It's been decades since the rivalry between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe gripped the tennis world.

However, even today, their names still resonate with fans of the sport. Now, the two tennis legends will continue their legendary rivalry at the Laver Cup 2023 in Vancouver as the two legends are set to continue as captains of Team Europe and Team World.

Despite their vastly different playing styles and temperaments, they managed to establish one of the most storied rivalries in the sport, and tennis fans were spellbound by their epic matches.

The two tennis icons have been captains of their respective Laver Cup teams since 2017. However, last year's tournament in London marked a significant turning point. Borg's Team Europe lost for the first time in history as McEnroe led Team World to their first win.

As we approach the Laver Cup 2023 in Vancouver, anticipation for the latest installment of this great rivalry is building. Will Borg's Team Europe continue their dominance, or will McEnroe and his team finally emerge victorious?

“We’d come agonizingly close to victory over the years but could never quite get across the finish line. But we kept battling, we had great team spirit and it was just awesome when we won the Laver Cup last year in London.”

John McEnroe

“It’s been a privilege to have been involved in the Laver Cup from the very start. I’ve been lucky to have had such incredible champions play for Team Europe over the years and we’ve enjoyed a lot of success, but we’ll have a battle on our hands in Vancouver that’s for sure.”
