Seeing that Lendl/Borg match reminds me again how much more physical the game is today vs that period, and prior.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

I was hoping that was the case as Lendl was standing straight up on all shots and not moving around too fast at all!

That was great seeing the rocket!
