The only players who you can't knock for not being able to do the above would be players post 2000 because grass was slowed down.
All other players pre-2000 had the opportunity to do what BORG did but none of them were able to do so and that includes sampras,llendl, agassi, mcenroe, connors, becker, edberg. Thats the who's who of the tennis world unable to do what Borg did 3 times. That shows an immense range of talent.
Good post...but Laver did that too as well as Hoad
