Bjorn Borg, nicknamed the "iceberg" for the silent, determined style he displayed in winning five Wimbledon titles from 1976-80, plans to marry a colorful, Italian rock star, according to published reports. Swedish newspapers reported Saturday that the 32-year-old Swede will marry Italian singer Loredana Berte on Feb. 26 in Milan.
The Aftonbladet daily said Borg had proposed to Loredana, a 38-year-old rock star known for her wild and explicit stage appearances, several times before she agreed last December.Borg, who has retired from competition, was married to Romanian-born tennis player Mariana Simionescu. In 1984, he met Jannike Bjorling, then 17. She gave birth to their son, Robin, a year later. They lived together until 1987.
