During a Centre Court ceremony at the Rexall Centre yesterday night, Stefan Edberg was officially elected into the Rogers Cup Hall of Fame.
In his speech he praised the organization of the tournament, explained how important tennis was and still is in his life and thanked the fans for supporting him throughout his career.

Roger Federer also congratulated Stefan with a video message that was broadcasted on the giant screen, regretting he wasn't able to reach his idol's level of serve & volley style.

In other video messages, Thomas Johansson explained what Stefan meant for Swedish tennis, along with Bjorn Borg and Mats Wilander, while Daniel Nestor recalled the legendary Davis Cup tie of 1992, in which he, as an unknown 19 year old guy, managed to defeat Edberg, back then world number one.

Unseen on the internet so far, here's the entire video of the ceremony, with Stefan's speech and no commentary but the original audio.
