Dear Sport and cinema lovers,
Who among you remember one of the most famous matches in the history of Wimbledon? It was Protected content Borg confronted it's rival and "enemy" McEnroe, both competing for the final title.

As the Guardian puts it: a match between stoic, seemingly unflappable Björn Borg (Sverrir Gudnason) and volatile, temperamental brat John McEnroe. On paper, it was a clash of opposites. But in fact, this film argues that the two men had more in common than anyone suspected at the time. Ice-man Borg, the main focus of this film, was in fact a volcano; his obsession with detail, his superstitions, were all part of the meticulous control mechanism he constructed to prevent the eruptions of anger that so tarnished McEnroe’s early reputation.

I've checked, and the film will be in English but, alas, some parts will be in Swedish with Polish subtitles.

I hope that many of you will join me for this sport drama and maybe later we might go to eat something to discuss our views and to have a chat.
