Leo Borg is one of the greatest young talents in Swedish tennis.

He has recently taken great strides forward and rushed forward in the junior rankings, where he is currently ranked 23rd.

This week he took his first ATP point after a victory in the futures tournament in Antalya, Turkey.

Today came the next milestone in his career when in his French open debut he defeated the French home player Max Westphal.

"It's very cool"

The Swede lost the first set, but turned around and eventually won 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.

- It was a cruel feeling to make my debut at Roland-Garros and of course it feels even better since I won the match, he says to Sportbladet.

The win came exactly 40 years after father Björn Borg won his last title, in the French Open.

- It's very cool.

Dad has talked a lot about his matches at Roland-Garros and told me how cool it was to play here.

He has only had positive things to say.

In the next match, the young talent will face German Max Hans Renberg, ranked 48th in the international junior rankings.
