Unlike his illustrious countrymen Björn Borg and Mats Wilander, who claimed the game’s most valued prizes largely on the strength of their remarkable ground strokes, Stefan Edberg made his living at the net. An esteemed athlete who covered the court with grace and alacrity, Edberg owned one of the finest backhand volleys in the history of the game. Twice a singles champion at the Australian Open, Wimbledon, and the US Open, Edberg was revered all throughout the tennis world for his grace, impeccable sportsmanship, and admirable composure.
