Beating Vilas 1, 1 and 3 when Vilas was defending champ.
Going down 2 sets to Manuel Orantes only to win the next three 0, 1 and 1.
Borg at RG in '78 was the most dominant for sure and it's a tough call, but overall, I prefer his achievements at Wimbledon.
"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."
