Stefan Edberg interviewed by SvT after the Wimbledon semifinal between Roger Federer and Andy Murray
Roger Federer's Swedish coach Stefan Edberg was impressed by his protégé in today's semifinal against Andy Murray. "It is perhaps the best I've seen," praises Edberg to SVT Sport.
A tight match on paper ended with a clear 3-0 in sets to Federer's favor. Andy Murray played quite well, despite figures, but Roger Federer was simply too good. Afterwards, it was not totally unexpected that SVT would meet a pleased Stefan Edberg.
- I've been with him for two years and it is perhaps the best I've seen, but he played like at the London Masters. Right now he plays really good and that's what he needs to do, said Edberg looking ahead to Sunday's final - where world number one Novak Djokovic awaits.
- Both have a good handle on each other, Novak knows how Roger plays and vice versa. But he (Federer) has definitely got a chance, if he plays like he did today, he has got a very good chance.
