Gala Opening of the Movie Borg/McEnroe

Chargé David J. Kostelancik was glad to join Swedish Ambassador Niclas Trouvé and distinguished guests for the gala opening of the movie Borg/McEnroe. Before the screening, the two mission heads recalled their memories of the competition between these two sports giants, and what tennis meant to people in Sweden and in the United States in the 70s and 80s. Although the two athletes were fierce competitors in the tennis court, they also established a friendship that still lasts today.
