Anyone know what he is up to these days? The internet search, at least in English, was not helpful. Thanks.

I don't know what he's up to. :)

This might be a good place to ask those who watched it: what happened to him in the 1974 Roland Garros final? He won the first two sets against Borg and then only won 2 more games! :eek: (6-2, 7-6, 0-6, 1-6, 1-6)

Ah but what about his only slam win when I believe he came from behind to beat Connors. I asked about him because a flash from my past contacted me this weekend and Orantes was someone I had briefly met while parking cars as a teenager at a local tournie :lol:

You and your insider stories! :cool:

It's true, he didn't manage to win in Paris, but he nabbed a claycourt major in the USA! ;)
