Stefan Edberg during last year's edition of the Kings of Tennis
For the first time since the event was established in 2012, this year Stefan Edberg will miss the Kings of Tennis, the Swedish stage of the ATP Champions Tour, that will be held in Stockholm from March 18th to 20th.
With less than a month left to the tournament, the player field of six legends is already complete.
14-time Grand Slam champion Pete Sampras made the organizers happy, accepting to play at the Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre for the first time, but the crowd will surely miss the presence of Stefan Edberg, winner of the event in 2013 and runner-up last year.
The reason for Stefan's default is probably the date of the Stockholm Champions tournament that overlaps with the first ATP 1000 Masters in Indian Wells, where Stefan will follow the action of his pupil Roger Federer.
