Swede Bjorn Borg with his calm demeanor and grace captivated the tennis world in the 1970s and 1980s. His matches with fellow tennis legend John McEnroe were a delightful display of polar opposites laced with heavy entertainment.

The first player in the Open Era to earn more than one million dollars in prize money in a single season, Borg rose to stardom whilst still a teenager. In a sparkling career, Borg won 6 French Open titles and 5 consecutive Wimbledon Championships - a record he shares with Roger Federer.

Borg's Grand Slam win percentage of 89.81% is the highest in the Sport's history and his 5-set record in Grand Slams is also second to none at 24-3. Borg won the 1974 French Open at the age of just 18 years and 10 days.
