He not only should have won wimby more often but other slams as well.

best slam he won was US Open 1992 the way he came back from a break down in 5th to best Krajicek, Lendl and then Chang was amazing

1991 US Open ........ that was totally awesome the way he splattered Courier in the final, never seen him play better.

so many memories and so long ago.

1996 Davis Cup final.......... sad ending twisting his ankle in 1st rubber

Stefan!
I got interested in tennis after Stefan won all his GS titles...but he was my first favorite men's player. Such a class act.

Director of the Stockholm tourney?

I think he is the chief or one of the chiefs of the Stockholm open.

I guess he must do other things as well like playing golf maybe.

Stefan Edberg was just playing some exhibition match near where I was this weekend...on Cape Cod in Massachusetts, USA. July 17th.

I think Gambill, Laver and Courier were there too.

I'll post again when I find the flier for it.
