Tennis isn't Borg's life. If it was he wouldn't have retired so early.
To Cochet, his records clearly meant everything and that stands for many more guys as well - Connors in particular. They live and relive their experiences, while other guys simply move on. Borg moved on - before this year he was at the all-England club only once (in 2000) since the 81 loss to Mac.
Says a lot about Borg's character and his attitude towards life.
