"If I play like I did here in Madrid I have got no doubt about my chances of winning the Roland Garros, my goal for this season" - Stefan Edberg on his state of form before the 1993 French Open. Read the article
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.
