Following second straight loss to Novak Djokovic, Stefan Edberg says his man Roger Federer can still win an 8th Wimbledon. Of course he’s biased, but can Roger do it?
“I still believe he can do it,” said Edberg. “It’s not going to be easy but if he keeps himself in shape and has the motivation to work hard, he is still one of the best grass court players out there.
“Once he comes to a final you always feel he has a chance but he has played Novak two years in a row now. He is not the easiest guy.”
Edberg also assessed the final, won by Djokovic in four sets, stating the first set was critical:
Federer hasn’t won a Grand Slam title since the 2012 Wimbledon. Next year he’ll be 34, approaching 35, at the 2016 Wimbledon Championships.
“It would have been nicer to win some than to lose some,” Federer said Sunday. “At the same time I lost against the world No.1 at the moment. That’s the kind of guy you probably can lose against. But I’m not going to accept it and say, It’s normal. It’s not. I’ve beaten him a few times. I’m one of the few guys that’s gotten a chance. Same with Stan and a few guys that have given Novak a run for the money.”
