"I have always just wanted to play good tennis, trying not to be different from what I was, I am. I've never tried to create an image of myself that doesn't correspond to the truth, a concern that many of today's players seem to have, instead" - Stefan Edberg on his personality. Read the interview
In the first set of the 1993 Australian Open final against Jim Courier, Stefan Edberg is down 2-5 and finds himself in trouble in the eighth game, when he has to save three consecutive set points on his serve. The rally in the clip happens on the score of 30-40. Stefan follows his serve to the net and, on Courier's crosscourt backhand passing, he performs an unbelievable stretch to put a backhand drop volley just on the other side. In spite of a great run, Big Jim can do nothing to return the ball.
