Things look different depending on the angle you look at them.

While nobody would dispute that Borg was the best player in 1979, itīs really not that big difference between Borg and Mc Enroe.John won dallas ( over Borg) and Bjorn defeated John at the Masters semifinal.Borg won RG and Wimbledon and Mac took the US Open and the then prestigious Davis Cup.It looks closer than expected if you analise things deeply inside.

I donīt care much about ( then) ATP ranks.Connors ended 79 ahead of mc Enroe but did not reach one single major final ( he played the semis at the five biggest events of the year and was beaten in all of them)...
