Borg taught a magnificent lesson one day on TV. Having just beaten McEnroe in “the greatest match ever” I watched commentator Bud Collins interview the Wimbledon Champ. Collins asked Borg how he did it? Borg, stoic as ever said simply: “legs.” Nothing more. Collins had several minutes in his hands and rambled on in a commentary I don’t remember.

Then, Borg, having thought some, took the mike from Bud. His comments were:

  1. I was very nervous inside
  2. I thought, surely I will lose.
  3. I told myself, I must put these thoughts out of my mind.
  4. I will not quit under any circumstances.

End of clinic. Pretty good advice for a lot of areas.
