Connors was a better volleyer than Borg, just that grass was a great equalizer.

A guy that knew Borg pretty well, Vitas Gerulaitis, said that " fast and wet grass made up a lot for Bjorn stop volleys", while those same volleys, on hard courts, rebounded clearly and let him be passed ( look at the 1980-81 US Open finals vs John Mc Enroe)
