Peter did you ever play Bj. Börg and if so what is your advice?
Who's "Bj. Börg"? Ah, Björn _Borg_!
No. But a guy I know played him. A guy that beat me 6-0 6-0 last time we played. He lost 6-0, 6-0 to Borg. And won just 2-3 balls the whole match...
As to advice... Um. Try to hit as many net cord-rolling balls as possible. And add some racket framing-causing-WIERD-spin balls. Put ice on the floor on Borg's side of the net. Or put glue on the soles of Borgs shoes (he had *awesome* foot speed!). Normal shots? Forget it. If you hit the ball to him he will hit a difficult ball back. If you hit the ball way from him so he'll have to run he will run it down and hit an impossible ball back... Either way you will lose
Ah well, just got back home from the match. I tried the true and trusted tactic of "go for broke" from the first ball to the last. It worked! I had a 2-0 lead, and a 3-1! And then I ran out of steam (or luck perhaps? . In the end I lost 5-8, but I'm fairly happy anyway. I won some games atleast!
