    Trivia Question: When was the only grand slam tournament where both men's finalists did not lose a set before the final?

    1976 Wimbledon.. Borg beat Nastase 3-0 for perfect set record

    1977 US Open.. Vilas beat Connors 3-1

    Yes, though in the '77 Open there were best 2 of 3 matches through the fourth round.
