Agree with kiki. The seasons of Borg especially 1978 and 1979 are often a bit overlooked. Numerically his 1980 with the New York Masters included in January, may look better at first sight, but for sheer dominance his end 70s years were incredible. While Jimbo in 1974 and Mac in 1984 profitated a bit from a generation change respectively, Borg had solid opposition in those years. His European triple in 1978 was exceptional, as were his nil set lost performances. With the AO out of side, his only blemish was New York, but only a few have conquered Paris, London and New York in one season.
