    Background: Tennis... and the former World number one layer, Bjorn Borg, has rebounds from a fusillade of recent criticism with a resounding victory, Borg beat Guillermo Vilas of Argentina 6-1, 6-2 in 65 minutes on Sunday (18 April) to win the Suntory challenge competition in Tokyo. Playing on a court built over the tokyo Olympic swimming pool, Vilas lost his service three times in the first set to ferocious stroke play from the five-times Wimbledon winner. Vilas broke Borg's service in the first game of the second set, but again lost three service games as Borg steamed towards victory, and a cheque for 110,000 US dollars. just before this tournament began, Borg had said he would not bother to enter the qualifying rounds for this year's Wimbledon, thus bypassing the tournament he had dominated since the mid-1970s. This has led to speculations that the appetite of the Swedish multi-millionaire was jaded. His demolition of the talented Vilas undermined that speculation.
