Borg Keeping Wimbledon Trophies
Björn Borg has decided not to sell his five replica Wimbledon trophies and two racquets he used during his winning streak at the tournament.
Borg had said he was putting the items up for sale because he and his family needed long-term financial security.
On Monday he said, ”After great consideration and reasoning, I have decided that I will never sell my Wimbledon trophies and racquets and I have withdrawn them from sale.”
He added, ”I now realise how closely connected they are to my success as Wimbledon’s winner in 1976-80 and this revelation has caused me to reconsider my earlier intention to sell them.”
