Tennis Greats Head to Heads

So everyone loves to talk about how great the rivalry between McEnroe/Borg was but the only thing I've heard about their rivalry is McEnroe beating Borg 3 out of 4 grand slam finals. So I decided to see what their overall headtoheads were and see just how close it was. I hope history does not forget BorgvsMcEnroe simply because we just see the grand slam final results but not other grand slam or tournament meetings. Now I see this happening with Sampras' accomplishments being overshadowed by Federer's. It takes an all day rain delay for people like McEnroe, Carillo -- the people who create the history in the minds of the audience -- to remember just how great the past greats were and their rivalries, like the one shown between Agassi and Sampras today.
