Would be cool to see their rivalry reborn, Borg beat Mac in Holland

Borg beat Mac?

that's pretty cool. Considering how supposedly out of shape Borg is, and since MAC's been playing all these outback games.

Do you know the score?

Sorry Mcenroe won 7-6 7-6 if Borg is in shape I can imagine he would be winning most of the matchups, would be cool to see them both play after a few months of training. Would really show everyone how truly talented they are even at their ages

that's pretty close. i would love to see them play, given that I never had the opportunity to watch them when they were pros.

I'm quite curious about the seniors tour and try to follow whats happening. I think its great Borg is back and hopefully he and Mac will have some good matches. Just hope they're televised soon. I have to make do with the podcasts on the Blackrock site which are actually v entertaining!

I have posted some links on the "Blast from the past" section on MTF if anybody is curious too :wavey:

This match was broadcasted live on a Dutch tv-station. It was quite obvious that McEnroe didn't push it too hard, because winning 6-0 6-0 would be (in his opinion) disrespectful.

Here's a bit of footage: http://www.ed.nl/video/regionieuws/article1977888.ece

Bruguera ended up winning the tourney (vs Haarhuis).

great thanks!!!!

You gotta love JMAC and his little tantrums.

I have to agree with the older dutch couple, that it wasn't a very fast match at all, but still nice from a technical aspect.

Good to see these too at it again.

Mac and Borg will play against eachother again on the 13-th Nov. in Copenhagen. Other SF is Edberg vs Leconte. Final is on the 14-th Nov. Prize money $ 250,000 ... not bad at all for older guys

McEnroe is such a joke! Even if he wanted to win 6-0, 6-0 he wouldn't be able to do it. I saw Borg playing in Vale do Lobo and he did it pretty well!I thing it will be very interesting to see more from this two.

McEnroe and Borg played SF match in Copenhagen tournament today. Mac won 6-7 ,6-3, 10-6 and remained undefeated in Denmark. It was good match, lot of wonderful shots and rallies.They are older and slower but magic is still there.
