Description
'Legends of Wimbledon - John McEnroe’ is a new, different and fascinating profile about one of Wimbledon’s most famous sons.

In 1977, McEnroe, a brash and brilliant teenager, impressed everyone with his Wimbledon semi-final appearance at his first Championships - a remarkable achievement for an 18-year-old qualifier.

In 1980 McEnroe met Bjorn Borg in the Gentlemen’s Final for what is still considered to be one of Wimbledon’s finest ever matches. The New Yorker narrowly lost, but gained the respect he coveted and later that year became the world’s number one player. The following year saw McEnroe and Borg again in the Final, but it was the American’s turn to triumph in spectacular style and gain the first of his three Championship victories.

1982 saw McEnroe play Jimmy Connors in the Final and it was during this match that the catchphrase ‘You cannot be serious’ was born.

The programme also includes interviews with Peter Fleming, McEnroe’s doubles partner, former umpire David Mercer and the BBC commentator John Barrett, who will discuss McEnroe’s new role as courtside commentator.

‘Legends of Wimbledon - John McEnroe’ is a thrilling insight into one of the world’s most talented, popular and controversial tennis players.

Originally produced in 1998, and approved by the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club.
