The mental game of tennis
Great tennis matches don't just happen in finals. The Davis Cup relegation match between Boris Becker (right) and John McEnroe was part of tennis history. On a fateful afternoon in July 1987, McEnroe argued and discussed, while Becker answered with coolness and arrogance. It was a game for the stronger mind. Becker won after a breathtaking six hours and 39 minutes, 4:6, 15:13, 8:10, 6:2, 6:2.
