"People always want autographs, I just wonder what they do with them. When I was 11, Jens and Erwin Velasquez, the world freestyle Frisbee champions, came to Vastervik to play an exhibition, and I waited in line for their autographs. Actually, I've still got them" - Stefan Edberg on tennis fans. Read the article

Edberg and Järryd defeated in Båstad doubles exhibition

Stefan Edberg and Anders Järryd were defeated 6-3 by Dustin Brown and Tommy Haas in the one-set doubles exhibition in Båstad that marked Stefan's return to played tennis after more than three years.

The challenge between Sweden and the Rest of Europe ended on 1-1, since the team Wilander/Pernfors had defeated Frenchmen Forget/Pioline 6-4 on Monday.

Unfortunately, the event wasn't televised and there's no video of Stefan's performance available on Youtube or anywhere else for the moment.

Boris Becker, who was also supposed to take part in the celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the Swedish Open and appear during the exhibition as coach of the German team, wasn't in Båstad instead and was replaced on the bench of the Germans by Ilie Nastase.

Earlier today, the Facebook page of the Swedish Open shared some fantastic high-definition pictures of the exhibition. Some others were kindly shared by Birte P. (@Sommarsverige on Twitter).
