To be young, beautiful, and gifted:
The 1984 Davis-Cup
Double match, my writeup after viewing the match
on tape in 2003. A very young Stefan, at 18, along
with Anders Jarryd, wowed them
at the doubles match that concluded Sweden's second
Davis-cup victory. What a treat.
Too bad that there weren't more closeups of a very young Stefan.
But what aplomb for an 18 year old "youngster."
He certainly impressed the three ESPN commentators.
Action louder than Words, my
writeup on a moment in Edberg's 1985 AO semifinal against
Ivan Lendl, where his action did the talking.
Stefan vs. Thomas Muster,
an account of Stefan's last match against Thomas Muster,
the Austrian star, on Muster's home turf, plus
postings from rec.sports.tennis. Stefan has an unblemished
record against the Austrian tennis star.
Lloyd: Tim needs Edberg, an
article which appeared on BBC Sports online in April 2001,
in which David Lloyd suggested that Tim Henman seek
Stefan as coach.
"Edberg-by-the Sea", a 1998 article by Roger M. Williams
TennisONE Travel Editor, about Edberg becoming a part owner
of the Tennis Club de Beauvallon in Ste Maxime on the French Riviera.
”Jag är väl en tråkig person”
("I guess I am a boring person"), an article that appeared in
http://www.expressen.se, 7/10/2002. Excellent and humorous description of
Stefan - English translation provided by Bjorn.
My account of my fantastic time at the
Adidas Smash event held at the Ocean Edge Resort in
Cape Cod, summer 2002;
A 2002 article by Ted Robinson,
USA Network's commentator at US Opens, who paid a heartfelt
compliment to Edberg in the last paragraph of this article,
posted on the eve of the 2002 US Open. The original article was
accompanied by a photo of Stefan. I am thankful for the article:
Stefan has not been forgotten by those who were there during
his glorious days at Flushing Meadows.
End of the Serve and Volley Era?
Postings on the Tennis Warehouse "pro player talk" board, September
2002. An excellent analysis which pays tribute to Edberg and
explains why serve-and-volley will be
played less and less.
On line, off limits,
a Wimbledon 2004 article that appeared in the Guardian --
testimony from a linesman who described the bratty behavior
of some big-name players, while calling Stefan, in contrast, a genleman.
The Tennis Week Interview: Stefan Edberg
By Richard Pagliaro of Tennis Week,
07/22/2004. This is an excellent interview that
was also taken at the Ocean Edge and came accompanied
with a photo of the family.
Stefan Edberg-a critical analysis
by Suketu, Published on Sydenham's newsletter "Speak" in Nov. 95 -
a serious analysis of Edberg's game, which I don't completely
agree with; but it is well written and insightful.
