Two different ways of playing tennis and to face life
16 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie tells the story of the rivality between Bjorn Borg, the Swedish "Iceman", and John McEnroe, the American bad kid. They had very different temperament, not only playing tennis but also in their ways to face life and difficulties. Despite the rivality and their differences they became fiends. Personally, I prefer the McEnroe's airiness and instead of the Borg's attention of every details and I support him during the movie. Well done the scenes of 1980's Wimbledon Tournament. I recommend it like Rush to who like sports and think that playing sport is like face life's difficulties everyday.
