Borg McEnroe (parfois écrit Borg/McEnroe) est un film suédo-finno-danois réalisé par Janus Metz Pedersen, sorti en 2017. Il s'agit d'un film biographique sur la rivalité entre les deux tennismen Björn Borg et John McEnroe en 1980.

Synopsis

À la fin années 1970, la rivalité est intense entre les deux tennismen Björn Borg et John McEnroe. Le calme et l'expérience du Suédois s'opposent à la fougue et au caractère explosif de l'Américain. Björn Borg, alors numéro un mondial, est une superstar mondiale, alors que McEnroe est fortement critiqué pour son attitude et son langage sur le court. Malgré le soutien indéfectible de sa fiancée Mariana Simionescu et de son entraineur Lennart Bergelin, Borg est cependant rempli de doutes à l'idée d'aller chercher un 5e titre d’affilé lors du tournoi de Wimbledon 1980. La rivalité entre les deux hommes atteint notamment son paroxysme lors de la finale du tournoi, le 5 juillet 1980.

The film is centered on the America's Cup series of yachting races and uses them as a backdrop for both an action/adventure and a romantic storyline. It is inspired by real events, starting from the loss of the 1983 America's Cup through the events of the 1987 America's Cup. Several of the 12-metre class yachts that participated in the Cup races were repainted and used in the movie. The boat and team representing the US to win used the name Geronimo in their comeback and take back the cup from Australia. Added authenticity was provided by New Zealand's long time America's Cup commentator Peter Montgomery.
