I should have watched this match earlier because it's a gem. It's a real pleasure watching an attacking player (Pecci) on red clay, going "against the grain", so to speak. Plus with Borg's defense, it made for a lot of winners all around. This was very different from the moonball tennis that is associated with 1970s and 80s French Open. Borg d. Pecci 6-3, 6-1, 6-7 (6), 6-4 Pecci was 6 feet 4 inches tall. He came in behind his serve a few times, but mostly worked his way in when he saw an opportunity. He lost the first set to Borg 6-3 and yet out-hit him in winners, 13 to 9 (apart from service). In the third set he did it again, 15 to 10. Borg was up a break and 5-2 in the third. He served for the match at 5-3 and was broken after 12 consecutive holds. Pecci pinned Borg to love-40 immediately with three straight winners at net and got a tremendous ovation when he broke. He won the tiebreak largely because Borg succumbed to pressure and put two passes out as Pecci came in. Per the ATP site (which has been wrong before), that was the first set that Pecci ever took off Borg. There are 7 matches listed, all on clay, with Borg leading 6-1. This match is listed as their fifth meeting; each of the previous meetings had gone in two straight sets. Both men were 23 years old. The match lasted 39 games, but my copy is missing the equivalent of about 4 games. [Edit: the stats below are incomplete. Complete stats are here: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?p=5826041#post5826041] I have Borg at 40 winners, no aces, 2 service winners, 9 other unreturned serves, and no doubles. Pecci is at 37 winners (including 30 at net), 5 aces, 2 service winners, 14 other unreturned serves, and three doubles. Starting at 4-2 in the third set, Borg made 35 consecutive first serves by my count; his next service game is missing on the DVD; then in his last game he made 5 of 5 first serves. Each man served points in the second and fourth set that are missing on my copy. But in the first set I have Borg serving at 88%, making 21 of 24 first serves; Pecci served at 48%, making 13 of 27. In the third set, Borg served at 90%, making 35 of 39 first serves; Pecci served at 53%, making 21 of 40. Borg won 136 of the 236 points that were either on my copy or described in the New York Times. Borg was broken twice, Pecci 7 times – not including two back-to-back games in the fourth set about which I know nothing. In its headline, the Times wrote that Borg had "27 clean passing shots." I actually counted 35 passes (18 from the backhand) -- and again, I don't have the whole match. I have the equivalent of about 35 games, which gives Borg an exact average of 1 pass per game. That’s well above any rate that I know of. The next-best, AFAIK, is Lendl’s rate when he lost to Wilander in five sets at the 1988 U.S. Open. Wilander came in 131 times and Lendl had about as many clean passing shots as Borg did -- but it took Lendl 51 games to do it.
