Bjorn Brog Revealed one opponent he would have loved to face

Roger Federer has stated that if he could travel back in time, he would only play BJORN BORG.

Former world No. 1 Borg is regarded by many as the greatest tennis player of all time, and his rise to prominence closely coincided with the 1970s tennis boom.

The now 61-year-old Swede had a 10-year professional career between 1973 and 1983, winning five Wimbledon championships and six trophies at the French Open to go along with 64 career victories overall.

 

Federer also mentioned that the one opponent he wished he could have faced was Borg.

 

“If I had a time machine, I would like to head to the court against Bjorn Borg,” declared the 20-time Grand Slam champion.

He was a very sophisticated and all-around player when playing from behind the court.

 

“In 2017, I captained him in the first Laver Cup.

 

“He was amazing. He informed me about tennis in his day and we had a lengthy conversation.

Borg had little choice but to quit at the age of 26, driven by health problems and fatigue, while Federer, now 36, is still playing at the greatest level.

His most recent victory at the Rotterdam Open became his 97th career victory and surpassed Andre Agassi to become the oldest world No. 1 in tennis history.

 

He has stated he would return to Dubai in 2019 but will miss the Dubai Duty Free Championships in order to be as fresh as possible as he seeks to hold onto his titles in Miami and Indian Wells in March.
