Re: Best 5 Set Records
It was sad that he retired so early, but if his heart wasn't in it, then that was the best for him. If he played for another 3 years, then he might have won a US Open, I think he definitely could have won 2 more FOs.
He is truly respected and revered in Sweden and especially by Guga ( the bowing at the FO ceremony) and Roger worships him as well.
I mean if it wasn't him the world wouldn't have seen Edberg, Wilander or the other Swedish players. Tennis used to be a snobby, yuppie sport in Sweden until he came along, the success and the federation built excellent tennis centres throughout the country to inspire the next generation.
