"Once you've been a champion here, you should leave like one. You belong to this club once you've won here, so it's not like I'm leaving forever" - Stefan Edberg after his defeat to Mikael Tillstrom in his last match at Wimbledon in 1996. Read the article

Wilander - Edberg, Swedish semifinal

An article from: La Repubblica

NEW YORK. There won't be an all Czech final in the men's singles as last year, when Lendl beat Mecir in three sets. This time there'll be at least a Swede in the final, either Stefan Edberg or Mats Wilander. The last Swede to reach this stage was Bjorn Borg, who lost to McEnroe in '81 his fourth final in the Us Open, a really bewitched tournament for him.

Edberg easily beat in the quarter finals the Indian Krishnan after a match (6-2 6-2 6-2) with little emotion. Wilander, in the other quarter, has finally managed to get rid of his bugbear, the Slovakian Mecir. The Swede won in four sets (three hs and 37 minutes).

In the doubles final Edberg-Jarryd beat Flach-Seguso 7-6, 6-2, 4-6, 5-7, 7-6.
