Tennis legend Stefan Edberg believes that Switzerland's Roger Federer can win another Grand Slam title while also commenting on Nick Kyrgios. Edberg who was the coach of the Swiss maestro in the past also expressed disappointment that Federer could not win a major title under his guidance.
Edberg who won six Grand Slam singles titles and three Grand Slam doubles titles between 1985 and 1996 was considered to be one of the greatest players of his era. The Swede who coached Federer from 2014 to 2015 could not take his pupil to Grand Slam glory but believes that he (Federer) has it in him to win another major title.
"I thought in the past years he would have won one, he was so close. It becomes even tougher, he is not young anymore but there is still hope. If there's one who can do it, it's Roger. We had two fantastic years together, sometimes we speak to each other on the phone. I try to understand how the situation is and to try to give him a suggestion. It will be an emotional challenge for him to come back next year", said Edberg as quoted by tennis world.
The 50-year-old also spoke about the situation regarding Australian Nick Kyrgios who is regarded as the bad boy of tennis. Kyrgios was in the news for all the wrong reasons after he was handed an eight-week suspension and a fine of $25,000 (£20,522) by the ATP for his behaviour in last month's Shanghai Masters. The controversial star was accused of deliberately under-performing in a match against qualifier Mischa Zverev, which he eventually lost.
"It wasn't a correct attitude. He has a strong character but is talented too. So far he has had emotional ups and downs", the tennis legend added.
