    Background: As Bjorn Borg's battle with the international tennis authorities goes on, the five-times Wimbledon champion continues his daily practice on Monte Carlo, where he and his wife, Mariana, have a home. Borg will not agree to compete in a set number of grand prix tournaments this year, a move which has angered tennis authorities. He must play in qualifying tournaments for the major events that he plans to enter, including Wimbledon and the French Open. The Swede has still not confirmed that he will appear in the qualifying tournament but gave a clue this week, when he agreed to play in an international tournament in Lisbon later this month (25 & 26 March). At the Monte Carlo Country Club, Borg played several practice matches on Tuesday (16 March), watched by his father, Rune, and his coach Lennart Bergelin.
