Fredriksson never made it past the first round of a Grand Slam singles draw.[2] The closest he came was in the 1997 French Open when he lost a five set match to Frédéric Fontang.[2] In the doubles however he reached the second round in his only attempt, at the 1997 US Open, with Tom Vanhoudt as his partner.[2]

He was twice a singles quarter-finalist on the ATP Tour, in the 1996 Stockholm Open and at the Swedish Open in 1997.[2] At Singapore in 1996 he had a win over world number 26 and third seed Paul Haarhuis.[2]

The Swede was more successful as a doubles career player, finishing runner-up at two events.[2]
