Sit Back And Enjoy Our Friday Night Sports Documentary Recommendation

It's Friday, you're probably still depressed about Ireland's World Cup exit and would just like to switch off and watch something that will entertain but not enrage.

Don't worry, we've got you covered! Our documentary recommendation for this week is a 30 for 30 you don't often hear about. 'This is What They Want' tells the story of an amazing time in men's tennis, during the late 1980s and early 90.


In particular it centres on the return of Jimmy Connors for one last US Open in 1991 - eight years after he last won a Grand Slam. It's amazing to look back on this and see the array of characters and the utter madness of the fans.

While players at present may be of a slightly better quality there definitely is no where near the mania that we're treated to in this documentary.

Hope you enjoy.
