Roger Federer and Stefan Edberg got together with Wilson to discuss the racquets that they have used in their careers and the legacy of Wilson’s tennis racquets. Edberg, Federer, and even Pete Sampras have had their own customized versions of Wilson’s Pro Staff.  This racquet has the incredible record of  117 Grand Slam wins and is the most winning racquet of all time.  More importantly, Federer and Edberg share their stories of changing to this racquet, adjustments made, and how the racquet impacted their game.  I love how these two champions discuss which racquets they still have from their lifelong winning streak.  Let’s dive right into Roger Federer and Stefan Edberg.

In this episode we revisit the first Instagram interview that I think happened when tennis was first canceled.  It’s the conversation between world number #1 Novak Djokovic and grand slam champion Stanislas Wawrinka. You really get a sense of how playful and fun they are together and how much respect they have for each other.   I love the insider locker room thoughts they share about playing grand slams and their nerves getting ready to take center court. They both discuss playing Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal and I feel like it’s a conversation that could have only been shared in a time of COVID. I hope you enjoy this audio-only broadcast of their interview.  If you want to hear more content like this let us know on social @lovesetmatch and make sure to follow so we can connect!   Visit tennispal.com to download the tennis app everyone is talking about and access the show notes!  Send an email to pk@tennispal.com for more information. Download from iTunes here Thanks for recommending and listening!
