Bjorn Borg, the tennis legend, putting pen to paper to write biography

Tennis great Bjorn Borg, who dominated the game starting in the mid-1970s, is writing his story on his career and personal life.


Borg will share his tale of his life as a tennis phenomenon, celebrity, and father—from his childhood, career, and years leading up to today—along with his wife Patricia Borg, who will write the book.


Borg released a statement on Tuesday announcing his impending memoirs.

The partnership with Norstedts, the oldest publishing firm in Sweden, is something I am excited about.

We respect and trust one another,” Borg remarked. His spouse expressed her gratitude for receiving the position.


“I am confident that the book will succeed with the support of everyone we have met at Norstedts,” she remarked.


Borg, who received the nickname, the “Ice Man” or “Ice-Borg” because of his cool demeanor on the court, is one of the greatest athletes of all time.


He was the first male in the Open Era to win 11 Grand Slam singles championships, winning six at the French Open and five straight Wimbledon titles, Borg holds the record for the second-longest winning streak at 48 matches between 1979 and 1980.


His retirement in 1983 at age 26, shocked the tennis world.


“It is a huge and important task to finally publish Bjorn Borg’s story. This is a long awaited book and I can’t think of a better person to write his story than Patricia, his wife,” said Gunilla Bergmark, senior editor at Norstedts.


“Bjorn Borg is one of Sweden’s most iconic international sports stars of all time, with a unique success story to tell. I know I’m not the only one eager to know all the things Borg has never revealed before – about his career, his life, his ups and downs. I’m very much looking forward to selling Patricia Borg’s story around the world,” said Norstedts Agency’s Right Director Linda Altrov Berg.


Borg’s memoirs will be published in 2025.
