edberg was watching a wimbledon match when the camera zoomed in on him. and i noticed that he doesn't look like a retired tennis star. he looks as young as many current tour pros.
guess lots of money and a carefree life don't make you age

Edberg looks youthful for his age. He still has his hair and hasn't put on much weight. I think blonde hair can blend/hide gray hair much better than dark hair.

I saw glimpses of Becker during the Germany vs. Argentina match. He has the trendy hair style where the middle part puffs up, similar to David Beckham.

Edberg and Becker have aged much better than Agassi and Sampras.

It's leaving the forests & lakes of Sweden and moving to smoggy London that is keeping him young. And having small children.

Actually Stefan has moved back to Sweden John McEnroe mentioned that. Stefan is now very involved with the Swedish tennis federation. I am glad that Stefan wants to help and support his country.

It was nice to see Edberg at his old stomping grounds. He definitely looked fit; playing tennis regularly in Sweden probably helps. Also nice to hear about his contribution to tennis in his homeland. That guy is the epitome of classiness.

Edberg mentioned in an interview a couple of years ago that when he played a lot of players had a one-handed backhand. Now all the young guys he helps play with two hands.

Just another example of how things have changed and evolved in tennis from one generation to the next.

Not sure going to a 2 hander is "evolving"---all the really great backhands are 1 handers--Federer, Gasquet, Haas, Gaudio, Murray, Henin-Hardin, Mauresmo.

Edberg looks okay.


BECKER on the other hand looks like a drunken 37 year old country star <_<

There are some great two handers - Agassi and Safin are two prime examples. Plus, if you mean Andy Murray, he plays with two hands.

Nadal's backhand can be very dirty at times as well, finding very sick angles and keeping him in the point often.

agassi and safin have the best two handed backhands, federer's backhand is by far not a weapon.

Nice to hear that about Edberg. Maybe constantly S+V'ing was easier on his body and his looks?

What about Agassi, Safin, Nadal, Nalbandian.....................and virtually every women on tour? Nah, forget it, one hand is better, case settled.
