    Points won by each set: 90-65 | 33-29, 29-18, 28-18 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    11 % Borg – 8 of 72
    15 % Gerulaitis – 13 of 83

    Gerulaitis improved in the 1st set from *1:5 to 4:5* (30/0). As I write it, Borg & Gerulaitis have the most lopsided H2H record in the Open Era: 17-0 (Lendl vs Mayotte, too). After that final it was 16-0 for the Swede.

    Borg’s route to the title:
    1 Alvaro Fillol 6-3, 6-1, 6-4
    2 Andres Gomez 6-2, 6-2, 6-1
    3 Pascal Portes 6-3, 6-0, 6-1
    4 Balazs Taroczy 6-2, 6-2, 6-0
    Q Corrado Barazzutti 6-0, 6-3, 6-3
    S Harold Solomon 6-2, 6-2, 6-0
    W Vitas Gerulaitis 6-4, 6-1, 6-2
