Bio Rohlsson was a Swedish right-handed tennis player known especially for his efforts in Davis Cup doubles player along with Donald Schroeder.
He belonged to the Swedish elite tennis player from the late 1930s to the early 1950s. He won the period 1937-1953 a total of 27 Championship titles, including 5 in singles, 13 in doubles and nine in mixed doubles.

Rohlsson played an aggressive "slugger-like" tennis based on a heavy serve and volley game effectively. His career coincided with the period of the Second World War, why his ability to compete internationally were limited. Among other Swedish top players in the 1930s marked Donald Schroeder, Ingvar Garell and Curt Ostberg all of whom were older than Rohlsson. Along with these players participated Rohlsson including the first Swedish team in the 1936 newly established King's Cup tournament. Rohlsson continued to play at the top level throughout the 1940s, while younger players like Torsten Johansson, Staffan Stockenberg and Lennart Berg Elin took over in the Swedish elite. His first double titles (1937-1943) won Rohlsson along with Garell and Östberg, and the last (1952-53) with Johansson.

During the 1930s, last year, in 1938 and 1939, did Rohlsson their first appearances as Davis Cup player. He then played 8 games of which four were double along with Donald Schroeder. The last meeting was played in May 1939 in Berlin between Sweden and Germany, only three months before the outbreak of war. Rohlsson and Schroeder managed to win the Swedish team's only win by the doubles defeat the German couple Henner Henkel / Georg von Metaxa 6-2 1-6 6-3 6-3.

The season 1952 did Rohlsson his last two appearances in the Davis Cup, then only that doubles player along with Torsten Johansson. The pair won one of the two matches (victory over the Chilean pair Luis Ayala / Ricardo Balbiers 6-3, 2-6, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4).

Total Rohlsson played 10 games in the Swedish DC team and won five of them.
