Resistance is futile

Post by reckoner on Sun Feb 05, 2017 1:09 pm

Aparently Bjorn Borg's 13 year old son Leo is doing reasonably well on the junior's circuit:

Its completely irrational as Bjorn doesn't coach him and doesn't even seem that involved, but the prospect of seeing that name in a tennis context is exciting.

Very interesting piece, thanks for posting reckoner

One question came to mind as I was reading it ...... not sure if anyone can help. There is a quote from Borg senior who, in reference to son Leo (they apparently sometimes play together) says "If he asks me for advice, of course I respond."

Just wondered why his Dad would be able to offer any useful advice ? Did he in fact play tennis at a professional level ..... and if so, how well did he do .... ?? chin

Vaguely remember him.. Erm think he won a few matches.
Cant think why his son would want advice.. who listens to their father anyway Whistle

No, you could be right there H-n.

These days, tennis-playing kids just treat their Mum & Dad as a taxi service
