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
In the scene where Björn Borg enters a bar/café and to hide from fans and use the phone, a bottle of Hendrick's Gin can be seen on the shelf behind the waiter. Hendrick's Gin was only launched in 1999. 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.

I watched this final. I remember the hype. The film captures it perfectly. And where, oh where did they manage to find an actor that looks so much like Borg as Sverrir Gudnason!! Very enjoyable and took me back to 1981. Leboef is great, but he was never going to capture the look like Sverrir Gudnason did!
