Toni: "In terms of records Nadal's better than Borg but I think Borg is better"

Toni at it again. Via Argentine journo @FerGrisolia (using Google Translate):

Quote:
Rafael numbers exceeded those of Borg, but my feeling is that the Swede is better. When I saw Borg play, seemed unbeatable. On the other hand Rafel seems beatable to me.
Give it up Toni! Toni was clearly a Borg-tard in his youth - always going on about what it was like to watch Borg play. He's never going to feel the same about his nephew I expect.

Seems Toni is a bit more realistic on his nephew than non-related tards.

Typical nadal camp shit talk. Always putting nadal down. Always lowering expectations/pressure.

Nadal is the greatest of all time on clay.

They're both at 11 slams right? Borg's Wimbledon pedigree gives him the edge, even though he didn't win the USO. AO was not as prestigious in his time so you can't fault him for not playing it.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Re: Toni: "In terms of records Nadal's better than Borg but I think Borg is better"

ah Borg. I started watching tennis because of him when I was 12 yo... memories. My only true hero. I was devastated and depressed when he retired so young. He was more popular than some rock stars. If he had just bothered to play the AO, if he had kept playing for a few more years, he would've ended up with many more slams. if, if, if ... Sorry about my little tirade about Borg .

now, what uncle Toni is saying is actually true

that's because he knows deep in his mind that rafael's achievements have been made in a weak era.

nadal would struggle to get to the RG QF in Borg's era. In fact, he would even struggle playing the game with a wooden racquet.

On clay Nadal is better than Borg. Outside of clay Borg was better. I expect Nadal to end with at least 8 RGs. But Borg won 5 Wimbledon titles and many titles on indoor carpet. Overall Borg was the better player. Nadal will go down in history as the clay GOAT.

Yes, Nadal is the clay goat, but Borg was an overall better player. For now.

Winning 6 Roland Garros and 5 Wimbledons (in a row) during those years is one of the most impressive achievements in the open era.
