Comments: Boy I enjoyed this match! The fourth set was sublime! An 18-16 tiebreaker. I was happy for Borg when he won and glad McEnroe the brat lost. However Johnny Mac was on his best behavior this day and displayed some phenomenal tennis. Thanks to the both of them for sharing a part of yourselves and giving us a piece of tennis history that will be etched in our memories forever!

Comments: If you love tennis and are over the age of 30 (that is, if you can remember when racquets weren't the size of rug beaters and serves weren't consistently blasted over 100 miles an hour), then this DVD will be a pleasant trip down memory lane. It takes you back to a time when tennis was a game based on touch, finesse, and grace of movement, rather than bludgeoning the ball with a space-age stick. Mac, the mercurial lefty, restrains himself from his usual outbursts and plays brilliantly controlled tennis, although ultimately losing. Borg, the cool-as-ice righty, is his customarily composed self, covering the court like a gazelle and whipping the ball around with wicked topspin. This Wimbledon is a classic showdown between the contrasting styles of the serve-volleyer and the baseliner. It is a true joy and delight to watch the five-set match in all its glory!

Comments: Watching this epic historical match, one can't help but be reminded
of a time not so long ago when the world was a better place. Everyone and everything from
its pop stars to its sports figures exhibited more panache, personality and excellence at their
craft. In Mac and Borg we were treated to an Aquarius and a Gemini at the height of their
tennis powers. Astrologers would have a field day analyzing the cosmic interpretations of
this Shakespearean play of a racquet sport event. Unless the modern game reverts back to
wood frames and stars with more aura and personality, we shall never see the likes of such
a scintillating Center Court cat and mouse act ever again in the annals of tennis lore. This
classic 5 setter is a tennis head trip back in time when the game rallied as a sport and the
Sunday silence was as reverent to crowd pleasing game \play as sporting etiquette. A video
time capsule for the tennis ages, this 1980 thriller is any fan's must have.
