Chiefs of Wimbledon were urged by John McEnroe to hold a live Bjorn Borg rematch on Center Court. only to receive Court 6

The trophy was won five times in a row by Swede Borg, 67, and three times by American McEnroe, 64.

In their roles as Laver Cup team captains, they have grown close, even though their rivalry was the main focus of the sport for decades.

However, the All England Club declined a request to hold a ceremonial hit on the 15,000-seat premier court at the SW19 grounds.

However, because the grass had just been reseeded, an opportunity to recreate the famous 1980 final involving the retired players was turned down.

As a result, the incident was staged for the benefit of the audience. The two went to Centre Court to play, but the groundskeeper turned them down. They then pretended to smash racquets before leaving for Court 6.

According to SunSport, McEnroe was filming an episode of his show “McEnroe’s Places at Wimbledon” in September of last year.
