ATP - A DREAM COME TRUE


Dear fans,

As you can see I have had the privilege of meeting and playing some tennis with one of the greatest legends of our sport: Björn Borg! I have always been interested in the history of the game and his is certainly a name you come across very often in this regard. So it was a dream come true for me to spend around an hour on the court with Björn.

Upon my stay in Dubai on my way to Shanghai, I saw that a senior exhibition called ?The legends rock Dubai? was being held. Björn Borg was there along with John McEnroe, Mansour Bahrami and others. I asked him if he would like to play some tennis with me and it was terrific!

The tournament in Shanghai is moving closer rather rapidly. It?s great to have prepared for the Masters Cup quietly in Dubai. I?m looking forward to this year?s final challenge!

Speak to you soon,
Roger

I can not believe Roger is in Dubai again:) He's always here. I wish he called me every time he's in town :)

It's great for Roger that he was able to meet his idol and play some tennis with him :) I would love to know what Borg thought afterwards. Does he regret it that he isn't on the tour with Federer as an opponent? ;)

He likes Dubai, as its close to Switzerland and also close to Australia for Tony, he said in an interview once.
