Cool Icy Borg beats Tropical Vilas in Ostend (Bel)


Since this is so special & also general tennis news, I thought I might post it in here. Afterall they're not ATP, really, but tennis legends.

Borg beats Vilas in Ostend (Bel)

Last Saturday, the Swedish Bjorn “Ice” Borg and Guillermo Villas from Argentina had a replay of their 1978 French Open Final in Ostend, (coast of) Belgium. The 51-year old Borg, who won the 1978 Final with 61 61 63 [yeah, real depth in men’s tennis and/or in the old days!], again showed no merci with the 55-year old Vilas and won with 63 64. for both.

I wish I could have seen this match! Nice they're still playing sometimes!

Oh! Ostend in Belgium. I read about this place in a novel and had always thought it was in Germany.
