McEnroe documentary trailer released

The trailer for the documentary film called John McEnroe: In the Realm of Perfection has been released.

Writer-director Julien Faraut got access to tons of 16-millimeter film of McEnroe at the 1984 French Open.


That tournament came early on during a season in which McEnroe went 82-3 and won a mind-boggling 13 titles.

The one he wanted – that elusive French Open he never won – seemed in the bag when he went up two sets to none on Ivan Lendl in the final.

The rest, of course, went down in history.

The film premieres Aug. 22.
