What a unique viewpoint, refreshing to see (and nice to see Agassi who's so often underrated around here getting his due).

However I cannot, in good conscience agree with ranking Sampras ahead of Borg.

Compared to Sampras, Bjorn Borg had a higher peak level of play, dominated two surfaces that were polar opposites, did much better at his weakest slam and had much tougher competition.
