Swedish tennis champ Bjorn Borg was swarmed by fans during his heyday, thanks to his long and luscious hair and, of course, his skills on the court. “There were girls on the way to the practice court, girls by the match court, and girls waiting in the lobby of my hotel,” he once told The Telegraph. And after two failed marriages, he was finally able to rifle through a bevy of eager women to finally find the girl of his dreams.
The five-time Wimbledon champ married Patricia Ostfeldt in 2002 in front of 130 family members and friends, according to Hello! magazine. Borg was 46 on their wedding day and Ostfeldt was 35. Now, their age gap may not seem that bad compared to some of the other athlete relationships, but keep in mind that when Borg was 10 years old Ostfeldt wasn’t even born yet. Yeah, let that sink in.
Even though they have more than a few years between them, Borg believes he’s finally with his one true love. “It feels as though I have found the right woman for me and I’m now living the way I want to live. I have the perfect life now and I wouldn’t change a thing,” he gushed to The Telegraph.
