"I'm lost here! I came back this morning, and many things have changed since the last time I was here in 1996. I do not really recognize any of the stadiums. But I'm glad to be here" - Stefan Edberg about coming back to Melbourne, 18 years after his last appearance at the Australian Open as a player. Read the interview
In the last Grand Slam event of his career, Stefan Edberg faces Tim Henman in the fourth round. Lost the first set, he reaches the tie-break in the second. On the score of 5-2, he plays this unbeliavable shot. He returns Henman's lob with one of his own that ends on the bottom line and, on the Brit's approach, he ends the rally with a beautiful backhand passing shot down the line. John McEnroe at the commentary for the US television can't believe the ball is in. From that shot on, Stefan will cruise to victory.
