That same year he demolished Connors to win Vegas and in 1980 he outgunned Vitas for another Vegas title
He completely destroyed the 4 best hardcourters of his time in two consecutive yrs
Arguments are all 90% subjective, kiki. If your fave player fail to win a particular tournament, he is lucky. If a player who you don't like fail to win, he was not good enough to win.
Disclaimer : I am no way referring to Borg's hard court proficiency.
