Congratulations to Legend Bjorn Borg on his birthday πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰. “What a devastating speech he made to everybody”

Tennis: The Swedish player has experienced difficult times in addition to Grand Slam victories, like as his divorce with Loredana Bertè, being bankrupt and having to sell some rackets and trophies, and even attempting suicide.

60 years old is Bjorn Borg. Today, rather than hosting 500 guests at his house to mark his 40th birthday, the Swedish manβ€”who is married to Patricia and the father of 13-year-old Leoβ€”decided to commemorate this new “goal” with a select group of individuals he loves the most. A well-earned enjoyable post-career following ten years of incredible success, the most notable of which were the three consecutive Roland Garros and Wimbledon victories he achieved between 1978 and 1980 (something no one else in the Open Era was able to accomplish).

He was the World No. 1 player for 109 weeks, won 64 titles (including 11 Grand Slams), and tragically retired at the age of 26 due to the physical and psychological strain of the intense competition. After losing to John McEnroe in the Wimbledon 1980 championship match, Borg’s decline began. Borg also decided to retire since the Swedish champion would not recognize his ranking as the world’s number one.

2, after the actual No. 1. After defeating Ivan Lendl in his final Major victory at Roland Garros in 1981, he had reached his limit. Weary in every aspect, he declared his retirement in January 1983. Between 1991 and 1993, he made two unsuccessful attempts to return. Following his marriage to Loredana BertΓ©, he experienced financial difficulties that compelled him to sell several rackets and trophies, and he even attempted suicide. The telltale symptoms of a person whose tale of tennis cannot be ignored. As Ilie Nastase once said of him, “Borg does not play tennis, he plays another thing,” it is unavoidable. Bjorn, happy birthday! READ ALSO: Bjorn Borg: “For a long time, tennis has been very protected.”
