Borg McEnroe



Inspired by real events.

Silence, thanks. Silence.

Tennis uses the language of life.

Advantage, error, breakage.

Every match is

life in miniature.

Andre Agassi.

Center Court in Wimbledon, -

- where the world's top two players,

Bjrn Borg and John McEnroe, -

- to meet immediately.

It is the perfect showdown.

The backline player against the net runner.

The polar bear against the butcher's dog.

in line and goes after his fifth.

Wimbledon finals 1980.

Bjrn Borg is number one on

the world rankings in tennis.

- and chases his first

Wimbledon title.

- McEnroe is up!

- and the two men forever.

Silence, thanks.

Key set. Borg server.

BORGS WORST MARERID Okay? That was all.

Thanks. Amedou.

It is Swedish.

then I'm Prince Albert.

Yes it is...

An ordinary job.

- Where in the world have you been?

- I went home.

- Has something happened?

- Time just ran out of me.

Have you packed your bag?

Of course.



Come down and look at it!

Shut up!

When you make such an order,

it is clear we will protest.

And I want to shoot the audience.

Gu the hell was it inside!

Please continue playing, Mr.


Has any judicial error been committed

today? Answer my question.

Answer my question!

The New York Times

describes him as -

- The worst representative of

American values since Al Capone.

Ladies and gentlemen,

John McEnroe.

Did you get anybody

out of the box, John?

Not as far as I know. Not yet.

I like you, John.

And in three days, go to

London to play Wimbledon.

Everyone talks about Bjrn Borg's opportunity

to win his fifth championship in a row.

And the only thing that stands

between Borg and that record is you.

Here they write in London,

where you are not popular.

Tell me what are you

doing to the British?

Have no idea.

They are different over there.

It is a different culture.

They drink hot beer and so on.

Can you make them stop buhe?

I just want to play my game and

if I hit Borg in the finals,

- They make it difficult to

buhe when I am number one.

Bjrn, how is the shape?

Has it gone well?

What do you mean about McEnroe?

"At home, the press writes like this.

"I can be a nightmare for all.

It's hardly wrong to say, -

- you and Borg are as different

as two people can be.

You constantly mention Borg.

Is he on the run?

We are always talking about him.

It is me to be interviewed.

But Borg is often described as

the perfect ice-cold player.
