Stefan Edberg interviewed by Gernot Gsellmann
Calm, sun and snow: ex-ATP Number 1 Stefan Edberg for the first time on holidays in Tirol.
“Please, where do you want to sit ?”
Even if he already had to give thousand of interviews, he never lost the Scandinavian kindness and politeness. And after putting an end to his career, he looks even more thoughtful. “I just enjoy life, at home in Växjö, or here in St Leonhard.”
The former number 1 and six-times Gran Slam winner spends his holidays in Pitztal (Tirol) with nine people, including his wife Annette and kids Emelie (16) and Christopher (13). Gernot Gsellmann talked to the 44 years old Swedish “Sir” about his past, present and future.
- What brought you to Pitztal ?
My friend Günther Müller. He organized this ski week. He found the perfect hotel for us in Kirchenwert. Quiet, family-friendly and really comfortable.
