Extractions: Please choose a year below: Little Stefan began playing tennis at the age of seven in Västervik, Sweden. Youth-trainer Sven Bergsten noticed Stefan's talent for the game, especially the kid's feeling for the ball and his excellent movement on the court. Bergsten decided to become Stefan's coach along the way to what eventually became the top. 1980 became his breakthrough year as youth player by winning the European Championships in both singles and doubles. Västervik was by now far too small to further develop and train young Edberg. A move to Stockholm was a fact and Percy Rosberg took over the coaching job from Bergsten. It was Rosberg who convinced young Stefan to drop his double-handed backhand for a smooth single-handed one (although it took him almost six months to fully learn to play one-handed!).

Stefan Edberg Comes To New England off. Yes, that stefan edberg. The Swedish tennis ace who retired in1996, at the tender age of 30. Sixtime Grand Slam champion. http://www.tennis-ontheline.com/02edberg.htm
Extractions: And then I caught sight of a figure playing on the far-side of the rightmost of the three courts. There was a certain familiarity in the posture and the movements. By the time I saw the winged forehand and that text-book backhand, there was no mistaking: I was beholding none other than Stefan Edberg. I thrusted $20 into the hand of the startled and uncomprehending waitress, and rushed off. Yes, that Stefan Edberg. The Swedish tennis ace who retired in 1996, at the tender age of 30. Six-time Grand Slam champion. Holder of 42 singles and 19 doubles titles. Winner of over 20 million in prize money. Serve-and-volleyer the likes of which the world no longer sees. Namesake of the ATP Sportsman of the Year Award. And, a player who has been sorely missed. And there he was, looking as if time had stood still since his retirement. Slender and poised as ever, Stefan, along with Jan-Michael Gambill, was playing pro-am tennis. Each was paired with an amateur in four successive sessions of doubles that was to last all morning. Dressed in loose-fitting tennis top and white shorts, Stefan could easily have passed for a college student. He was looking relaxed and happy, sliding on the green clay freely and laughing easily. The amateurs who entered this event were not your ordinary tennis hacks, and some amazing exchanges were on display, with the lay players winning praises from their approving partners. At one point, Stefan dropped his racket to feign astonishment at a volley hit at an impossible angle by his partner. At another point, while waiting for the next session to begin, Edberg could be seen demonstrating his ball control prowess by bouncing a tennis ball on alternate sides of his racket, and then on the edge of the frame of the racquet. He is playing with Wilson Pro Staff racquets still, although the big W logo is absent from the racket face.
Stefan Edberg Snubbed By Hall Of Fame stefan edberg snubbed by the tennis Hall of Fame by ML Liu. Word has come that (Boris) Becker is the lone nominee in the Recent Player Category on the 2003 http://www.tennis-ontheline.com/02edsnub.htm
Extractions: Word has come that "(Boris) Becker is the lone nominee in the Recent Player Category" on the 2003 Tennis Hall of Fame ballot. (See here This was rather startling news. I had long assumed that Stefan Edberg, who retired in 1996, would be a shoo-in for the nomination and induction, as soon as he became eligible, which happens to be this year. And I am not alone in making this bold assumption: Among Edberg fans there has been talks of making arrangements to attend the induction ceremony next year. And at an exhibition event held in Cape Cod this past July, Brett Haber the emcee introduced Edberg as a "future Hall of Famer." To be perfectly frank, I personally don't give a rat's care about Halls of Fame. I had never paid any attention to them, in any sport. And it didn't escape my attention that when Mats Wilander was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame this year, hardly anyone noticed. But the announcement that Becker rather than Edberg is this year's nominee is jarring, as it amounts to a slight on Stefan Edberg. And it is rather baffling. This is what is posted on the Hall's web site:

Extractions: Alpha Index Index by Sport Index of Women Ranked first in the world in 1990 and 1991, Edberg won a total of six grand slam singles titles: Wimbledon in 1988 and 1990, the U. S. Open in 1991 and 1992, and the Australian Open in 1985 and 1987. A strong, solid baseline player, Edberg put on a dramatic performance in his 1992 U. S. Open victory. He was losing in the fifth set of three matches, against Richard Krajicek, Ivan Lendl, and Michael Chang, but he pulled out a victory in each. Then he lost the first set of his final match against Pete Sampras before rallying to win in four sets. Edberg retired after the 1995 season with 41 tournament victories and a total of $20,411,361 in earnings, which ranks fourth all-time.

Extractions: Alpha Index Index by Sport History Bits Forum ... Search Table of Contents The Australian Open was established in 1905 as the Australasian Tennis Championship, played at the Warehouseman's Cricket Ground in Melbourne. It became the Australian Championship in 1927 and the Australian Open in 1969. Women's events were added in 1922. The tournament was held at various locations until 1972, when the Lawn Tennis Association of Australia (now Tennis Australia) decided that the Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club in Melbourne should become the permanent site because it had the largest capacity. As the Open gained popularity during the 1980s, it outgrew that site. In 1986, the government began construction of the multi-purpose Flinders Park, which opened in January 1988. The park was further expanded in 1995 and was renamed Melbourne Park the following year. Originally, the tournament was held in January. It was moved to December in 1977, so there were two tournaments that year. In 1987, the event was moved back to January; as a result, there was no tournament in 1986. Center Court at Melbourne has a capacity of 15,021 and a retractable roof. There are also four show courts, with seating capacities ranging from 1,100 to 6,000, and 19 other outdoor match and practice courts, as well as four indoor practice courts.
Extractions: Stefan Edberg won 41 career singles titles and 18 career doubles titles. He captured 6 Grand Slam singles titles - 2 Australian Open Championships (1985, '87 - the last man to win on Australian grass), 2 Wimbledon Championships (1988, '90) and 2 US Open Championships (1991, '92). Edberg also won the 1996 Australian Open Doubles title (with Petr Korda), and captured the 1987 Australian and US Open Doubles Championships (both with Anders Jarryd). Edberg, who turns 38 on January 19, is a former World No. 1 ranked player, having removed Ivan Lendl from the top spot on August 13, 1990. During his career he spent a total of 72 (non-consecutive) weeks at No. 1, and finished the 1990 and 1991 seasons as the No. 1 player in the world. Edberg was ranked in the year-end Top 10 for ten straight years (1985-1994) finishing in the Top 5 from 1985-93. He received ATP Player of the Year honors in 1991, and again in 1992. Edberg is a 5-time recipient of the ATP's Sportsmanship Award (1988-90, '92, '95), more than any player in ATP history. In 1996, the ATP again honored Edberg, this time by renaming this award the Edberg Sportsmanship Award.
