The 82 Wimbledon final wasn't a classic in terms of tennis, but it was still gripping. Mac wasn't quite the force in 82 he had been the year before. Jimmy knew this was his big chance to win Wimbledon again with Borg absent and Lendl not yet a grass-court force. Maybe Mac's focus wasn't quite there, or whatever, I don't know, but Jimmy had beaten him at Queen's a few weeks earlier. Jimmy was still a threat to John on grass back then. Just not a great match, uneven quality, up and down.
