lets not furnish the "Edjokulons" with too much hope arkulari. they are all collectively wetting their beds as it is.
True, we are having wet dreams on the road to clay glory for the falconater. It's the nadaltards who are having to wear their diapers at night.

Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!" Either you get him or you don't!
So, with qualifying, Borg won 4 matches at Monte Carlos that year? Rafa will probably do the same...
Nadal would breeze through the qualfiers of today however, this comparison is not a very good one.
I don't see anyone stopping Nadal from reaching the final but this thread is a bit strange.
Nadal is much more focused on records than Borg and appears more directed and advised by his team than Borg. Of course this comparison is not even really appropriate besides age and some/accomplishments because Borg did not have QUITE the dominance in this tournament that Nadal does.
when you have won it what? 7 times in a row you have an extraordinary confidence, something Borg definitely didn't quite have to hold onto in 1982...
different record/confidence position and certainly different levels of passion for the game...
<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3
there were no real clay records to aim at at that time.....open era was just beginning when borg entered......
records are typical of our time because they are part of the modern business.
Borg was as dominant as Nadal on clay, just didn't commit as much.
But in that Monte-Carlo 1982 tournament anyway Borg was there like a tourist, nothing like Nadal.
PS : I exaggerated, they have some common points as players on clay, I mean the spin, no errors, the physical strength ... but they are very different in other ways, especially very different persons are "Iceborg" and "the Bull"
