That's interesting. Listen to Bergelin talking about Borg's serving practice before the 1976 Wimbledon that he won without losing a set. He mentions that Borg was practicing his serve for about 2 hours per day. (from 8:40)
Bjorn Borg defied analysis. No one could manufacture a man that won 6 French Open and 5 straight Wimbledon titles. - Andrew Longmore
