Formerly the Center Court at Roland Garros was filled with Swedish tennis players. When the French Open started last Sunday not a single Swedish men's player was in the tournament. - There's something we haven't done right in Swedish tennis, says coach Magnus Norman.
PARIS. A former Swedish world number one and a former Swedish world number two will fight for the title in Paris. Not as players but as as coaches. Stefan Edberg coaches world number four Roger Federer and Magnus Norman world number three Stanislas Wawrinka.
Both are equally disappointed that there are no Swedish men's players that are candidates to play in a Grand Slam. Not even to qualify to one.
- Results-wise and ranking-wise it is so bad that you know you're pretty close to the bottom, says Stefan Edberg.
