    Bjorn Borg’s Comeback

    Nice interview except that the interviewer is a bit overacting IMO. Bjorn said he was bored at the time, so maybe call him Bjorn Bored, he wanted to have normal life etc. That he may have come back if he had a team around him -- he says "like today" -- but he felt he was kinda alone. Fair...

    Bjorn Borg’s Comeback

    Yes... but he could have taken a one or two year break and then come back..

    Bjorn Borg’s Comeback

    Maybe I've read it before but what was the reason, I mean not the official reason, but Bjorn's own reason, that made him retire for good despite what he announced there, that he would play again etc. Except Borg and maybe John, does someone really know what happened?

    Bjorn Borg’s Comeback

    :unsure: Agree with everything, especially points 4 and 5 but maybe except with point two, sorry BBW :giggle:

    Can anyone list Henri Leconte's racquet history?

    :-D hell yes!

    Bjorn Borg’s Comeback

    Too bad it never happened. Imagine the tour with prime / young McEnroe, Wilander, Lendl, Borg, Becker, Edberg, Noah, Cash etc. -- who the hell have I forgotten? -- , a top shape Borg and a forever competitor Jimmy Connors. That WOULD have been something!!

    Can anyone list Henri Leconte's racquet history?

    Wow, watched the tournament on TV -- was young back then -- , I remember clearly the black "Major" but never noticed the switch before, thanks! Back then, I remember that Major (now Tecnifibre) had a frame similar to the Prestige, let's say it was the same kind of stick, its name was Bullit...

    Can anyone list Henri Leconte's racquet history?

    Thanks, very informative. I remember that he stick to Fischer for quite a while though. The Vacuum Comp 95 was indeed beautiful. Played the 1992 Australian Open with what I believe was a blacked Vacuum Pro with Donnay stencil, see pic below (hard to say on it but that's the idea…).

    Boris Becker will appear in court this week to face 19 criminal charges

    I do. Damn, I've always liked Boris... I just wish that he had a more successful after-career than he actually had...

    Who had the second best serve in Sampras’ era?

    Yep, agree. Still, I think that Goran had a more solid backhand return than Krajicek, except when he was in the zone, which happened for example during "his" 1996 Wimbledon tournament.

    Who had the second best serve in Sampras’ era?

    And for me, Boris had a better serve than Goran. Goran's was probably the fastest serve but Boris' was much louder and, again, a more secure shot that Goran's, at least to me. I'd go for: 1. Pete 2. Boris 3. Goran Stich coming close.

    Who had the second best serve in Sampras’ era?

    I'd say yes and no. The part that you mention is the very end of the match, with all the tension etc. Poor Pat, I agree with what you said, but I wouldn't reduce Ivanisevic to being a server only. He could do very well on clay too. But I'd say that he probably wouldn't have won Wimbledon...

    Who had the second best serve in Sampras’ era?

    Maybe what Phoenix1983 implies is that his second serve was just as efficient as his first. ;)

    Who had the second best serve in Sampras’ era?

    I'd say that Goran had and maybe still has the most powerful and fastest serve, mainly his first one. I remember he could serve aces so easily... But for me, Pete's was better, no question. His second serve was way better and he could hit both his first and second serve wherever he wanted with...

    Tommy Haas' worst shot?

    :laughing: Maybe not. Truth is, not being particularly a fan of Tommy as a player, I wish I had each and every shot that he has.
