He is defintely missed as he is my 2nd all-time fav. I miss him at Wimbledon especially where I saw him from 91 onwards. The legs are also missed as well
We need more players like Stefan, he is one of the most purest serve/volleyers out there. Although I like the young Swedish contingent that has followed him they are the complete opposite in game to him, Jonas Bjorkman is Swedish with the same type of game.
KC, you're right. Stefan Edberg could have played longer. But without a big serve, and having lost a step, his non stop serve and volley game started to betray him while he was in his late 20's. Once he realized he couldn't contend at the grand slams, he decided to retire. But I still miss him.
Stefan, his wife and two kids moved from England back to Sweden a couple of years ago. He now helps run the Stockholm tournament. He was very upset when Lleyton Hewitt pulled out of Stockholm last year. As far as I know, he is not planning to play the senior tour. And that's too bad. In fact, John McEnroe is very dissaponted that Stefan Edberg and Boris Becker aren't playing on the senior tour. I'm dissapointed, too.
