Federer is stuck in an absolute classic against Anderson.

On a recent plane ride I watched Borg vs. McEnroe, about the epic 1980 Wimbledon playoff.

It was reasonably diverting, with Shia LaBeouf turning in a particularly good performance:

i watched the same movie flying to England. I thought the guy who played Borg was outstanding, and his relationship with his coach was quite moving.

Shia put in a strong performance as McEnroe, but I found it difficult to see past Shia in a headband. I loved the way everyone was smoking (even some athletes). A different era.
