Stefan Edberg pictured in Via Veneto in Rome, with journalist G.B. Olivero
Yesterday, at lunch time, G.B. Olivero, a journalist of Italian main sports daily paper "La Gazzetta dello Sport", posted a photo with Edberg taken in Via Veneto, one of the streets of the centre that made Rome popular in the '60s for the film "La Dolce Vita". Stefan had his first practice session with Roger Federer in the early afternoon on a very crowded side-court at the Foro Italico. Federer's sparring partner for the occasion was Italian veteran and Roger's good friend Potito Starace. Federer starts his tournament tomorrow playing Frenchman Jeremy Chardy.
In this video you can see Roger trying (and missing...) a tweener, for the joy of the audience.
