'I think Björn's greatest victory was not the way he came to master his ground strokes, but the change he underwent, with terrible determination, to tame his passionate spirit.' Lennart Bergelin, Borg's coach

i see no reason to explain why bb did not won us open: sampras , mc and connors were not great on clay-they never won the french; some other on quick surfaces; but bjorn was great on all surfaces:malediction? here is name of men who defeated bjorn at us open
mac again, and death threats
incredible umpire error at 3/3 in the fith of the final(photo 52)
tanner and night session in q/f ...
psychological and physical problems in final:particularly:injury(finger)
tragedy at forest hills :who can beat him without pectoral problem(sure not stockton, probably not vilas and connors); injury during one training with billy martin
great fight vs connors in final,bjorn had 4 set points in fantastic third set)
still young for connors in sf
amritraj in 5 sets(last 5 sets defeat until us 80 final)
