    For you Borg fans, here is an interesting story on his son who is playing tennis here in WI:

    http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=581279

    One of the guys I play tennis with has a son who is also on that team. He said Robin Borg is a really nice kid. I know guys at our club were amazed when we first heard the story. We were wondering if he is using a Donnay? I also saw a local TV story on him recently and he hit the ball really hard.

    Personally, I am going to see if he wants to play 4.0 USTA for us! :)

    just read the article today. Interesting to see he didn't do the D1 schools back in 04. Sounds like a nice guy-good for him.

    Wow - he is quite fat for a 21 yr old! And why is he a freshman at 21?

    Read the article for your second question. It's right in there.

    Sounds like a solid, well-grounded young man. Good job, Bjorn!

    So he's got, say, 50% of his dad's tennis ability. I hope he's not got the same proportion of his dad's business acumen ;)

    That is why he enrolled in college. I doubt many of us would be that sharp if we dropped out of school after the 8th grade
    . It is as easy to lose big money trying to make more as it it hard to make big money in the first place, the old saying goes.
