Thx for posting this Poor Jimbo couldn't take "challenge" after good lob near the sideline at 4:4 in the tie-break

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

You`re welcome Voo de Mar(:>

BTW, the 1975 AO was a bit of a turning point for Connors, & the last hurrah for Newcombe!

***Connors won 3/4 slams in 1974, but then went on to lose 3 slam finals in 75!
#Newcombe @ age 30yrs won his 7th & final slam!

Pat Cash has mentioned how he snuck under a fence, as a schoolboy, to see the 75 AO final without paying~~ cheeky bastard!

I attended the final AO @ Kooyong`s grass in 1987, where Edberg defeated Cash in a gripping 5-set final><..
