baseliner who prefers a right-handed (two-handed backhand) and clay as her best surface. She currently holds a career record of 198-143 in singles, zero career titles and a career-highest ranking of 81 which she recorded on October 2008. She holds a career record of 37-42 in doubles, with no career titles and a career highest record of 200 recorded on May 2008.
