my tennis C.V.:
I started to play tennis in 1980 ;as you know
was in that year the best tennis player
in the world. In 80,bjorn did not lose one match(injured at toronto final) in official tournaments
until the famous us open final(and remember umpire's error at 3/3 in the fifth set against
He is probably one of the 3 greatest players of all-time(for me the greatest, at least the player
who changed the game).John Mcenroe appreciates bjorn , said "You wonder why he left such a
big mark, beyond the obvious results, and it's hard to explain, except to say that it was his look,
his vibe, his presence. There definitely was an aura around him."
I did not want to write a complete text about the career, the scores of the matches,the story
of bjorn(i 've written few years ago a little thing about »the bjorn borg's influence in
development of tennis in the 70s » ;if you are reading this website today, you probably already
know bjorn won 11 grand slam tournaments at 25 years old, davis cup in 75, or maybe too he
started in davis cup at 15 years and 322 days, or he tooke one set to french finalist of the year
before, at 15 years old in 1971( stockholm, vs franulovic)!.see photo right:
I create this site to contact some other bjorn borg fans or collectors ,in sweden and worldwide
.My first goal is to find some bjorn tapes, particularly matches in the period
72/83. You will see
in my section " bjorn borg tapes" the 80 matches i already have. If you can have any others not
my list, i will be interested for, i can buy yours(or exchange with someones of mines).
If bjorn borg is for you more than just a tennis player, don't hesitate and contact me : welcome !
