FIVE times Wimbledon champion and tennis legend Bjorn Borg is back at a British tennis venue this weekend – in Bolton.
The 60-year-old will be watching tennis rather than playing it – supporting his 13-year-old son, Leo, at the Nike Junior International at the USN Bolton Arena.

Pete Sampras summary, here's an attempt to match the Swedish ice-man, Björn Borg's achievements against Roger.
Federer's birthday is August 08, 1981, while Borg's is June 6, 1956.He reached world No.1 and took 11 Grand Slam titles, having fierce battles with his biggest rival John Mc Enroe along the way, before retiring suddenly in 1983 at the age of 26.These days, he is more interested in his son’s sporting form and Leo plays for the under-14s for Sweden’s well-known Royal Lawn Club.Borg, now a successful businessman with his own range of clothing, regularly travels around the Swedish junior circuit with Leo, his son with third wife Patricia Ostfeldt.The famously cool Swede started playing tennis when he was nine, entered his first tournament at 11 and at 13 won both the 13 and 14 year-old divisions of the Swedish National Junior Championships.Borg set numerous Open Era records that still stand, including winning 41% of the Grand Slam singles tournaments he entered and 90% of those matches, winning both the French Open and Wimbledon for three consecutive years, and winning three Grand Slams without losing a set (1976 Wimbledon and 1978 & 1980 French Open).
