A family surname. The young man Leo Borg (17th in ITF junior ranking) began his foray into Wimbledon: the son of the Swedish legend beat Marko Topo (37th junior) for 6-3, 6-7 (2) and 6-0 in nearly two hours of play to advance to the second round of the British tournament.
In the tournament that Bjorn, a former world number one and a dominant player in world tennis in the 1970s, won five times, his son began to write his own story by prevailing against the Serbian tennis player.
Leo, left-handed and with one-handed backhand, is performing his second participation in the All England: the first was in 2019 when he received one Wild card and was defeated in the first round by Frenchman Loris Pourroy.
The 18-year-old promise made it to the third round at Roland Garros where he was beaten by Chinese tennis player Juncheng Shang.
His rival in the next phase will be the winner of the match between the Spanish Daniel Merida Aguilar and the czech Vojtech Petr.
