Last Saturday, Boris Becker conceeded the German media one of his rare interviews since the start of his coaching relationship with Novak Djokovic and talked, among other things, also about the Edberg-Federer duo.
According to the youngest ever winner of the Championships, Federer, who is just one win away from equalizing the German's 71 Wimbledon matches won, has better chances than in the last two years. "His form has been already good all the season and, of all the players, he has got the most natural game for grass."
Becker said that even though Federer has nothing left to prove, "he's still not satisfied with his 17 Major record" and hired Stefan Edberg as an incentive. "But he doesn't need to start winning Majors again, I say from my perspective..."
