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
