It is interesting to think how many slams Borg, Connors and McEnroe would have won had they played in an era when the grand slam count actually mattered, with 4 equally important slams that offered proper prize money compared to other events. It's laughable that many people on here only (and wrongly) judge their careers based on the no. of slams they won and ignore the context of that era.

Also with Borg, a modern day surface distribution with slower grass, slower outdoor hard courts (there weren't any big tournaments on slow hard courts in his era) and slower indoor courts would have suited him a hell of a lot more than the surface distribution of his era.
