"I think he should adopt a more attacking game strategy because now everybody knows how he plays and everyone wants to beat him. If he goes 5 times out of 10 to the net, it will destabilize his opponent" - Stefan Edberg about how Roger Federer should play against Rafael Nadal. 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.
