Federer hopes to use Edberg occasionally

Tennis legend Roger Federer hopes to still be able to call upon Stefan Edberg for some tournaments despite him no longer being part of his coaching team.

Earlier this week Federer confirmed that he would no longer be working with Edberg on a full-time basis after two successful years as the Swede wanted to focus more on his other business interests. 

Though the Swiss did not claim any grand slam titles with Edberg he did win 11 ATP titles and the Swede also helped to alter some of the world number three's tactics plus helped to improve his all round game.

Federer has replaced Edberg with Croatian Ivan Ljubicic on his staff but is hoping to still be able to call on Edberg for a few tournaments in 2016.

“I’ll stay in touch with Stefan Edberg, he’s been a wonderful guy, an incredible inspiration and motivation for me,” said Federer.

“Unfortunately, we won’t be working together as much anymore but he said he would like to come around for some tournaments and we’ll still be in touch,” he added.
