Leo Borg Progress Update

By Scoop Malinowski

Leo Borg, the son of the all time tennis icon Bjorn Borg, has been making progress in his ATP tennis career.

The 19 year old is currently ranked 760 in the world. Borg last week played Bastad, Sweden ATP qualies as a wildcard and lost to Marc Andrea Huesler 61 61.

This year Borg has played mostly ITF $15,000 and $25,000 tournaments in places like Egypt, Turkey, Algeria, Poland, and Bulgaria. In 14 ITF tournaments, Borg hasn’t won any but he has compiled a record of 16-14 while reaching two semis and two quarters. Borg’s ranking has improved to 760 from a beginning-of-season ranking of 2225.

This week in Tampere Challenger in Finland, Borg received another main draw wildcard but was defeated by the 22 year old Hungarian ranked no. 165 Zsombor Piros, 62 63.

So far Borg, a six-foot, 170 pound right-hander with a two-handed backhand, hasn’t made any notable impact on the ATP Challengers or any 250 or 500 tournaments. His total career prize money earnings stands at just over $25,000.

But obviously the teenager has a self-belief, passion and talent for the sport which is the reason for his significant ranking improvement of 1465 spots from 2225 to 760 from January to July 2022.

    Not a Carlos Alcaraz or Jannik Sinner. Will have a journeyman career maybe with a late breakthrough like Tennys Sandgren.

    George, It took Sandgren six years of toiling in the futures and challengers before he won his first atp main tour match at Citi Open which I witnessed at like 1130 at night vs Sugita or one of those Japanese journeymen.
