Stefan Edberg can meet Boris Becker in the Australian Open final
Stefan Edberg and his old tennis rival Boris Becker, now starring as coaches of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic, could meet again in the Australian Open final.
World number two Novak Djokovic, who is now coached by German former world number one Boris Becker, has won the Australian Open the last three years. On Friday the draw of the 2014 edition was made up.
Roger Federer, who slipped down to sixth place in the world rankings, chose to pick out the Swedish former big star and world number one Stefan Edberg to face the new tennis season.
Edberg and Becker, who among other things met in the 1988 Wimbledon final won by the Swede 3 sets to 1, can face each other as coaches in the Australian Open final.
But this requires that Federer and Edberg, among the others, get past the quarter-finals where the former world number one Ivan Lendl is probably waiting. For several years Lendl has been training Scot and world number four Andy Murray.
