Re: Rod Laver v/s Bjorn Borg (Video)

Does anyone know of any other message boards that have postings of videos on services like rapidshare? Thanks.

Oh, and thanks. I am always looking for these - particularly with Borg.

Where is this?

I don't think Borg played in Dallas in '77. Am I wrong?

These two did play each other in Dallas in '75 though.

Edit: Never mind. It was a unique event. WITC.

WOW

Ive never seen laver play, granted he was past his prime, but he did quite well from the highlights against a player who was god on clay.

That was a 38-year old Laver. 38.

Granted he probably wouldn't have lasted as long in today's powerful baseline game. Regardless - impressive.

You shouldn't have to pay. Click on the photo itself in the first post in this thread. Then select the free download option. Wait awhile, and then it will give you a code to enter in the box to start the download.

The WCT match was in 1975. Playing with today^s equipment, Laver would be very tough competition for Roger, Pete, or anyone else. Most likely, he would have a winning record against both of them as he had the more complete game.
