Two of historyís most memorable tennis matches on a double DVD.

Borg vs. McEnroe 1980
As The Wimbledon Championships moved into the eighties, they were greeted by a most memorable Gentlemen's Singles Final. 1980 saw Sweden's Bjorn Borg face the promising 21-year-old American, John McEnroe. Borg had four Wimbledon titles under his belt, so was the firm favourite. McEnroe however had shown his potential two years earlier, reaching the semi-final from the qualifying stages. Vastly contrasting in character, Borg remained calm and composed, whilst McEnroe was openly emotional and determined.

Eventually it was the Swede who triumphed after 3 hours and 53 minutes, taking the final set 8-6. Borg had won his fifth consecutive Wimbledon title. This epic final was one of the most finely balanced, gruelling contests to have graced centre court.

Borg vs. McEnroe 1981
Following on from the epic final of 1980, McEnroe and Borg continued where they had left off in the Wimbledon menís singles final of 1981. There could not have been two more contrasting characters, McEnroe renowned for his temper tantrums and Borg the ice-cool and reserved Swede.

The stage was set for another classic encounter between these two legendary players. The crowd inside centre court and the television audiences around the world were not to be disappointed. During 202 minutes of gripping action and glorious tennis, Borg and McEnroe battled it out for the most coveted title in world tennis, pushing their levels of physical and mental endurance to the uttermost limits.
