There were unbelievable S&V players like Pecci and Panatta in the 70īs.great touch also helped them in beating Borg at RG (panatta) and Montecarlo (pecci)
Both also took a set off Bjorn in the two biggest cc tournaments.Panatta took Borg to five sets at 1978 Rome and Pecci took a tie breaker from Borg during the 1979 French Championships final.It took a lot of balls to do that on clay against merciless Borg.I cannot see anybody doing it again.

( Noah also beat great cc specialist Wilander at a RG final, but this match had some different circumstances...9
