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:
- I was very nervous inside
- I thought, surely I will lose.
- I told myself, I must put these thoughts out of my mind.
- I will not quit under any circumstances.
End of clinic. Pretty good advice for a lot of areas.
