    Found this classic Wimbly gem featuring two lefties arch rivals. What a fun and great game lawn tennis was in those day ?

    Connors to McEnroe - "Keep Your Mouth Shut Out Here" (scroll to 30:50)

    Hey Rob, I've moved this to Tennis as it will get lost in odds and ends section.

    No love lost between these two for sure.

    OK. maybe start up a Classic Tennis feature with full and edited highlights would be good.

    One other point. That semifinal was played on the Friday due to rain disruption the previous day. Borg had already played and won his sf and had a days rest advantage over McEnroe who was also playing Doubles. Back then, the Wimbledon Mens final was played on a Saturday.
