A beautiful player. A beautiful man. A beautiful person.

In my mind, Stefan combined all that was good more than anyone since Arthur Ashe.

Re: Stefan Edberg: A Champion reflects

I had forgotten that little skip Edberg always took after hitting a winning volley. Nice.

Nice to have his opinion on that.

That's surely true. But I don't really agree with him on saying it goes in cycle though I wish he was right. There's been S&V'ers in the 00's than in the 90's; less in the 90's than in the 80's; less in the 80's than in the 70's and less in the 70's than in the 60's.


And I don't think it's disappeared either (the best no longer do it, that's all).
