Roger is the only player in the Open Era to have won 3 majors during a calendar year twice. The ones who say he is boring don't pay close attention to what Roger is doing during matches. They are probably looking for brat boy tirades and neon clothing.
What is also impressive is that not only did he win the 3 majors.....he's also won 4 MS in the same year, and he's also made it to the finals of MC, Rome, and RG. I don't think any former #1 has done that.
Borg was great, but he didn't like to travel to Australia. He prefered to just stay in Europe. Roger is doing a more thorough job of covering tournaments around the world.
