Björn Borg spoke very seriously daily La Stampa, a few weeks ago already about his relationship with the Big 3 that he has already worked with in the Laver Cup where he is the captain of Europe.
Whoever has given a new dimension to tennis feels close to these 3 formidable champions: “I’m much older, but I have had their own experiences, which is why we understand each other perfectly. ” explained the Swede who also tried to predict the season: “It’s a shame Roger decided not to play in Australia, he had a chance. But I also know that for 2021 he really has five goals: the first is to stay in shape, the others are Wimbledon, the Olympics, the US Open and the Laver Cup. Nadal in Melbourne won once, but he could have done it two or three more times ” says Bjorn.
Regarding the next deadline in Paris, he thinks it will be tighter than in the past: “Rafa will definitely be the favorite, but let’s not forget Tsitsipas, Medvedev, Shapovalov, Zverev. And then of course Novak Djokovic whose goal remains to overtake Roger and Rafa in the Grand Slam ”, Here is the scene set according to Ice ‐ Borg, eternal legend of the little yellow ball.
