Murray has made startling progress this year, winning five tournaments and reaching the final of the US Open only to be beaten in straight sets by Federer.

And Borg told BBC Radio Five Live: “I pick Federer, Nadal and Murray to win Grand Slam tournaments next year.”

He added: “I said last year Andy Murray was going to be a great player.

“Everybody was a little bit sceptical when I said that. But look at what Andy has been producing this year.

“He is improving his physical condition and his mental aspect.

“He is one of the top players, he has been winning the Masters Series and he knows he can beat every single player in the world.”
