Stefan Edberg confirmed that he would take part of the “Champions Trophy” at the Gerry Weber Open on June, 10th 2012.
This will be his very first participation at the tournament. He’ll be playing mixed doubles on grass beside Andrea Petkovic and against another famous team: Michael Stich and Steffi Graf. “I heard so many positive things about this tournament, and I’m very happy to finally have the opportunity to play there”. He added with a wink towards Michael Stich: “I have a revenge to take”. He was talking about the 1991 semi-final in Wimbledon as he was beaten by the German in four sets 4:6, 7:6, 7:6, 7:6.
Ralf Weber, the tournament director, is very proud to welcome Stefan in Halle. “He has always been very popular and a model of sportsmanship all over the world. It’s an honor to celebrate the 20th anniversary of our tournament with him”.
Match at 3.00 pm on June 10th, 2012.
Tickets from 24 Euros to 120 Euros.
