General news

A triple wish for the new year

A little bit later than usual, here’s our Happy New Year post, as we start our first season after the end of the partnership between Stefan Edberg and Roger Federer.

We had taken a short break from the website, like we had done several times last year, in the periods when our famous duo was away from the spotlight. These two years of Team Fedberg have been a fantastic moment of growth for our project, but also a very demanding experience for us, who were used to running a website connected to current news to a much smaller extent. Edberg was tired of traveling, we were overwhelmed by fresh information, as we were trained to look back to the past, rather than to follow the present.

We have done our best to keep you up-to-date with anything done by Edberg and Federer together and with anything said on them on the web. We have gone deep into the news, creating specials, videos, photo stories and the outcome of this effort is now an almost day-by-day diary of these two years, collecting more than 200 posts that are meant to become even more.

 

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree with the Tennis Legends

The owners of the Facebook page Happy Slam Tennis decided to wish their followers a very special Merry Christmas this year.

They created this video in which the elf versions of Stefan Edberg, Pete Sampras, Boris Becker, Andre Agassi and Pat Rafter play and sing "Rocking around the Christmas Tree".

In the clip, Stefan plays the contrabass along with Pete Sampras and closes the song with a vocal solo that will make you cry with laughter.

Who wouldn't love such a rock band to play for real?

Enjoy your Christmas holiday!

 

Alan Mills pays tribute to Stefan Edberg's sportsmanship

Former Wimbledon referee and supervisor Alan Mills officially retired from tennis this month, with a ceremony at the Royal Albert Hall during the London stage of the ATP Champions Tour.

On that occasion, he was a special guest of The Tennis Podcast for their final release of 2015.

Presenter David Law asked him to single out a player that impressed him the most throughout his long journey in the world of tennis. Mr Mills chose Rod Laver as a player to watch and Stefan Edberg and Pat Rafter for their attitude.

In particular, he wanted to recall an episode concerning Stefan, happened 25 years ago in Miami, that once again reminds us all of how great a sportsman the Swede is.

Stefan Edberg was presented with an International Tennis Hall of Fame ring by Christopher Clouser, Chairman of the International Tennis Hall of Fame and Museum and Todd Martin, the CEO of the International Tennis Hall of Fame & Museum.

The ceremony underlined the Swede’s illustrious playing career, during which he recorded 806 wins, won 41 titles and attained number one in the Emirates ATP Rankings in both singles and doubles. The serve-and-volleyer reached the final of all four Grand Slam events, winning six in total. He defeated nemesis Boris Becker to capture the 1989 Barclays ATP World Tour Finals and finished runner-up to Andre Agassi the following year.

The London resident is now in the midst of a successful second career in tennis, coaching World No. 3 Roger Federer, who has already qualified for the semi-finals of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals by winning his first two round-robin matches in straight sets.

 

Playsight workshop at Södra Climate Arena

Some pictures from last October 28th, when the staff of the Israeli start-up Playsight was hosted by Stefan Edberg and Magnus Larsson at the Södra Climate Arena in Växiö for a demonstration with some members of the Ready Play Tennis Academy.

Back in 2013, the Climate Arena was one of the first facilities in the world to install the Smart Court technology for the analysis ot tennis data, an application that is becoming more and more helpful for coaches and players.
