"I've always been used to keeping it all inside but it was only tactics, because, as when you play poker, you have to show as little as possible to your opponent, you don't have to bring your weaknesses out and exploit his. For me, the perfect example of how to be on a tennis court is Chang" - Stefan Edberg on his on court attitude. 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.
