Biography

He also won all four Grand Slam junior titles in 1983 to become the first-ever player to achieve the ‘Junior Grand Slam’.

In 1988, Edberg reached the first of three consecutive finals at Wimbledon. In all three finals, he played Boris Becker in what became one of Wimbledon’s greatest rivalries. The closest of their matches came in the 1990 final, when Edberg won in five sets after being down a break in the fifth set.Stefan Edberg Grand Slam Champion

Also in 1990, Edberg received the United Press International Athlete of the Year Award. He was also a five-time recipient of the ATP Sportsmanship Award (1988–90, 1992, and 1995). In recognition of this achievement, the ATP renamed the award the ‘Stefan Edberg Sportsmanship Award’ in 1996.

Edberg is also the only player ever to earn both Player of the Year and Doubles Team of the Year. Edberg won Player of the Year in 1990 and 1991 and Doubles Team of the Year (with fellow Swede Anders Järryd) in 1986.

In 2004, Edberg was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and is considered one of the finest ever exponents of the serve-and-volley style of play.

Edberg is considered by Tennis Magazine as the 14th greatest player, counting both male and female tennis players, of the Tennis Era. Counting men only, Edberg ranks 8th.

In September 2008, Stefan Edberg officially joined the Black Rock Tour of Champions, a tour for professional tennis players who have since retired from the ATP Tour.

In December 2013 Roger Federer announced on his Facebook page that Stefan would be his new coach.

One of the most respected figures in Grand Slam history, Stefan is in demand as an after dinner speaker and event host.
