Bjorn Borg was such an inspiration for me to play tennis.He made you feel
like anyone could pick up a racket and play.He didn’t have that spoiled
brat attitude of all the other tennis stars(past and present).With his long
hair and calm,cool demeanor, beating the establishment without ever losing
his temper.Well done.He truly played for the fun and love of the sport
,when he lost you could barely see a change in that
calm smile.Let’s play again.Really,really admired him.
And borg gets a check of £20K… hehe, man the game has come quite a way
since then, but still one of the best matches of all time. The 4th set
tiebreak has to be one of the best moments in sporting history… let alone
I remember watching this match live on tv as a young boy. Little did I know
then that I was seeing probably the finest final of any tournament. What a
priviledge. What a memory. Indeed Borg will alwas be the best of all time.
Thanks for the memories Bjorn.
20,000 pounds, oh how the times change.
Aw… This is the match that I first fell in Love with John McEnroe! Never
have I seen anyone fight so hard… & I believe I yelled out at the end,
“Next year, John! Next YEAR!!” 😀
4:31 the look on Borg face… “well that turned out harder then i expected”
Thank you Bjorn, for those good old days. Boy, was I happy then… Love &
light from sunny Florianópolis, Brazil.
Thank you Bjorn, for those good old days. Boy, was I happy then.. I also
feel old watching this and remembering the emotions it brought out at the
Hard to believe Borg never won the U.S. Open.
Anch’io ero una ragazzina quando ho visto quest’incontro in diretta
memorabile veramente campioni d’altri tempi, la storia del tennis !
borg….the greatest ever..he was my hero back wen he ruled wimbledon…and
to me will always be the best…great sportsman brilliant player..x
The quality of this video is amazing.
Great match, i became a tennis fan due to this match. I also feel old
watching this and remembering the emotions it brought out at the time.
The greatest match of all time
Have you seen Federer cry at the Aus Open ceremony ? Curse at the umpire at
the US Open final ? Hit a shot to his opponent’s face at Wimbledon 2nd
round after being 2 sets and a break down?
IceBorg was an hero, no one like Him; he was, and will be forever, a
semigod. Thank You for the great memories You gave us. You are, and will be
forever, the greatest tennis player ever
Borg, was an animal, no 1 could beat him in his prime, he was like the
federer of the 70’s.
Nadal??Who is Nadal???
lol they used to present the winner first and then runner up
Jhon Mc. Enroe el jugador mas habilidoso que vi en mi vida.
Borg was the shit!
Borg was a jerk too like the time he walked out on the US Open final
ceremony when he lost the final, never seen the great Federer or Nadal do
Miss Loredana Bertè had still to come….
My friend, do you have good quality copies of either 1978 U.S. or Wimbledon
Mens final? I have copies but they are average. The 1978 U.S.Open
especially is “ghosting”.
