I know, that there are many Borg-fans on this forum, and my point could sound as a sakrileg to some, but it is real curiosity from my side. But anyway. I don't want to put Borg against some other greats, but more of an assesment of his abilities. My basis are my observations, when i saw Borg playing several times on the senior circuit, playing Connors, Mac or even Becker on all kinds of surfaces. If you saw some other greats like Mac, Laver, Rosewall, Nastase, Connors on the senior tour -some years ago they showed a series of senior matches of older players from Spain with the duo Maskell and Barrett -, you can see always some glimpses of their old form. I mean a dropshot here, a wonderful backhand there, some artistic stroke-production, some invention, soemthing that made you think, boy, the guy must have been really great. When i watched Borg, i saw quite nothing of this. He looked fit, he played good, with elan and will, but there was nothing great around him, no aura, no chrushing winners, no great weapons, not much esprit. In sharp contrast to someone like Mac, who always brought something special to the court even as a senior. Boris Becker, a big fan of the old Borg of the 70s, was a bit dissapointed or not overly impressed, when he played him end of the 80s in practise matches at Monaco. That's of course the senior Borg. I saw him live a few times at his peak. And his shots had more depth and pace than it seemed on TV. His forehand was excellent, his passings deadly. Has he has lost all this since his ill-advised comeback in the late 80s? What made him that great? If not the stroke-production, was it foremost his body, his footwork, his mental power? Please discuss this phenomenon in a friendly way.
