"I have always just wanted to play good tennis, trying not to be different from what I was, I am. I've never tried to create an image of myself that doesn't correspond to the truth, a concern that many of today's players seem to have, instead" - Stefan Edberg on his personality. Read the interview

At the Us Open Edberg beaten by Krickstein

An article from: La Repubblica

NEW YORK. New surprise at the Us Open. After Noah, Becker and Mecir another of the top eight seeds of the tournament has gone out in Flushing Meadow.

In the fourth round Stefan Edberg, winner in Wimbledon, gave up at the fifth set against twenty-one year old American Aaron Krickstein, number twenty in the world ranking.

Krickstein, who was world number seven in 1985, is a real fifth set specialist. He had already beat the Swede in the first round in the tournament of Flushing Meadows in 1983 in a fifth set tie-break. "It was very windy - said Edberg - and papers flying on the court hid the ball. I lost concentration and a match I shouldn't have lost".
