As for 1976, Borg took two big titles by winning the WCT finals and Wimbledon though, with Panatta winning the French Open and Connors the US Open. Whereas his head to head with Connors works against him in '76, he did go 5-1 versus Connors and Vilas in 1977. So, if we're going to use that h2h against Borg in 1976, we'd have to use it in his favor in 1977. If we focus on the big titles of Vilas in 1977, we have to do the same for Borg in 1976 to be consistent. Ideally, all the above is considered, but then how do you weigh each? The ATP rankings do not contemplate Masters tourneys or the Davis Cup.
Bjorn Borg defied analysis. No one could manufacture a man that won 6 French Open and 5 straight Wimbledon titles. - Andrew Longmore
