Sweeping to the top of the tennis ladder in the 1970s, bringing topspin to the forefront of the game and making that style the popular and prevailing way to play, Sweden’s imperturbable Björn Borg was a beloved individual during a golden era for the sport. His adaptability to different surfaces was a major strength as Borg won five consecutive Wimbledon Singles titles on grass and six French Opens in an eight year span. For three straight years, he won both of those events in the same year, a feat which may never be matched. Through it all, Borg conducted himself as a sportsman of the highest order.
