Edberg news

July 5, 2006

Stefan is at the Wimbledon, with Tony Pickard -- too bad about the PROOF marks on these photos, but as you can see, he's as dashing as ever. How I do miss him and his tennis.

Stefan and Annette are in fine form.
The photo above was sent in by long-time Edhead Donna. It was taken at the London(?) premier of the movie "Goal!", this year (2006).
Another photo of the couple, taken at the same event, can be seen here (thanks to Jennifer for sharing).

Stefan was in this year's Roland Garros. He handed out the tropies at the conclusion of the final.

Stefan is back in good health -- apparently has has recovered from the back problem that had ailed him for a whole year. From The Cape Cod Times:

Once again Stefan will be at the adidas tennis smash at Ocean Edge Resort & Club on Cape Cod - July 11-12th. Here's how the event is described: See Mauro's Stefan Edberg News Journal site for details.

We are in luck. A big Edberg fan was at both the HOF AND the Adida Smash on Cape Cod. He very graciously offered to share a huge album of photos that he took from these events, plus photos from last year's Queen's exhibition match (against Becker). There are almost 200 photos in this album! Check it out here. A big thanks to Rajeev! Below are a few choice ones:

Inspired by Rajeev, I put together an album of my favorite Stefan photos - see here.

I found a couple more HOF photos from this album that I must have previously overlooked, including the one above of Edberg and Tony Pickard and the one below:

This site: www.webspawner.com/users/tennisvideos/index.html, lists some great Edberg matches on video at very reasonable price. I highly recommend Edberg vs. Cash 87 AO, Edberg vs. Lendl 87 Seiko, and Edberg vs. McEnroe 89 Wimbledon. There are also two must-have's: Edberg vs. Becker, '90 Wimbldeon Final, and Edberg vs. Courier, '91 US Open Final.

Richard Pagliaro of Tennis Week shared this photo of Stefan with Rod Laver, taken at the Adida Smash on Cape Cod that took place a day after the HOF induction:

A big thanks to Rachelle for sending in the text for an interview that appeared in the July issue of the Australian tennis magazine. I have received a copy of the magazine from a kind Edberg fan, and was hoping for the text to appear on the web by some miracle :-) Surely enough, someone posted the text on the men's tennis forum, according to Rachelle.
You can read the text here. The published article did come with a few photos, but they are not new.

A big thanks to Penny for alerting me to a really sweet interview currently posted on the tennisweek site: It has a photo of the family, sans sunshades. Unfortunately the photo is small - I have written to thank Richard Pagliaro and to ask for a bigger version of the photo. We will see what he says. Meanwhile, please do checkout the interview and send Richard tennisweek@tennisweek.com a note of thanks, if you have the time.

I have some good news. The International Hall of Fame has promptly and graciously replied to my enquiry, and here's what I was told:

I will certainly get back with them on this, as advised, and will post the information here.
The event is coming up soon: July 11 Sunday is the day. The ceremony will be held at noon, followed by the singles and doubles final.

Wanted and willing to share: Edberg matches

If you have any video of Edberg matches, I would appreciate hearing from you.
I have tapes of some of Edberg's finest matches, including three of his 1991 U.S. Open matches, and a couple of his 1992 epic matches, as well as his winning Wimbledon finals.
Please write me at mlliu@charter.net .)
