Wimbledon: Bjorn Borg vs John McEnroe, 1980 final

Wimbledon has witnessed rivalries that have written the history of sport, and not just tennis. On the lawns of the world most famous fortnight, the greatest stars in tennis history have rivaled. One of the most epic moments will forever remain the 1980 men's final between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe, won by the Swede after five unforgettable sets.

This year Wimbledon will be one of the most controversial editions in tennis history, for several reasons. Of all, of course, there are two. The decision of the organizers of the tournament to ban Russian and Belarusian tennis players, then the harsh reactions of the ATP and WTA.

Suffice it to say that tennis players will not be able to defend the points obtained last season. A considerable damage for Novak Djokovic and Matteo Berrettini. Among the surprises, the great, highly anticipated return to the court of Serena Williams, one year after the injury right on the lawns of Church Road.
