Friday “Flashback” Fashion Face-off

Wow, look at that alliteration! That’s a mouthful.

Today is the much-awaited (by me, anyway) opening of Borg vs. McEnroe, the movie about the famous rivalry and the 1980 Wimbledon Championship. I’ll be driving to Salem to see it later today. Meanwhile, let’s take a moment to consider the era’s tennis fashion. Ooh, those are tiny shorts…

Which of these multi-Slam-winning icons rocks the short-shorts best? (Try to ignore the crazy hair, if you can. I know it’s tough. But we’re voting fashion, not hair!)

  1. Gotta go with the red headband w/ the red stripes on the shirt. Johnny Mac doesn’t get much credit for his fashion sense, but I’d say that combo was a pretty good call!

  2. Yikes! I’m all for flashbacks and all for short shorts, but they’re both looking pretty hideous. Sorry buddy.

  3. i’m trying to open my mind to mcenroe, but borg has it both for the hair and shorts without a doubt!!! i’m just talking fashion (and hair!) and Jess is correct, both pretty hideous!

Let me know what you think!
