Sport Academy guide to tennis legends
Borg, Navratilova and McEnroe
Ever wondered why people talk so highly of Bjorn Borg, Martina Navratilova or John McEnroe?

People often talk about tennis legends. But what makes one?

Is it just an ability to win again and again or an instinct to entertain the crowd?

Sporting legends leave their mark. They take their sport onto another level or produce moments which people never forget.
