well, Vilas beat Borg in the 1975 Masters but Borg lost that match on purpose, as I said before, to avoid facing Nastase in the sf...he faced Ilie in the finals...and, fortunately, was roundly beaten ( Nastase played with him like a toy in front of local Stockholm fans)
In 1975, Vilas won 7/5 4/6 6/1. I don't think that Borg lost intentionnaly : Why winning a set in this case ?? It was more simple to loose 6/4 6/1 !!
