Borg Vs McEnroe tells the tale of one of the world’s greatest icons Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason – although, at first, I thougth it was Tom Hiddleston), and and his biggest rival, the young and talented John McEnroe (Shia LaBeouf) and their legendary duel during the 1980s Wimbledon tournament.
This is a story about two men who changed the face of tennis and who became legends and the price they had to pay.
Having watched the pair on the court and the news at the time, McEnroe always looked a bit of an arse, but Shia looks superb as the player, and I’m very much looking forward to this.
Borg Vs McEnroe is released in the UK on September 22nd. I will engage the Borg on that date!
