John McEnroe Says He Wears Bjorn Borg Underwear 99% of the Time- View: 7515 by Prakash
Tennis - John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg may have been rivals on the court during their playing days but the 58-year-old American says that he wears Borg's underwear 99 percent of the time. In an interview to the New York Times, McEnroe says, “Ninety-nine percent of the time I’m wearing Bjorn Borg underwear.
There’s a seniors event in Stockholm, so I try to make sure that No. 1, I go and see him because he’s not really playing much anymore, and b., he’ll say, ‘Come to the store and I’ll give you some underwear.
He’s doing really well. He’s two and a half years older than me, and he just had a birthday. He’s 61.” McEnroe also talks about how he had once talked to NIKE about introducing his own line of underwear - an idea which did not work out.
"A lot of the rap guys started wearing those clothes that seem to be four sizes too big for them. And they wear the hats without taking the tags off. They were laughing all the way to the bank. And I’m like: ‘They’re wearing these shorts that go down to their ankles.
This is crazy that people think this makes sense. Let’s get some regular underwear, three pairs for 15 bucks — we’ll all go home happy.’” The American, who has just released a new book titled But Seriously, also says he is coming to terms with the fact that he would soon not be able to play competitively on the senior circuit.
"I’m near the end of my rope. In essence, my story for the last 15 years has been the continual process of trying to figure it out for myself." Also Read - Berdych Says Age and Years on the Tour Are not Affecting Federer .
