Fire and Ice

I watched a great documentary the other day about Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe. LOVE tennis so it was great to see the history of these two rivals and champions. Please just look at these two when they were in their early 20's! Haha. In the film, McEnroe said that Borg looked so hot in his headband and when he tried to wear one, he looked like Bozo the Clown. Bahahhaa

Bjorn was the first real "Tennis Superstar" -- he was a great player but he was also good looking and fans would rush the court after a match to see him. He had that long 70's hair that garnered him a lot of attention, too. He actually didn't LOVE playing though. If you've ever read Andre Agassi's memoir, you'll hear the same thing.

McEnroe was this little, mouthy squirt from Queens who was surprisingly really good at tennis. It was a dream of his to play Borg and before he know it, he was playing and beating him at grand slams.

It was a great behind the scenes look at the sport and these two great players. If you like tennis, check it out!

Looks like you can actually watch the entire film on You Tube!
