News: Why did Bjorn Borg end his career at such a young age? “Story that not everybody knows about 👇👇

At the comparatively young age of 26, Swedish tennis star Bjorn Borg announced his retirement from professional tennis. His early retirement was caused by a number of factors: Burnout: Borg was one of the most dominant players in tennis history and won multiple Grand Slam titles at a young age, achieving enormous success. He became burned out as a result of the strain and demands of the sport. Motivation: As he grew older, Borg found it difficult to stay motivated and passionate about the game. He was no longer as motivated to compete at the top level since he believed he had accomplished everything he had set out to accomplish in tennis.

Lifestyle: In addition to his on-court struggles, Borg also had to deal with personal problems and the pressures of fame and popularity. He may have decided to quit playing professional tennis as a result of these circumstances. Changes in the game: Borg’s aggressive and powerful baseline approach was losing its effectiveness against new players who adopted more forceful and aggressive playing styles. His retirement may have been impacted by how the game has changed. Ultimately, Bjorn Borg’s choice to quit early in his career was probably influenced by a confluence of factors including burnout, motivational decline, personal difficulties, and shifts in the tennis scene.

Fatigue, exhaustion, “health” problems (more on that later), and, most crucially, eventually a lack of will to carry out the necessary actions to maintain one’s position of leadership. Because Bjorn was never a “talker,” he never discussed his hardships, the obstacles he conquered, or the processes involved in becoming and maintaining the greatest player in history (he held the record for 109 weeks, ranking eighth all time). While Borg controlled and disciplined himself, he played in the age of players like Vitas Gerulaitis, McEnroe, Connors, and Nastase who had no trouble “expressing” themselves on or off the court.

Though he is a legend, Borg only ever went to the Australian Open once, playing in three grand slams back in December of that year. Borg might have easily surpassed Emerson (who held the record at the time) in his total of 11 Slams. Borg won the French Open six times, including four in a row from 1978 to 1981, and missed it in 1977 due to the WTT/ITF controversy. He also won five Wimbledon championships in a succession from 1976 to 1980. During that period, he participated in four US Open finals, his first coming in 1976 as a teenager. Because of his emotionlessness both on and off the court, the media referred to him as a robot (as they did with Lendl and Sampras in the future, but more so with Borg).

Borg participated in ten US Opens, making it to four finals (along with two SFs and one QF). The only Slam to have “night” matches was the US Open. Borg was a purist and never felt at ease among the raucous, noisy spectators at the US Open. As a purist, he also disliked night matches, but more significantly, he found it extremely difficult to see the ball under lights at night.

As is already well known, Borg never participated in another Grand Slam tournament after leaving the court prior to the post-match ceremony following his 4 set defeat to John McEnroe in the 1981 championship match. Before that encounter, Borg had won 14 straight five-set matches, including one over McEnroe in the 1980 Wimbledon final, and had not lost a five-set match in nearly five years. Borg had a strong desire to win the US Open, and he had intended to go to Australia in order to win all four majors in one year if he had done it in 1981.

Many people believe that Borg left because of McEnroe, but Borg’s motivations were all personal; at 26, he knew he didn’t need to put himself through the strain and cope with additional disappointment (hard losses). Although they had a brief rivalry (McEnroe was relatively new, while Borg was highly established), Johnny Mac really respected and admired Borg, and Borg saw Mac as a friend.


They are still very close friends today. Bjorn did observe how “easy” and “hard” tennis was for McEnroe, given his upbringing, health, and other external circumstances, as well as the demands he placed on himself. If it’s true, a new movie called “McEnroe vs. Borg” will probably provide a better response to your query. It’s scheduled for release in September 2017. My perseverance is my strongest suit. Never in a match do I give up. I fight until the very last ball, no matter how far I fall. My record of games demonstrates how many supposedly irretrievable losses I have transformed into wins.”
