"The idea was only to do one year. I couldn't believe it when he (Edberg) said yes in the first place," Federer said.

'Great split'
"We had a great split in (the) sense that we've known for 10 months that it was going to end at the end of the year." Federer said Edberg's replacement, Croatian Ivan Ljubicic, a former world number three, would offer a new perspective as part of the current generation of players.

"It's the first time that I've had someone within my team whose actually played on tour against the players that I've played against," he said.
