Interview with Stefan Edberg from German tennismagazin
In the May issue of German tennismagazin, there's an interesting interview with Stefan Edberg, released last month just before the Berenberg Bank Classic exhibition between the Swede former world number one and Goran Ivanisevic.

There are many nice aspects in this interview that I translated into English for my tribute to Edberg website, STE...fans.

Maybe the most curious is the part where Stefan talks about his first meeting with Bjorn Borg, when he was just a promising kid in Sweden. But it's also nice to know that he has worked on his forehand, notoriously his weaker side, since his retirement from the tour... Have you ever wondered how Christopher, Stefan's sixteen year old son, plays tennis? There's a question about that, too. And if you're going to London for the Championships this year, know that you might be lucky enough to meet Edberg, because, like last year, he'll be there again!

Edberg. First tennis match I ever saw was between the two, and was rooting big time for Edberg (I think he won). Came to appreciate Becker later too.

Thanks for sharing btw.

RE: Interview with Stefan Edberg from German tennismagazin
For reasons of age (after all I'm only 33...), I enjoyed a lot his 1992 triumph at the US Open, which I consider one of the greatest moments in tennis, and not only, in the last thirty years. Coming back from a break down in the fifth set in three consecutive matches and then win the championship in the US, as the only European among three top level Americans, was just extraordinary. Nobody could ever predict that would be his very last major success, a new dimension in his life was coming up...

Thank you everybody for participating in the topic discussion Clap
