Was watching an old clip of Federer practicing with Edberg at Indian Wells and was struck by the amazing combination of all-time great strokes/quality on that court:

- Federer's forehand
- Federer's backhand topspin/slice
- Federer's ROS both sides
- Federer's serve
- Federer's footwork
- Edberg's backhand topsin/slice/ROS
- Edberg's backhand volley
- Edberg's forehand volley
- Edberg's footwork

+ 2 of the most aesthetically brilliant players ever!

wow! wouldn't have minded making the long trek to IW to watch that!

Coincidentally I watched that vid last night.

I've been trying to find the video of Edberg playing Tsonga in Doha for an exo set when Fed was supposed to play and withdrew.

I think Jo won 7-5 but Edberg played really well.

Edberg is the man still even though he's old...I saw that match against Tsonga. Maybe Tsonga not 100% but still Edberg has it still. That volley...ck ck ck!

Federer's backhand isn't in the all time conversation, though it is beautiful.
