Everyone involved with tennis was emotional after watching the five set thriller between Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer, but no one may have been as appreciative as John McEnroe who participated in a similar match with Bjorn Borg.
McEnroe was quick to comment that this was the "greatest match he'd ever witnessed." Having taken part in one of the best ever Wimbledon finals against Bjorn Borg that praise doesn't ring hallow.
Johnny Mac was so overcome with appreciation for Federer's efforts, he demanded a hug from Roger as he was noticeably choking up.
Well that was an awkward man hug, if I've ever seen one. Turns out McEnroe CAN be serious.
