"I felt like I was twenty years old again. Certainly I would have preferred to have won in '89, but I went back to that time and it was fantastic. I played like then. Only this way I could beat someone like Chang on clay..." - Stefan Edberg on his revenge against Michael Chang at the 1996 French Open. Read the article
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.
