Ah, my mistake.

Taking into factor Borg's much stronger competition -McEnroe, Connors, Lendl Vilas, Nastase- are certainly much stronger than Pioline, Chang, Todd Martin, Vladimir Voltchkov, Todd Woodbridge etc. - I think it's safe to say that Borg's 8 years of wining atleast one slam in a row are worth as atleast 10 in comparison to Pete's 8 years in a row in a weak era so this is just one more proof of Borg's superiority and him being clearly ahead of Sampras in the all-time great standings (whomever disagrees with me needs to beam back to planet Earth).
