Old rivalries will be renewed on and off the court in the men’s Wimbledon final on Sunday when Roger Federer, bidding for a record eighth title, takes on top seed Novak Djokovic.
While two of the game’s most recognisable figures meet on Centre Court, their ‘super coaches’ will be pitted against each other once again in southwest London.
Former champions Boris Becker and Stefan Edberg were embroiled in one of the All England Club’s fiercest rivalries from 1988 to 1990, competing in three successive finals with Edberg winning two of them.

Since then the pair have turned their attention to coaching with Djokovic and Becker joining forces in December last year and Federer and Edberg following suit.
“It’s going really well,” 17-times grand slam champion Federer said of his relationship with Swede Edberg. “My game’s back where I hoped it would be from one year ago.
The Swiss has not reached a grand slam final since clinching the Wimbledon title in 2012.
Djokovic won Wimbledon in 2011, and last captured a grand slam title at the Australian Open in 2013, but he has lost his last three major finals, including Wimbledon last year to Andy Murray.
