April 4th, 1983 Björn Borg dropped the bomb: He would quit playing tennis. It was a shock; even his closest family were caught off-guard. After 10 years at the top, winning 5 Wimbledon titles in a row, “the incredible tennis machine” decided enough was enough. It all started 19 years earlier. At age six, Björn recieved a tennisracket that his father won at a local ping-pong tournament. This gold-coated racket came to be the starting point of a phenomenal tennis career that would change our perception of tennis forever. With Borg – tennis became part of pop culture.
