Ivan Lendl to play exhibition match in home city

06-05-2010

After a long wait, tennis player Ivan Lendl has announced he will play before a Czech crowd. The 50-year-old, who now has US citizenship, will take on his historic rival, Bjorn Borg, in his home city of Ostrava on November 5 in an exhibition match. The two players dominated world tennis in the late 1970’s and 1980’s. Lendl made a comeback to tennis after a break of 16 years when he played an exhibition match against Swede Mats Wilander in April.
