Stefan Edberg joins Roger Federer's coaching team


Roger Federer has followed in the footsteps of Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic by appointing a former grand slam champion to his coaching staff.

The 17-time major winner has hired six-time grand slam champion Stefan Edberg ahead of next month’s Australian Open in Melbourne.

Edberg won Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open all twice and was a former world number one.

The Swede won a career 42 titles, including the Masters Grand Prix 1989 and was a part of the Swedish Davis Cup-winning-team four times.

Djokovic recently appointed Boris Becker to his coaching staff while Murray has been working with Ivan Lendl since late 2011.

The Australian Open begins on 13 January when 32-year-old Federer begins his bid for a first major title since his 2012 Wimbledon triumph over Andy Murray.
