Jimmy Connors, the eight-time Grand Slam champion, is still making it big after retiring from tennis. Jimmy gives his fans a little insight into the world of professional tennis and its most intimate moments on his Advantage Connors podcast. Moments fans wouldn’t have access to, players they wouldn’t really get to know without these interesting conversations. Recently Connors invited Bjorn Borg to his podcast and of course the two had a great time. One of the topics that came up during the show was McEnroe’s recent reaction to a picture of Borg and Connors.

Borg shares the funny story of John McEnroe’s hilarious reaction when he saw a picture of his friend Borg and longtime rival Jimmy Connors on Instagram. Previously, Borg said when he posted the picture, someone had predicted McEnroe would react this way. Recalling McEnroe walked straight into the trap, he calls it a “fun day,” mimicking McEnroe’s reaction.

The picture was clicked in Indian Wells, where the two tennis legends met. Upon meeting, they clicked on an amazing picture where they agreed they look amazing.

And what happened next is, in Borg’s words, a better story than we can ever tell!

People were like, ‘Wow, Jimmy and everything.’ And Patricia says something like, “John McEnroe will call and give his opinion on our picture.” Two hours later John called me – what a fun day!”

He pretends to mimic John’s voice as he says: “What the hell are you doing with Jimmy Connors?”
