Edberg leads the way for Sweden

Stefan Edberg was the key as Sweden reached the World Team Cup finals by beating Germany in Dusseldorf yesterday. The former world No 1 finished unbeaten with a 7-5 6-3 win over Karsten Braasch. His win helped Sweden defeat Germany 2-1 to capture the Red Group and the chance to play Croatia in today's final. Michael Stich beat Edberg's team-mate, Magnus Larsson, 7-5 7-6 , but Jan Apell and Jonas Bjoerkman then routed Braasch and Patrik Kuhnen 6-0 6-2 to complete Sweden's win. In the final, Edberg faces Sasa Hirszon and Ivanisevic will play Larsson. The doubles teams have not been announced. The top seeds, Meredith McGrath and Larisa Neiland, won the women's World Doubles Cup in Edinburgh yesterday.
