When i watched the match back then in 1981, i found the first two sets quite unimpressive. But the game, in which Mac broke back at 3-4 in the third, was something else. He hit a passing shot and one topspin lob winner, and after Borg won a point, did exactly the same double winner again, backhand pass and topspin lob. I took all the wind out of Borg. He gave in. Later Mac remarked in his book, that in the fourth Borg didn't even try to reach difficult balls, but let them go.
