Steve Flink is a hall of famer and a tennis historian. His wimbledon coverage goes back to the early 70's. In this episode of the podcast he discusses many champions and their significant moments from the past. He also talks about some of the greats who did not win the championships but still left their stamp. The conversation is full of rich detail on some of the biggest names in the game. Major talking points include the unique ability of Borg to win on the grass from the baseline. Connors vs McEnroe 1982 final and Sampras Ivanisevic 1998 final get a worthy callout. Was Navratilova the greatest grass court player? Becker or McEnroe - who should have won more than 3 titles? How Sampras overcame a slow start at wimbledon in his early years also gets a detailed explanation among many other topics.
