Borg was known for his cool and emotionless demeanor on the court, while McEnroe was famed for his court-side tantrums. Their rivalry extended between 1978 and 1981, with each player winning seven times against the other. Because of their contrasting personalities, their rivalry was described as “Fire and Ice”.
