Still good tennis !
Will Clark | South Carolina | 10/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While not as compelling and not quite the caliber of the 1980 match - the '81 final is still worth watching. For me, more because historically this was really the changing of the guard - at the time. Though Borg would play the U.S. Open after this match, this was the one that brought him down (sadly). The DVD and the original film quality are excellent.

Classic Tennis Match
Franklyn | Melbourne, Australia | 10/21/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although the 1980 Wimbledon Final between Borg and McEnroe is more famous, this match is a classic in its own right. Top quality tennis of contrasting styles, superb understated commentary, extremely clear, vivid picture. And since McEnroe always behaved himself when he played Borg out of respect for Borg, it's not the behavior but the beauty of McEnroes's tennis, that finally takes center stage. Experiencing Borg the iceman, and the volcanic yet controlled McEnroe at the top of their games, makes this match a pleasure to watch."
A Classic

"As a tennis fan I'm always into classic matches, and they dont come much closer than this. An electrifying match showing the two men at their best. The DVD also comes with great extras which are also very entertaining. A terrific buy!"
