There are 3 videos here and they are comprehensive interviews where Borg talks about most things. He mentions McEnroe, Connors, Gerulaitis, Nastase, how tight he strings his racquets and plenty of footage among other things.

Funny Björn behaved like such an arsehole as a kid that he got suspended, well he learnt his lesson.

That was a very nice and entertaining interview. Thanks for posting it GWH. I thought the whole Nastase-McEnroe tantrum comparison was hilarious. :D

Thanks, George. It was a great interview! And they did a great job with the file images!! I´m glad it was not just the 2 of them talking. :D The part about the Ice-Borg attitude was interesting :lol:
Leconte´s English is adorable :lol:

Yes, Henri's English is pretty cool. I still remember when he made his speech in 1988 at RG, the crowd were giving him the chorus music of boos.

Borg would refuse to give a Wimbledon title for a US Open title.
Good to know, he's still mentally in good shape.

Yeah Borg is one stable guy:p
...
Funny how he was trying to auction off 5-Wimbledon Trophies last year & then we hear that he wouldn`t trade 1-Wimby for 1-USO:rolleyes: :confused:
#
What he really means is he doesn`t give a shit:sad: ...That`s why he quit during his prime, that`s why he never showed up at AO & that`s why he doesn`t care about losing the USO final 4-times & obviously the 5-successive Wimby trophies were meaningless to him until McEnroe talked some sense into him:devil:

He wanted to make cash and he had nothing else of interest.
