He has 11 slams at 26 years old, has tons of money, better looking and much slimmer girlfriend and is already a legend of the game. Noserertards mad because Nadal humiliated their hero on the big stage time and time again honestly make me laugh.
It's great how you try to diminish Olderer achievements: if he is an overrated mug who benefited of a weak era, what can we say about the strength of the clay field where Rafa had to beat the same overrated fast court specialist mug to win the majority of his FO titles.
Borg has won his titles in a stronger era, therefore I would say:
Multiplying by 2 is needed cause back in the day there were many more clay court specialists. Who are the other clay specialists in this era? Ferrer? The Spanish guy who bends over for Rafa anytime he asks? The same guy who's 0-14 against overrated, overhyped ballerina Olderer? Lol, strong clay era.
You have to either multiply Borg's titles by 2, or discount the titles Rafa won beating that overrated, overhyped fast-court specialist ballerina.
