there are so many factors involved like the gs tournaments being played on different surfaces and locations in different eras and different amounts of importance i dont think gs count is as important when comparing players. you have to look at no of tournaments won, time ranked no1, who their competitors were, win loss record, etc.. cant be as cut and dry as people want it to be...

i think borg does have an asterisk for not being able to win the usopen, you may say he was unlucky not to win it, but even then its surprising other great players like mcenroe, connors, sampras, agassi, lendl, fed, even edberg were able to win it multiple times and he couldnt win it once. i think that puts a blemish on his record. apparently he wasnt as comfortable playing there, maybe the noise..alot of european players did not like that atomosphere
