Leo Borg, the son of former World No. 1 Bjorn Borg, has received a wild card into qualifying at next month’s AnyTech365 Andalucia Open, with the main draw scheduled for 5-11 April in Marbella.
The 17-year-old Swede has also been awarded a main draw wild card into an ATP Challenger Tour event at the same venue the week before. The tournaments will be played at Club de Tennis Puente Romano, which opened in 1979 under the management of Bjorn Borg as part of Hotel Puente Romano.

Leo made his professional debut last February at an ATP Challenger Tour event in Bergamo, Italy, where he lost against former World No. 1 Chun-hsin Tseng. The Swede is now the No. 12 junior in the world after winning a Grade 1 tournament in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
Borg posted on social media last year that he spent three weeks training at the Rafa Nadal Academy by Movistar.
