The two tennis stars have a legendary rivalry during the ’70s and ’80s. The documentary debuts June 11 on HBO.
“Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe are tennis royalty,” said Ross Greenburg, president, HBO Sports. “Their rivalry was brief yet historic, and their individual life stories are fascinating and compelling. We hope to tell the full story of their rivalry and enduring friendship.”
McEnroe/Borg: Fire & Ice will look back at their tennis careers and spotlight how both men went their separate ways in their post-tennis careers.
In addition to McEnroe and Borg, interviewees include: brother Patrick McEnroe; Peter Fleming, McEnroe’s doubles partner; journalists Mike Lupica and Peter Bodo; Tony Palafox, McEnroe’s coach; Percy Rosberg, Borg’s coach; former Swedish women’s player Ingrid Bentzer; former Wimbledon chair umpire George Grime; British journalists Malcolm Folley and Tim Adams; and Swedish journalist Lennart Eriksson.
