    Background: Bjorn Borg, playing his last tournament in his native Sweden before moving to anew home in Monte Carlo, made a good start in his campaign for the title in the Stockholm Open Tennis Tournament on Tuesday (5 November)
    Borg, the favourite, crushed Indian Anad Amritraj 6-3, 6-2 in their first round encounter.

    Big crowds have been following the tournament, fearing they may have fewer chances to see their tennis hero once the 18-year-old star moves to Monte Carlo. There've been suggestions that he might have to interrupt his career for military service if he stays in Sweden. But though Borg has recently reported for a military medical test, there appeared to be little danger of his immediate call up because he already works more than six months a year abroad.
