i think some historical context during broadcasts isn't a bad thing. his personal point of reference does happen to coincide with some pretty famous moments in the sport. he does bring it up pretty often, but with regards to his own ego, it should be pointed out that he consistently remarks how what the current players are doing is equal to, and often better than, what he managed to achieve as a player. and his frequent borg references do seem more about heaping praise on his former rival, and providing a point of comparison with nadal, for example, than they are a vehicle for drudging up his own past glory.
