Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith

This video features game clips from some of the best tennis players to hit the courts in the 1980s and '90s. Expert commentary is provided by Tim Ryan, Pat Summerall, and Tony Trabert. John McEnroe, Jimmy Connors, and Sweden's Bjorn Borg are among the players that can be seen winning championship matches and exciting audiences with their unique behaviors and mannerisms. Though many of the featured players came to national attention in the 1970s, most continued to play quite competitively in the following decades. Viewers can see Borg playing in a Grand Slam tournament and watch as rivals Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova, and others outplay their opponents during some very challenging games.
