Federer's words of praise for Edberg after Cincinnati title

In the media conference following his seventh title at the Western and Southern Open in Cincinnati, Roger Federer paid homage to coach Stefan Edberg for the wonderful results of the last year and a half, but refused to relate his improvements on the backhand side to the  Swede's advise.

"Honestly, I think I would like to give Stefan a lot of credit and he has helped me in a big way, - said the Swiss. - But I think the backhand is better since I also have a bigger racquet head. I really think that was the change."

No doubt, instead, about Edberg's influence on his new offensive attitude: "Of course Stefan wants me to play up in the court and move in as much as possible but in a clever way," added the Swiss.

In Federer's words, Stefan Edberg will arrive in New York "in the next few days", which lets imagine the duo will have an early preparation to the last Major of the season, like in Wimbledon, where Edberg arrived on the Wednesday before the start of the tournament. (mc)
