“Working with Roger (Federer) is going really well,” he said. “There’s no pressure from my side; I’ll be there as long as he wants me to be.”

Stefan Edberg will take on countryman Mats Wilander for the first time in 19 years in order to secure a place in a second consecutive Kings of Tennis final.

“I have been looking forward to defending my title here but I have to beat Mats before I’m in the final,” said Edberg. “Our matches always used to be so tough, so I’m not taking anything for granted. I feel in good shape though and I love playing on this court. Hopefully there will be an amazing crowd for that match against Mats, so I hope it will be special.”

“Being on the main tour again with Roger definitely helps to get the competitive juices flowing,”’ he said. “I’ve been watching lots of matches and being around Roger and the tour has been quite inspiring. It helps that I’m hitting with Roger, that definitely keeps me sharp and being around the competition again is really motivating.”
