  • Björn Borg is a former World No. 1 tennis player from Sweden. Between 1974 and 1981 he won 11 Grand Slam singles titles. He won five consecutive Wimbledon singles titles and six French Open singles titles, a record he held until it was broken by Rafael Nadal. He is considered by many to be one of the greatest tennis players of all time. During his relatively brief pro career, Borg won 41% of the Grand Slam singles tournaments he entered and 89.81% of the Grand Slam singles matches he played. His winning rate across all surfaces was 82.74%, and his winning percentage at Wimbledon was 92.73%; all are records. He is one of four players in the open era to win both Wimbledon and the French Open in the same year and the only player to do so for three consecutive years. He is the only player to win three majors without dropping a set. He was the first male player to win more than 10 majors during the Open era. He also won three year-end championship titles, including two Masters Grand Prix titles and one WCT Final title. In addition, he won 15 Championship Series titles the precursors to the current Masters 1000.
