    The October 1992 issue of Tennis Magazine celebrated Stefan #Edberg's outstanding triumph at the US Open of that year, his last Grand Slam singles title, obtained with three consecutive comebacks from a break down in the fifth set and a final win on Pete Sampras.

    Stefan was great to watch play. I wish he was still playing... Today's players are boring in comparison. Too bad everyone gets old eventually. My favorite all time player by far.

    Great thread and thank you for posting the article and image - that '92 run is spectacular. I have revisited those matches over and over - each is special ( Even the Lendl-Becker 5 setter for the right to meet Edberg is fascinating dynamics and tennis). The chang/edberg semi still has me shaking my head at the richness of shot making and the contrast in styles...

    I hope that TTC is savy enough not to rerun these classic matches in prime time, too many current fans might actually see what they are missing today...
