    Björn Borg is a former World No. 1 tennis player from Sweden. During a brief career, Borg won 41 percent of the Grand Slam singles tournaments he entered (11 of 27) and 89.8 percent of the Grand Slam singles matches he played. In addition, Borg's six French Open singles titles are an all-time record. He is the only player in the open era to have won both Wimbledon and the French Open in the same year more than once, as he won both in three consecutive years.

    After retiring as a tennis player, he launched the Björn Borg fashion label. It's a somewhat 'sporty' label and is quite well known for its underwear. In addition, the label offers footwear, bags, fragrances and eyewear.

    Now Björn Borg himself isn't gay, and that's particularly why I find the following advertisement 'progressive,' to say the least. I think you will too.

    I thought Björn Borg had hooked up with Bjork.

    Borg is one of the all time greats of tennis and one of the last to sport the real tennis shorts greatly.

    Yea, the video is pretty cool.

    You're absolutely right, ErikTaurean.

    jprichva saidThe Borg-McEnroe rivalry was riveting tennis in its day (which of course, I remember, along with the construction of Stonehenge).


    Hahaha, I have to admit, I laughed when I read that. You're witty, jprichva. :-)

    You cannot be serious!



    I think Jimmy Connors vs. McEnroe was better. Let's keep this patriotic.
