Vilas is a great player but you have to wonder if Borg played the other 3 majors he won (besides 77 U.S Open) and had been able and able to reach Vilas at the 77 U.S Open, if Vilas would be sitting on 0 majors today? Which would be a shame for such a great player, but could easily have been the case.
