During the final days of the Cincinnati Western and Southern Open, many Twitter users dedicated their posts to Stefan Edberg, appreciating his influence on the new aggressive style of play Federer has been showing since the start of their partnership and that has been earning the Swiss great success in spite of the fact he is now one of the old guys of the Tour.
Below you can find a collection of the best Fedberg tweets posted in the last few days, that also prove how Stefan Edberg's status as coach is growing more and more. Let's hope this can help keep Stefan on the Tour, even beyond Federer, to start a revival of attacking tennis in the new generations of players. (mc).

Reivindicar a Stefan Edberg. Lo que ha conseguido transmitir a Federer en estos dos años me parece asombroso. Vaya maestro.— Alejandro Arroyo (@Arroyer) August 23, 2015

The way Federer has transformed & improved his game w/ Edberg is incredible. It might be time for Rafa to make a change in his game as well.— Parsa (@Smith_J1989) August 23, 2015
You know how we can't see Edberg courtside. I'm thinking, he may have actually possessed Federer. 7-6, 2-0.— DavidLaw (@DavidLawTennis) August 23, 2015
