The heated rivalry between
Swede Bjorn Borg and American John McEnroe is the centerpiece of a
new film on the famous battles between the tennis greats both on and
off the court. The film traces the rivalry between the two tennis
players at the 1980 Wimbledon final, considered to be one of the
best tennis matches ever played. It was their different styles of
playing tennis as well as their temperament that made their rivalry
more intense in the eyes of spectators.
