On Sunday there's the Wimbledon showdown between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. For Stefan Edberg is the second Grand Slam final as a coach of the Swiss. And the Swede believes in the title.
In 2014, Edberg made his debut in a Major final as Federer coach, but witnessed a bitter five-set defeat for his protégé against Novak Djokovic. A year later, he now comes for a revenge between the Swiss and the Serb. And Edberg is optimistic that this time Federer will succeed.
"We have made a few adjustments in his game with the team. He now plays more offensively and is clearly better than last year. And since he was already very close to it..." the Swede explains his confidence. Edberg sees Federer's serve as his biggest advantage. "If Roger serves like he has done so far, he has a very good chance."
Edberg's optimism has a positive effect on his nervous tension. "Last year it was difficult. Now I'm much more relaxed. The way he plays, I just have to be optimistic."
