A packed stadium, an important tennis stadium like Queen's Club's in London. If by chance, someone had been late for Sunday's final between Andy Roddick and Sebastien Grosjean, he would have found on Centre Court not less than Stefan Edberg and Boris Becker, the original ones, in perfect shape, who faced each other with the same determination as ten or twelve years ago.

John McEnroe set himself a double mission at this year's Honda Challenge at the Royal Albert Hall - to win and to persuade Stefan Edberg to join him on the Seniors' Tour.
The first target remained achievable as he waited to play the last of his three round-robin group matches last night. The other was still proving elusive.

The Swedish former Wimbledon champion delights the crowd while Korda and Leconte reach Challenge semi-finals
The only thing about Stefan Edberg that was ever high-profile was his sumptuous tennis. The court was the only place where he did not blend into the background as if camouflaged. During the many years he lived in Kensington, as a Wimbledon champion and world No 1, Edberg would stroll to Queen's Club to practise between tournaments, not exactly unnoticed but never pestered.
At 36, Edberg is even more selective about where and when he plays. His preference is a "small little court" near his home in Grimslov, Sweden, where he can play for an hour-and-a-half with one of the teenagers from his tennis foundation.
