Borg was playing Premjit Lall in the first round of Wimbledon in 1973, when their third set became a heroic battle. They got to 8-8 (in the old format) and thirty eight points later, Borg finally won 20-18.  It's a record, equalled by Goran Ivanisevic and Andy Roddick, for the longest tie break in a Grand Slam.
