People try to demote Borg and Connors these days as well, as well as Vilas, McEnroe and Lendl.

Some people apparently don't think that Borg is a GOAT candidate. LOL. This is a man who was winning Rome and the French Open in 1974, continued clay success in 1975, became a great player in 1976 alongside Connors, had an amazing 1977 despite not matching Vilas' sheer winning activity in the second half of the year, dominating in 1978 despite a strong challenge from Connors, even more dominant in 1979 and 1980 despite challenges from McEnroe, and to a lesser extent, Connors. Even in 1981, before McEnroe overtook him, he won the January 1981 Masters and the French Open.
