Quote For The Day

“People ask why I spent so long not playing but I had a pretty long career and I played for pretty much 14 years almost non-stop, because remember I was in seven Davis Cup finals in a row and they were always played in December. So I was quite tired of tennis and needed to get away from the tennis to do some other things and I really didn’t feel like coming back for some time. It’s only over the last year or two that the thought had come into my mind and obviously I have been asked so many times to play the veterans’ tour and every year I’ve said I’m not quite ready and probably won’t be ready. This year I’ve decided to give it a try.” -- Stefan Edberg on why he's finally returning to competitive tennis

Talk about a class act. I think the only thing he's ever gotten stick about over the years was his contention that the #5000 ranked male player would beat the #1 ranked female player. Other than that, he's always been a class act.
