Borg vs. McEnroe:

Borg vs McEnroe tells the story of the epic rivalry between brash American tennis legend John McEnroe (LaBeouf), and his greatest adversary, the reigning world champion Björn Borg (Gudnason), which came to a head during the 1980 Wimbledon Championships. It’s the summer of 1980, and Björn Borg is the top tennis player in the world, dominating the sport both on and off the court. A powerful and rigorously disciplined player, there is only one obstacle in his pursuit of a record-breaking fifth Wimbledon championship: the highly talented but ferociously abrasive young American John McEnroe. With three days until the tournament begins, Borg trains religiously in his lavish Monaco home, aided by his coach and mentor Lennart and girlfriend Mariana.
