Borg F/O run (78-81) vs Nadal F/O run (05-08), whos was more impressive?

Whos run of 4 straight French Open titles was more impressive?

Borg won more consecutive sets than Nadal did.
Both won a title without dropping a single set.
Nadal dropped the same pigeon in 3/4 finals.
Both managed to win Wimbledon afterwards at least once.

Whos run was more dominant?

Borg faced stiffer clay court competition.

Nadal won more Masters on clay then Borg. ALOT more.

Borg won Monte Carlo(x2) and Rome.
Rafa has won Monte Carlo(x5), Barcelona(x5), Rome(x4), Hamburg.

Barcelona is a masters title now? Crafty.

Two of Bjorn's RGs - 1978, 1980 - were won without a loss of a set.

Frankly, it's petty to argue for one over the other, but Bjorn was definitely not less dominant.

Borg was more impressive. But Nadal is a much better player. Put both in their primes and Borg would have absolutely no chance.

Nadal is playing in the weakest era according to some MTF posters. Borg by far.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Judging from the results, the Nadal bandwagon is at an all-time low.

Bjorn. Winning the FO without losing a set is amazing.
