Lendl and Mc/Borg close behind.

Stronger era.

Frauderer played mugs. Vilas won solely on clay.

Borg did not have many of those as he was so fit.

Borg did have a serious "allergy" to New York; I sensed he really hated playing in New York.

I was surprised by the number of his retirements and walkovers, although yes his injuries are less "famous" than Nadal's

his results in the US Open look very good to me (better than Nadal's so far ... but remember that Borg stopped his carreer very early -for Nadal it would mean at the end of this year- then "so far" for Nadal means nearly all of Borg's carreer) : 4 finals in a few years, losing only to MCEnroe and Connors, once in 5 sets

and he won the masters twice in the Madison Square Garden, played two finals : sounds great to me

he was not the only one : I read that several other players had done the same

no doubt Nastase was the only top-player who dare use it

If you look at Federer's streak from the French Open final that gives a better stat. He went 60-1 from French until Indian Wells. The one loss was to Murray in Cincinnati.

He won three slams in this period losing three sets (two 6-7 sets and one 4-6 set).

Thanks for the stats. It's actually really difficult to choose because the longer the streak, the more things that are wrong with it! I actually think the two most impressive streaks are the shortest two (Federer's and McEnroe). Got to feel for Vilas. Damn Spaghetti.
