Classic Rivalry: Jim Courier vs. Stefan Edberg

Stefan Edberg

Head To Head: 6-4

On Clay: 1-0

On Hard: 4-3

On Carpet: 0-1

In Finals: 3-1

Titles: 23-42

Turned Pro: 1988-1983


The very early 90s belonged to these two players. Courier had a career year in 1991 and Edberg was entering his twilight but arguably his best years and contested 4 finals.

Edberg had the better of Jim early in their matches until Courier in his own words ‘figured out how to beat him’. A classic combination of the attacking serve and volleyer vs. the counter-puncher.

Watch: Edberg play perfect tennis to beat Jimbo
