First Andy Murray hired former multiple major tournament winner Ivan Lendl to his coaching team and won the Olympics, U.S. Open and Wimbledon. Then Novak Djokovic announced that he would work with Boris Becker.
Now Roger Federer, fading at the age of 32, is trying to pump up his career by adding multiple majors winner Stefan Edberg to his team, starting at the Australian Open. Federer, who already has a record 17 major titles, made the announcement on his Facebook page. Last October, Federer split with former coach Paul Annacone, who coached Pete Sampras to his last U.S. Open title.
Federer finished 2013 ranked No. 6 in the world, and it was the first year since 2002 he didn't win a single major or even make a major final.
