The world number 3 beaten in his home soil by the Italian, who'll now find Meinecke
He beat Edberg in Stockholm
STOCKHOLM. Sensational victory by Paolo Canè who beat Stefan Edberg, in the second round of the Stockholm Open. "I was calm, he was very nervous instead, he had all the crowd upon him", stated the Italian player at the end.
The two players had met the last time in Seoul where Edberg had won in three sets, in a match in which Canè had also broken once his opponent to love.
In yesterday's match, after taking a break in the first set, won 6-4, the Swede gradually worsened his game and in the third set even lost his serve three times. 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 the final score for the Italian.
In the end Edberg, current number 3 in the world, and number 2 seed in the tournament, admitted his negative performance. "I never managed to get in the match.
I played too much recently". Edberg, who won, among the others, the Wimbledon tournament this year, confessed he reached a saturation point.
"He played with all he had, I didn't. I felt weak and, if you can't give everything, you can't win anymore in tennis. I didn't even feel home, in spite of the fans' support". These statements seem to anticipate a reduction of commitments for next season.
Canè obviously looked very satisfied after the victory. "I had nothing to lose and I played very relaxed".
