Edberg would make a great coach for Roger Federer.

Stefan rules. He would win so much more slams if he played now.

Re: Stefan Edberg: A Champion reflects

Thanks, Eden, for the wonderful interview.

Edberg was simply magnificent and a joy to watch. The 1991 U.S. Open final, where Stefan put on a serve and volley clinic as he demolished Courier, remains one of my all-time favorite matches.

His backhand volley is the most beautiful shot the game has seen.

Re: Stefan Edberg: A Champion reflects

Not a fan of the guy, but he was a champion.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Stefan Edberg: A Champion reflects

Always nice to read about Edberg, my first favorite tennis player.
Man, those good old times when my family was rooting for Becker and me jumping with joy when Edberg won against him.

"This is not about class, colour or races,
let’s get around and see different places,
put a smile on those distant faces,
wipe away your sorrow with no traces."


All the best to the members of the FedererExpress
