Looks like Borg's using a different midsize frame for the Champion's series event in Boston this year....

Nice. Thanks so much for the photos VGP. That's very interesting to see him hitting with a different frame like that. Yes, a Borg-McEnroe match would be great to see again.

4D AG 100 but heavier; approx. 13oz according to my Dunlop rep. Oops, strike that - that's what he said about JMac's racquet. :oops:

I know Björn's son and he is working for Dunlop in Stockholm, Sweden. Björn is getting his rackets strung at my old club. And the also customize them with some lead tape and fixes his grips and stuff. He uses the new Dunlop 4D 100, with a lot of lead tape all over the frame. They put lead tape in something like six places. He strings it really tight (as he did back in the days) with natural gut. He uses a synthetic grip that is wrapped in a strange way. It is like somebody started to wrap it 0.5 inch before the buttcap actually starts.

Great info.
these old (old? they're kids compared to me!) guys, like McEnBorg, like to make their racquets to play like woodies with which they started their pro careers.

Totally agree.

Too bad he's not wearing the Fila Heritage clothes. I assume that's something from his company?

Considering that both Dunlop and Donnay are owned by the same parent company. Wouldn't it be cool if the came out with a AG 4D 100 with Donnay Borg Pro cosmetics?????

Is there a more class act in the history of the game than Borg?

Any videos yet of this match?

Confirmed! I was at the shop a few weeks ago and held one of his frames, really heavy with a big grip, I think it was L4.

none of us would be able to hold once against him. This guy was one of the best in the world only a few decades ago, and a very few in here may even have been ranked internationally at one point, let alone inside the top 200. So no, most of us would get double bagelled, with only a few points (at most) won against him.
