On US faster clay only Connors defeated Borg and that is due to the extremely bold and agressive all court attack that middle 70 Connors was able to play consistently and with unmatched confidence,as well as har tru being a bit
faster than red clay
Connors was at his peak in the mid 70's....Borg had not yet found out how to consistently beat him...on har tru, Connors was quite formidable.
