from The Challenge (Arnesen-Tennis)
Four years after he was involved in a bank scandal, Stefan Dahlbo will resign as chairman of the Swedish Tennis Federation. Some twenty days ago, Journalist Jonas Arnesen, one of the most authoritative tennis writers in Sweden, contacted Stefan Edberg to hear if he would be interested in replacing him. (m.c.)
Lots of readers of "Challenge" messaged and emailed me the same thing in recent weeks: Stefan Edberg should be elected new chairman of the Swedish Tennis Federation. I think it would have been an excellent choice. But unfortunately: «The President has an important role but no, it's not for me. I'm already helping Swedish tennis the way I want to and the way I can,» says Stefan to the Challenge.
Clear signals from the former world number one as the Nominating Committee may hold back the call (if they were ever supposed to call).
Stefan is just the kind of leader that the union needs to repair its tarnished reputation.
