The six-time Major winner Stefan Edberg watched the Wimbledon final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic from the Royal Box. The Swede, who coached the Swiss in 2014 and 2015, knows how it feels to lose to Djokovic as, under his guide, Federer lost two Wimbledon finals and one US Open.
Edberg enjoyed the great tennis. "One of the most balanced and emotional finals I saw. A classic! Two great players who delivered an unbelievably high level for a long period of time", he wrote in a text as quoted by Expressen.
Fidde Rosengren, Kyle Edmund' coach, added: "It was a magical thing that we can never experience again. This is a prestigious final because both know that it will not last forever. Federer knows Wimbledon is his chance to win another Major.
If Djokovic stays healthy and motivated, he will catch Roger." The former world No. 4 and former Wimbledon winner Pat Cash believes Federer should take positives from his run: "Roger had a great performance played well all tournament.
He served and returned very well, made the right variety of shots, he did everything he needed to do. In the end, there was a few nerves and a few poor shots in the tiebreaker. It was just six or seven bad shots and that’s it.
But with the way he played and how close he came, he’ll take the belief that No21 is there for him. It was only the smallest margins that denied him", he said speaking on the BBC on Sunday after the final.
