Roger Federer Was Training With Stefan Edberg Last Week In Dubai!

Roger Federer revealed via a tweet yesterday that he spent the last week training with Stefan Edberg in Dubai.

With Federer coachless at the moment after letting Paul Annacone go after the US Open, there is some speculation that maybe the 6-time Grand Slam champion Edberg might take over the reigns.

Or maybe Federer just wanted to hit with one of his idols. Or work on his net game. Or learn Swedish. Or learn how to grow old without showing it. Or…

Since retiring from the tour, the 47-year-old Edberg has never been involved in coaching top players.

Federer is due back on court at Brisbane in two weeks.

10 Comments for Roger Federer Was Training With Stefan Edberg Last Week In Dubai!

the DA Says:

Aw…Edberg was one of my all time favorites. Maybe this training week will inspire Fed in ways he hadn’t anticipated.


skeezer Says:

^my thoughts also DA, thanks. Hope Andys back heals good, the game needs him in the top mix of things. Would be nice to see him win another Wimby next year.


Jo Says:

This Edberg spoiled Sampras greatness in 1991-92 after Pete won the 1990 USO. But then Sampras came back and became #1 in 1993 up to 98 for a record 6 yr end @ #1.


Tennis X Hippy Chic Says:

Maybe this is what Roger needs to get him back on track,a new direction some new blood,i hope it works out for him,best of luck Roger whatever happens.


SG1 Says:

That’s awful lot of style on one tennis court.


Steve 27 Says:

A great backhand and serve and volley, but terrible forehand.
After Australia 1994, Edberg was done.
Defeat against Courier on grass?. Really painful.
He should have won more Australian Opens and two more Wimbledon.
And Roland Garros 1989 was his only chance to win it.


SG1 Says:

His backhand was ridiculously sweet. Maybe the single most beautiful shot to watch in the open era.


Humble Rafa Says:

A great backhand and serve and volley, but terrible forehand.

His forehand got better as he retired. He plays better on that side in senior matches.


Susan Shaver Says:

Should we read anything into this? Who knows? Rumor has it that Roger has also been practicing with a larger racquet! At any rate, all I care about is that Fed has a great 2014. Good to know we will see him soon in Brisbane. Hope he wins the Australian Open and makes it #18! ROGER THAT!
