Most memorable moments & players.
Bjorn Borg faces McEnroe at Wimbledon, Borg playing the match of his life. I watched this match on ESPN Classic and my computer, I'm only 20 years of age... The entire time ... I'm thinking...
"Borg is good ... what a forehand "
"Does he ever miss ... my god he's good "
"Borg showed up to kick ass"
McEnroe, relentless, gives it his all, all 160lbs of his body left out on the court ... he's throwing the kitchen sink at Borg ... IceBorg still calm, cool and collected ... wearing that same bland facial expression.
Borg, too good in the end, one too many passing shots, too much heart and soul, Borg prevails ... my god ... what a champion he was and that is why he is #2 on the list of all time greats ...
Pete Sampras, 2001, takes on Roger Federer, this kid is not nearly the player that he's evolved into now ... young ... about the age I am now ... takes Pete out in 5 ... Pete walks to net for a hand shake, looking dejected and exhausted after the young Federer dethrones him ... never again would Sampras win Wimbledon...
