Having said that from 1977 onwards Borg was definitely dominant over Connors.
I think in a thread last year somebody questioned whether the Buenos Aires exo really was on clay. It was something about whether the exo was held at the venue normally used for Davis Cup (definitely red clay) or on some other court.
