Stefan Edberg and Roger Federer at Wimbledon 2015 (© ubitennis.com)
Roger Federer beat Stan Wawrinka 7-5, 6-3, 1-6, 4-6, 6-3 in the first semifinal of the Australian Open and will compete for a fifth title in Melbourne.
The Swiss, coming back to the Tour in 2017 after a six month break from tennis, will make his first appearance in an Australian Open final since 2010 and will be seeking his 18th Grand Slam crown, a goal in which his former coach Stefan Edberg has never stopped believing.
Interviewed last October by Linus Sunnervik in Stockholm, Stefan had remained still on the motto he had been repeating several times in his two years as Roger’s mentor. Never count Federer out, he still has a chance.
