Brewster, Mass. – Two years after fellow countryman Mats Wilander was inducted in the 2002 ceremony, six-time Grand Slam singles champion Stefan Edberg of Sweden became one of three newly-inducted members of the 2004 class at the International Tennis Hall of Fame, joining a list of distinguished legends of the game.
Following the induction, Edberg and his family took the short ride from scenic Newport, Rhode Island to the lovely coastal haven of Brewster, Massachusetts to celebrate the career milestone and to participate in the fourth annual Adidas Tennis Smash benefiting the Tim & Tom Gullikson Foundation.
Featuring a who’s who of past and present tennis stars, this year’s benefit included: Martina Hingis, Rod Laver, Tom Gullikson, Stan Smith, Carly Gullickson, Wendy Turnbull, Jenny Hopkins, Gardner Molloy, Francois Durr, Anke Huber, Pancho Segura, and the newest member of the International Tennis Hall of Fame.
