Michael Baz: A signed colour photograph of the Swedish tennis star Björn Borg (b. 1956). Photo size 25.5×20 cm. Frame size 43×33 cm.

Björn Borg experienced his great breakthrough as a Boy Wonder - aged only 15 - at Davis Cup in 1972. Rapidly he developed his skills and two year later he won his first Grand Slam title in French Open. He won a further five times in Paris, yet is primarily remembered for his five Wimbledon victories from 1976–1980. In 1978, 1979 and 1980 he won French Open and Wimbledon within the same seasons, something considered extremely difficult due to the difference between clay and grass. Today Björn Borg is widely recognized as one of the greatest tennis players ever.
