Re: Stefan Edberg: A Champion reflects

He was my first tennis favourite. I remember being a fan of him after he won the Wimbeldon 90. I always rooted for him. I saw his match defeating Sampras in the US Open, defeating Chang on the way. The match against Stich in the Wimbeldon was cruel, he was supposed to win that match. But by then he already had a great legacy. His volleying was so immaculate. He was a pleasure to watch. A great Champion.

Thanks for the article. Edberg was a champion inside and outside the court. All my respects although I was not a big fan of him

Has there been a better back hand volley than Edberg's.. It was a thing of beauty.

"Tennis is in pretty good shape right now and Federer-Nadal have played some quality tennis matches. It's also nice to see (Novak) Djokovic playing well and up there."
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).

Re: Stefan Edberg: A Champion reflects

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