What was the point in this?

Once again - anybody who is a fan of the game of tennis, can appreciate that Jonas is/was a very good player.

He didnt' win slams, but he was always a tough player that people wouldn't want to draw early. He won a few titles, caused a few upsets, had a few good slan showings.

The only people unwilling to note what he has done, and to brush him off as a "never has been" really doesn't know shit.

If this list was required as some sort of "proof" that he's done "nothing", then it is clear as day who loves the game and who just loves the players

If this was an article, could somebody provide a link to it? I can't find it on the main site.

I would like to LOL @ them including Larsson and not Bjorkman

Well I think Borg won 62 tournaments not 47.

I think this was a joke, referring to the fact that some posters here don't even know Björn Borg, or refer to him as Björk.
