Before the ATP World Tour Finals Championship match between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, Stefan Edberg was invited by BBC to preview the final showdown (that would also award the year-end number 1 spot for 2016) in the studio with Sue Barker and Tim Henman.
The Swede analysed both players' chances and the meaning of being at the top of the ranking at the end of the season, especially in such an important occasion: in fact, it was the first time in the history of men's tennis that the year-end ranking leader was decided in the last match of the season between the two contenders.
Stefan also picked his favourite and recalled something from his past at the Masters/ATP Finals, an event he won in 1989, beating Boris Becker in the final.
We are delighted to offer you the clip of Stefan's introduction from the BBC website.
