Happy Birthday, Stefan! I think his induction into the Hall of Fame was a nice birthday gift. :)

Ok, I know many people won't care, but I DO :)

I was born the same day that a great player was it too. :)

Well, the "only" difference is that I was born 21 years after him. :p

I feel like Edberg is "in the air" these days. I keep hearing his name and comparisons to him.

Well, Happy Birthday Stefan! :aparty:

Ahem... part of that was my (admittedly satirical) doing when I compared him to Schuettler recently...

I knew Eggy would show up to wish Stefan Edberg a happy birthday. :)

My favorite Edberg win was his great 1988 Wimbledon 4 set triumph over the heavily favored Boris Becker. :D And my most dissapointing match was his 1989 French Open final 5 set loss to Michael Chang. :sad:

I miss Stefan and his classy and classic serve and volley style so much. :( I hope Stefan had a wonderful birthday wherever he is. :D
