A top tennis writer tells the story of the greatest Wimbledon, the greatest U.S. Open, and the greatest rivalry in the history of the game

The epic 1980 Wimbledon final that ended with John McEnroe′s defeat by his idol, Bjorn Borg, is considered the greatest tennis match ever. The U.S. Open final later that year, when McEnroe got his revenge, is considered the greatest U.S. Open ever. These two matches marked McEnroe′s transformation from tennis player into an American icon, the high point of tennis′s gigantic leap into the national consciousness, and the beginning of Borg′s rapid and surprising decline. This book takes you back to that amazing summer at the height of the golden age of tennis.

  • Highlights a pivotal moment in the evolution of the game?from quiet to loud, from wood to metal racquets, and from European to American dominance
  • Written by veteran tennis writer and analyst Matthew Cronin
