It is the 1980 Wimbledon tennis championship. Bjorn Borg is the number 1 tennis player in the world and the undisputed king of Wimbledon. He has won the tournament four times in a row - a fifth consecutive time would be a world first. However, a new face has appeared in the tennis world and presents a serious threat to Borg's title hopes - John McEnroe.Written by
Scene early in the movie when Borg arrives at a hotel in a car prior to the 1980 Wimbeldon. He arrives to find paparazzi & a mob of fans waiting for him. The photographer has a Canon T-90 camera - but this camera was not released until 1986. See more »
You can't be serious! You can not be serious! The ball was on the line! Chalk flew all over, man. The chalk flew up! He saw it. That's why he's walking all over it. Everyone saw it was in. You cannot possibly call that out.

Two different ways of playing tennis and to face life
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.
