Stefan Edberg Quotes.
A good thing is I’ve been playing tennis I think every day for the last two months. I really haven’t had a day off. I’ve been doing things that I did used to do.
A win is a win.
If I’m going to be out there, I want to be in the top 10 and really have a chance of winning a Grand Slam.
The serve really is the key to my game.
I’m really trying to focus myself on playing tennis, and I think that’s really important.
I felt that I did have the crowd behind me. That obviously helps a lot.
It was a tough year for me, ’89, losing two Slam finals and losing another five finals. It wasn’t until I won the Masters, or what’s now called the ATP Finals, that things changed again. Suddenly I won seven tournaments in 1990 and became No. 1.
I’ve been here playing against Connors and it can be very, very loud. It makes it exciting at the same time.
I think in 1991, when Jimmy got to the semifinals, it was just incredible all of the people coming out.
I’m telling you, it’s so exciting playing out there because I’m playing well, you have the crowd behind you, and it’s such a good feeling. I’m really having a good time out there.
For me, and most of the other players, too, if you had to pick one of the four Grand Slams, you would pick Wimbledon. It’s got tradition, it’s got atmosphere, and it’s got mystique.
I played Chang here under the lights here. I think that was ’91. Another good match. I’ve played a lot more good matches under the lights than I played bad. You tend to remember some of the bad ones unfortunately.
Once you succeed in tennis, financially you become quite well off.
I had one good racket, a Wilson Javelin. It was my favorite racket, and I made the mistake of putting it next to the heater. It just got so hot that it melted.
You lose some, you win some. Nothing wrong with that at all.
