I was familiar of the 64 number of titles though that's still crazy good.
Why only 2 year ending titles though?
a WCT Final win over Vilas in 176 and 2 Masters wins.
In 79 he defeated, one day after the other, world´s nş 5 (Roscoe Tanner), nş 3 (Jimmy Connors) in the rr then nş 2 (John Mc Enroe) in the semis and, in the final, overwhelmed world´s nş 4 (Gerulaitis)
In 1980, he defeated world´s n5 (Clerc) and nş 2 (Mc Enroe) in two cosnecutive days in the rr portion,In the semid he beat Jimmy Connors, world´s nş 3 and, in the final, a straight set win over world´s nş 4 (Lendl).
I doubt ay other player in history has been able to do that, two years in a row.It is almost as rgeat as his three channel slams, when old clay and old grass with only 2 week s of adjustment.He did it three years in a row.
