To me one single achievement that shows what an inmense champion Borg was:

I still can´t believe how Borg, 4 times winner in a row at Wimbly, and knowing he was on the edge of surpassing Laver for a record 5 th consecutive title, loses that tie break against his relentless prosecutor (Mc Enroe), after holding so many match balls....and recovers to win...8-6¡¡¡ in the fifth¡¡¡.I don´t think that has been equalled.

He was dammaged in his stomach, had the unbelievable pressure to achieve a record surpassing his all time idol Rod Laver, loses like 7 or 8 match balls in that mysthique tie breaker...and wins in the fifth 8-6¡¡¡
