Continuing with sport, Ten Sports has been, in addition to showing its collection of old Sharjah cricket videos, also has the Borg-McEnroe matches. It was a privilege to watch one Wimbledon final that must rank as one of the greatest clashes in sport. McEnroe fighting back 8 championship points to take the fourth set from Borg in a tie-break was rather special. I didn't know which year this was, if they've not clashed in a Wimbledon final apart from '81, then I know the result. I couldn't watch the match to its conclusion because the one nightly domestic soap that my folks indulge in took preference. This day I couldn't complain that there wasn't something good to watch on TV, only that the timing was all wrong.
