Yes. Christian Quidet in "the wonderful tennis history", and Patrice Dominguez in several books he wrote. And a lot of websites specialized about tennis. In fact, almost everyone interested in tennis think Vilas is the n°1. Because he won more Grand Slams, more tournaments and more matches than Borg.
