The Sporting Birthday - Mats Wilander
Tennis: 7 times Grand slam Champion is 53 today
Mats Wilander, the Swedish former World Number 1 celebrates his birthday today. Wilander won three titles at Roland Garros, three in Melbourne and one at Flushing Meadow. Although he didn't win a singles title at Wimbledon, he did win the doubles title there in 1986.
A child phenom, he won the French Open on debut as an unseeded 17 year old, and still holds the record for the youngest winner of the Australian Open.
He is now known for his no holds barred commentary and frank opinions on the game... Happy Birthday Mats!
