Success on serve in rallies of 2 or more good shots (the serve being the first shot):

Borg 50% on first serve (21/42) and 47% on second (28/59).
Connors 55% on first serve (58/106) and 47% on second (9/19).

Borg is winning exactly half of the time when his 1st serve is returned, but less than half when his second serve is returned. Altogether, then, he's winning just 49% of the time when his serve is returned (49 of 101 points). Connors' overall figure is a little higher, at 54% (winning 67 of 125 points).

Clearly what pulled Borg ahead of Connors was his service, which gave him 33 “free points” compared to 15 for Connors.
