McEnroe Convinced Borg to Keep Prizes

Swedish tennis star Björn Borg says it was his former rival John McEnroe who got him to change his mind about selling off his trophies.

Borg told the newspaper “Expressen” that he received several calls from McEnroe after the Swede announced plans to auction off his five Wimbledon trophies and two of his racquets. Andre Agassi also urged Borg not to sell the prizes, which had been expected to fetch up to half a million dollars.

Borg denied he announced the auction because he was running low on money, and said he had just gotten tired of seeing the trophies lying around the house. He now says there may be a place for them in an exhibition somewhere, and he no longer has any plans to sell them.
