Tennis News: Bjorn Borg, the tennis legend, putting pen to paper to write biography

Tennis legend Bjorn Borg, who rose to prominence in the sport beginning in the middle of the 1970s, will be publishing an autobiography detailing his career and personal life. Borg, along with his wife Patricia, will pen the book, sharing his story as a tennis phenomenon, celebrity, and father—from his childhood and upbringing to his career and the years preceding it. Borg made the announcement in a statement on Tuesday. “I am looking forward to this collaboration with Norstedts, Sweden’s oldest publishing house. We have mutual trust and respect for each other,” said Borg.

His spouse expressed her gratitude for receiving the position. “I am confident that the book will succeed with the support of everyone we have met at Norstedts,” she remarked. One of the greatest sportsmen of all time, Borg went by the nicknames “Ice Man” or “Ice-Borg” due to his calm style on the court. With six trophies at the French Open and five consecutive Wimbledon crowns, Borg became the first male in the Open Era to win 11 Grand Slam singles titles. He also holds the record for the second-longest winning run, having won 48 matches between 1979 and 1980.

The task of eventually publishing Bjorn Borg’s narrative is enormous and significant. This is a much anticipated book, and Patricia, his wife, is the best person I can think of to write his narrative,” stated Norstedts senior editor Gunilla Bergmark. “Bjorn Borg has a remarkable success story to share and is one of Sweden’s most recognizable international athletes of all time. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is curious to learn all Borg has never shared in the past about his life, work, and highs and lows. “I am eager to promote Patricia Borg’s narrative globally,” stated Linda Altrov Berg, the Right Director of Norstedts Agency.
