Only Orantes had stretched Borg to five at Paris and that just before Borg peaked and only Panatta twice at RG and Connors twice at FH would ever beat Borg at a cc major

And Pecci beat him at Montecarlo where Borg never lost since the start of mankind
Lendl showed he was the only possible rival for Borg at a short term
