This is the first time Borg has played on grass since his defeat to Mac at Wimbledon in 1981. He'll be playing a doubles and a singles match .. I have tickets for the latter. I never saw him play live and though he's obviously well past his prime, it'll still be a real thrill for me to see a player who, as Boris Becker said when he presented him with the BBC Lifetime Achievement Award in December, was the first "pop star" of tennis and an enduring legend of the game. He received an incredible ovation when he walked out onto the stage and did look visibly moved by it. And no, Borg is far from broke I can assure you!

I just hope it doesn't rain on June 15!
