The ATP love/hate thread

Quote

Borg said soothingly, 'John. John. Relax. It's only a game of tennis'.

There's a fabulous documentary called Fire and Ice about Borg and McEnroe. Their mutual affection is ridiculously touching.

There's a cracking bit where they're a couple of old fellers standing on the Centre Court and reminiscing. Borg says, "If you'd have broken me in the first game of that fifth set, you probably would have won the match..."

McEnroe nods.

"...But you didn't!" says Bjorn in a really cool way.

It's at 1:36 on this clip:



McEnroe also goes on to say how he now says 'I love you' to Borg when he phones.

Thanks for posting that Nigel.  I'd seen bits of it on YouTube.
These two guys are the reason I fell in love with the great game of tennis as a young girl.
I get the feeling Mac is still in awe of Bjorn.

Me too. And Jimbo. What an era. It defined my childhood.

Even before I really understood what tennis was, I used to love watching Mac.
