Yes Rafa's career Slam is a plus. But Borg's "Channel Slams" are more impressive than Nadal's, not just because he won 3 and Rafa 2, but because Borg's involved doing something unheard of today: winning RG from the baseline and winning Wimbledon with regular, frequent SV (even if not the SV-on-all-serves of the past). Increasingly this is becoming one of Borg's most appreciated accomplishments, even more so than his 5 straight Wimbledons which used to be his "calling card."
