Stefan Edberg with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal at the 2006 French Open ceremony
Another nice memory of Edberg-Becker rivalry in Stefan's words was published two weeks ago by the Times Online.
Stefan Edberg can remember the feeling of elation and apprehension every time he played Boris Becker in a Wimbledon final. If his game was a beat off its best, Becker could roll right over him, but the understanding seemed to sharpen his own competitive senses. The Swede won two of their three successive finals on Centre Court and three of their four meetings in Grand Slams, against the prevailing trend which saw the German win 25 of their 35 career head-to-heads.

Stefan Edberg champion of the 1991 US Open
During US Open Stefan Edberg is going to look what is happening in Flushing Meadow. Two times the elegant serve and volley player from Västervik was able to raise the US Open cup towards the American sky.
After that someone thought that one could relabel it as well. So what could be more adequate than Edberg Sportmanship Award? And so it went on. Certainly, Stefan has enormous experience of tennis life on highest level and he never forgets how it was to play and win Grand Slam tournaments.

from Tennis Week
The man who was always certain of his direction on the court — moving forward and attacking the net — is equally comfortable in pursuing his own path on his own terms. On the final day of the camp, Edberg sat down with Tennis Week — or more precisely we stood in the corner of the court and spoke for this wide-ranging interview.
