This week end Stefan Edberg is playing in Apeldoorn, The Netherlands in the 10th edition of the AFAS Tennis Classics. The exhibition tournament, organized by former doubles specialists Jacco Eltingh and Paul Haarhuis, features several stars from the tour of the 80s and 90s, such as Ivan Lendl, Andrei Medvedev, Henri Leconte and local favourite Richard Krajicek. Paul Haarhuis will also take part in the event.
Edberg's presence has been ensured since last May, but we have to say the organizers didn't do their best to promote the event. The official site and the Facebook page only have a Dutch version, so we came to know Edberg was there only at the last moment thanks to a Dutch fan, Gabriella Kraaiveld.
Stefan arrived yesterday night in Apeldoorn, a town some 80 kms south east of Amsterdam. He is with his wife Annette and with children Christopher and Emilie. His first match will be against Henri Leconte, on Friday 7th at 20.00 CET, so in about an hour. Tomorrow, the Swede will meet former rival Ivan Lendl at 14.30 CET.
