Lawn Tennis Championships Men's Singles Final
And so to Boris Becker's 'special place', where he justifiably feels a point better than everyone else. Let's face it he beat Edberg at Queen's, he's not alone in thinking the grass will beat Lendl, and Pat Cash , well, he had his day, deservedly, but had it... Well, now let's just see Boris.

Narrated by Glenn Close
A chance meeting aboard the QE2 between Glenn 'Fatal Attraction' Close and director Jon Blair resulted in their collaboration on this documentary, telling the story of a year in the life of the tiny cow-town of Big Piney, Wyoming. When
Close's parents settled there 12 years ago, she would occasionally accompany her father, who became the town's doctor, on his rounds. She thus encountered a host of people whose recollections she became determined to record on film before they and their way of life died out completely.

Marseilles, the Le Castellet circuit offers some very tight corners as well as the dauntingly fast Mistral Straight.
McLaren duo ALAIN PROST and AYRTON SENNA were third and fourth last year, beaten only by the two Williams cars and, whatever else happens here, that's one thing that won't be repeated. Commentators
