    the difference between "influence" and "impress"

    Dear all,

    1. Bjorn Borg's playing style influenced many other players in his days.
    2. Bjorn Borg's playing style impressed many other players in his days.

    In the sentences above, is there any difference in meaning between influence and impress?

    Thank you

    Yes. Have you looked up "influence" verb and "impress" verb in a dictionary?
