Edberg: "Djokovic won't step aside"

Stefan Edberg was interviewed by Espndeportes.com and gave his view on the change at the top of the men's ranking, with Novak Djokovic being passed by Andy Murray at world number 1.

"It was a little surprising that Andy reached No. 1 by the end of the year, but he had a great season and was playing great tennis lately," he said on the Scot.

"However, Djokovic will not step aside. His reign as world number one was great and he had a great year as well. But it's normal to see new people challenging him for the first place," added Stefan.

According to Espndeportes.com, Stefan will be at the ATP World Tour Finals, beginning next Sunday November 13th, but this will be quite complicated, as he had already signed for Richard Branson's Necker Cup on Necker Island from November 14th to 17th.

Stefan also commented on the O2 Arena event, that he has attended from 2013 to 2015, the last two seasons as coach of Roger Federer. "It is becoming one of the best tournaments to visit as a spectator. You do not have to deal with rain, you are guaranteed two big matches a day and everything is going very well," said Edberg. (mc)
