Wimbledon, 1980. The rainiest summer in decades. The world is waiting to see the number one tennis player in the world, Björn Borg, claim his fifth Wimbledon title. But few know of the drama behind the scenes: at only 24, Borg is close to the end – run-down, worn out and ridden with anxiety. Meanwhile, the challenger John McEnroe, 20, has decided to replace his former hero on the Wimbledon throne. Two rivals who are forced to realize that the only person capable of understanding what they are going through is their worst enemy.


Janus Metz

Janus Metz hit the limelight in 2010, winning the Grand Prix in Cannes Critics Week with his feature length documentary Armadillo. He had previously enjoyed success in his native Denmark with the documentaries Love On Delivery and Ticket To Paradise about Thai women moving to Denmark and the lives they leave behind. Metz made his first foray into drama with an episode of HBO’s True Detective starring Vince Vaughn and Colin Farrell. Borg McEnroe is his first narrative feature.
