Is it Davis Cup you’re playing?
Or Wimbledon? Björn! It’s the perfect rivalry, the baseline player and the net rusher. Tennis isn’t really a sport
suited to all levels of society. Mr. Borg, how does it feel now that you can make history if you win your fifth Wimbledon? No special feelings. This doesn’t feel good, Labbe. The only thing standing between Borg and that record is you. You and Borg are as different as two people can possibly be. Is he backstage or something? Is he going to jump out of the ****? McEnroe is the bigger talent, but playing Borg is like being hit by a sledgehammer. – What do you want from tennis?
– To be the best. In Sweden? No, in the world. How do you respond to McEnroe comment from the *** tournament that all the machines will soon break down? I’m just like anybody else, I’m not a machine. There are no easy games.
But people seem to think so. “Get in there. You’re a star, Björn.” It’s not easy for any of us, Björn. *** The ball’s on the line! *** You don’t understand what the f*ck it takes to play tennis. Shut up! But people… Do you know that I gave up everyhing for this game? Everything, everything in me gets left out in that f*cking court. And none of you understand it, because none of you do it! All that rage.
The fear. The panic…
you might be feeling. Load it into every stroke. In here, Björn, in here. And now, the entire world is waiting
for these two giants to enter. Like two gladiators.
