Borg was mentioned by Roger Federer
Federer, one of co-founders of the Laver Cup, surprised everyone when he flew to Boston on Friday to attend the Laver Cup.
After arriving to the Laver Cup, Federer showed his respect for Borg, Rod Laver and John McEnroe. "It’s really important that we remember it because we have a really rich history,” Federer told CNBC on Friday morning.
“Rod Laver was a hero to us, especially Bjorn Borg, also to John [McEnroe]. To me, he’s that big legend that was able to win two times the Grand Slam, winning all four majors in the same year”. “He’s also the one who went from amateur sports to professional sport, so that’s where the idea came in that we could do something for the legacy of the game and incorporate all the young ones coming through and learning from the best, like John and Bjorn, for example, having rivals become teammates,” added Federer, one of the Team Europe vs.
Team World competition’s co-founders. “I think the first three editions have been wonderful in Prague, Chicago and Geneva. And now finally we’re here in Boston starting today”.
