Connors was better overall than Borg in 76 though, I believe. Won more titles, better win-loss record and had the 3-0 lead in head to head meetings. What a career Connors had though. The older you get, the more you realize it.

Connors was better than Borg in 76 but Borg had the best year.

Borg was also better than Vilas in 77, but Vilas had a better year.

Letīs give everybody a right treatment
