At the center of the hype, two legendary tennis icons' with polar opposite personas and approaches to the game; McEnroe, infamous for his brash, ferocious energy on the court and his equally spectacular, expletive-fueled tantrums, versus Borg's coolly composed, elegant style of play which complements his unflappable public demeanor.

On the court, each athlete brings his immense talents -- and handicaps -- to bear in one of the most suspenseful events in sports history.
