Team Europe captain Bjorn Borg and Team World captain John McEnroe are already gearing up for the 3-day event at O2 Arena in London. Ahead of the start of the tournament, both the legends visited the Centre Court at All England Club. They both were spotted wearing the original replicas of the costumes they had worn during Wimbledon in 1980.
