Borg’s son scoops crown

Leo Borg, the 15-year-old son of tennis legend Bjorn Borg, looks to be following in his father’s footsteps, claiming the Swedish under-16 outdoor championship at the weekend. Leo Borg beat Ross Weibull 6-4, 6-4 on Sunday to take home the junior title for the second year in a row. Last year, he won both the singles and doubles national championships for 14-year-olds. So far this year, Borg has won the iSalk Open junior championship, placed second at the indoor national championship and second at the Bastad junior championship. Borg senior won 11 Grand Slam titles, including five Wimbledons, and was ranked world No. 1 for 109 consecutive weeks from 1979 to 1981.
