The Swede Stefan Edberg won the Davis Cup four times in the course of his successful career and twice he took the decisive point in the final: in 1984 in Gothenburg with Anders Jarryd against the world's best doubles team for a long time Peter Fleming/John McEnroe, a year later in Munich against Michael Westphal.
«Switzerland has big chances to win»
If today the superstars are exposed to a completely different stress off court than during his active years, Federer's part-time coach is still happy that his protégé has returned this season as a full member into the team. «I was completely sure that he would play Davis Cup again, » said Edberg, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Canadian Open in Toronto on Tuesday.
In Edberg's flowering times, his team was made up by his doubles partner Jarryd and the other tenors Mats Wilander and Henrik Sundström. If the Swiss do not have the same density at the top, the blonde from Västervik is still confident: «Switzerland has a great chance of winning this year, because Roger and Stan Wawrinka play together and both desperately want to win it.»
