Re: Jewish tennis players

Why is Men's 1975 U.S. Open Final underplayed

I was going through Youtube clips and they show everything from the 1975 U.S. Open including women's doubles but not a single clip of this match. I tried to find articles, nothing. The only thing I...

Re: The best tennis match

I like the 1988 U.S. Open final between Mats Wilander and Ivan Lendl. They kept saying that a Swede can't win in New York but Mats did in a 5 set drama.

Re: Best & Worst: John Newcombe

Re: Why didn't Roy Emerson turn professional?

Roy did turn pro in 1968 but he got roughed up by the likes of Laver, Gonzales, Roswell, and the gang. But he did reach the Quarters of the French in 1968, the Quarters of the U.S. Open in 1969, and...

Re: Did Sampras play in a weak grass era?

When Pete puts his mind into winning Wimbledon, he wins it. I don't care if he played against Laver, Borg, Newcombe, Edberg, Rosewall, Connors, nd others. He really had a way of demoralizing folks....

Re: Why didn't Harold Solomon play more Wimbledon?

Eddie made the Quarters in the 1979 U.S. Open. and that was on a fast surface.

I know this is a tennis website but I'm hoping for information about this man named Colin Ridgway. He is an Australian who lived in the United States.

Colin was born in Melbourne in 1937. He was a...

Re: Why didn't Harold Solomon play more Wimbledon?

I think had Harold went for his shots like Jimmy Arias or Andre Agassi off the serve, he could won more.

Re: Who was the better player: Rod Laver 1967 or Rod Laver 1969?

[QUOTE=Echoes;8936530]I think it's rather two on grass (Forest Hills & Wimbledon) and two on indoor wood (Wembley & Coubertin). QUOTE]

Wasn't the French Pro part of the slam?

Re: Who was the better player: Rod Laver 1967 or Rod Laver 1969?

Laver's best achievement was 1969 but who was the better player? My real question if I wanted someone to beat Roger Federer which Laver would I pick?

Who was the better player: Rod Laver 1967 or Rod Laver 1969?

People forget that Rod won a grand slam in pro tennis in 1967 as well. Yes two slams were in England but just like the amateurs, 3 glass and a clay.

Re: The best tennis match

As far as finals, the Mats Wilander vs. Ivan Lendl in 1988 U.S. Open was great. Boris Becker beating Kevin Curren in the 1985 Wimbledon finals was fun in terms of international excitement it brought....

Re: The best tennis match

I think Connors vs. McEnroe in the 1980 U.S. Open semi's was pretty good. It went to a tie-breaker as well with John winning 7-6. See-saw battle.

The semi's of 1992 between Michael Chang vs. Stefan...

Who invented the swinging volley?

Many commentators have said Ivan Lendl. Others say, Illie Nastase. Some say Jimmy Connors with this backhand only. What do you say?

At the end of the day, Vilas was No. 1 in 1977.

Re: Befor Open Era, best player

I chose Laver because he was a champion in singles, doubles, and mixed. I think Jack Kramer and Pancho Gonzales were probably better strategists and thinkers but weren't physically fit as Laver. His...
