I have it set to record. Its only going to be condensed into an hour, though. They are also showing Agassi v. Goran from 92 sometime soon.

I didn't get to see this but the final score of the 1981 Wimbledon final was JMAC beating Borg 4-6, 7-6, 7-6, 6-4. JMAC also went on to beat Borg in the U.S. Open final and was the better player on fast courts at the time. Funny to think now, but he had what was then considered a big serve!

I know! The crowd was really into it, but the absolute silence from the commentators was a bit unsettling - definitely not what I'm used to hearing, with McEnroe commentating these days :rolleyes:. Was that what watching tennis was like back then?
