In the '80 final
Borg had a better than even chance of winning the point if he could return McEnroe's first serve, but that was not the case at all with Tanner's.
Was Tanner attacking the third ball more aggressively in your opinion than McEnroe in the 1980? Borg wrote that Tanner would often take unbelieveable risks.
