Give me the Bjorn Borg & John Mc Enro final any time of day/night and i'll watch it again
In my life i have never seen anything getting close to it
TBH this was the match that got me hooked to tennis

I think it was 1975, tv was a luxury
I watched it from a shop window in Station Rd Parow
Wow! time sure flies :ohmy:

I think it was the 1980 final and yes it had everything

Don't Mess With The Townies.

Didn't Becker beat a South African player in one of the finals.

Kevin Curran
He really choked up that day

You could be right about 1980
My memory not what it used to be :unsure:

Taking some of the 17/20 on Tomic to beat Mischa Zverev. Tomic has a good record for a lower ranked player at Wimbledon and could have to much fire power for Zverev.

A few decades ago the girls played on the Friday, on the eve of the "July", and the boys played on Saturday of the "July".
Then they changed the girls day to the Saturday and the boys to the Sunday after the "July". Now I see the finals are scheduled two weeks after the "July". I guess it's called "development".

Not a bad bet. I see they have met once for a Tomic 6-3 6-2 win on grass this year .

Hope he can improve. Not a great first set.

Hard luck thats the way it goes sometimes . Looking forward to the later rounds. I think you mentioned Kevin Curren earlier a good friend of mine now and a useful senior golfer plays off a 3 hdc . cheers

Yes never played as well as I hoped he would. But at least I have no excuses he was beaten by a better player on the day. Hate doing my money but pleased I am not betting on Horse Racing when I look at the shambles at Kenilworth today.
