Mats Wilander considers Stefan Edberg for Swedish DC-team

http://www.aftonbladet.se/sportblade...icle4243272.ab

Mats Wilanders says Stefan Edberg would be an option in the DC tie against Israel. "On a fast indoor court, I am positive he would win against Israel's no 2."

Edberg himself said he was flattered but that his participation was unlikely. Wilander hasn't asked Edberg yet, he first wants to see how Thomas Johansson's comeback is going.

Given that PimPim and T Johansson can't play (Dumbo might recover from surgery just in time), Mats Wilander does not have many options. Ryderstedt and Eleskovic aren't in good form and Rehnqvist is a nerve wreck. Having seen Edberg play recently in Royal Albert Hall, I am not convinced he is a better choice than Rehnqvist.

Re: Mats Wilander considers Stefan Edberg for Swedish DC-team

great little publicity stunt by mats. Awareness of the tie has probably increased by about 500%. Should be good for ticket sales.

maybe wilander should play as well and while he's at it anders jarryd could play in the doubles and maybe bjorn gorg could be tempted into making a comeback

Maybe if they play the uk then edberg might have a chance against Greg Rusedski and Henman?

Re: Mats Wilander considers Stefan Edberg for Swedish DC-team

Stefan Could be great to see him back... I still remember how he whipped Moyà out of the court in three sets... in Roland Garros
Of course, Moyà wasn't the player he would become later, but yet

Carlos, Tommy, Rafa, Feli, Nicolás, Marcel
Rainer, Radek, Benji Becker, Jarkko Nieminen, Melzer, Nalbandián, Tursunov, Starace, Djokovic, Youzhny
