the question was the fields that borg/nadal faced ..... you stated that borg's was weaker just like that ... I don't think that is the case at all ...

as far as CC GOAT is concerned, nadal has the most convincing case and probably is , but borg is pretty close ....
Abmk is (as usual) quite correct in his opinions here.

Lendl is easily top-10 on clay. Fed is second-10. It is not close.

As for CC GOAT: Nadal is no. 1, Borg is no. 2. It is very, very close.
