The 1980 Wimbledon final between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe is widely considered the greatest tennis match in history. Films have been made about the event and books have been written in regard to it's place in tennis history, but it also defined a rivalry that would become iconic in the sport. This is the only vintage image from this match we have ever seen and it is a masterpiece that captures Borg celebrating after it was finally all over. From a foreign archive and date stamped on the back, this is not just a piece of tennis history, but an iconic moment in all of sports!
