TENNIS- Leo Borg, the 15 year old son of tennis great Bjorn Borg, defeated Ross Weibull 6-4, 6-4 to win the Swedish under-16 outdoor tennis championship during the weekend.

“Clearly Leo is someone we believe strongly in and who we’re going to work hard with so he can develop further,” his coach Rickard Billing told daily Aftonbladet.

“We’re taking one day at a time, working hard. We feel he’s doing well.”

Bjorn Borg has 11 Grand Slam titles to his name and was ranked world number one for 109 consecutive weeks from 1979 to 1981.
