Connors could have, in fact would have, won the '74 French had he not been disqualified. Then he boycotted the event for a couple of years. I know Borg dominated teh event from the mid-senties until '81. But you would think that Connors with his baseline play and never say die attitude would at least have won one French. Not sure how many finals he made, but if a s/v like Mac can come within a hairsbreadth of winning, why not Jimbo? Was clay his nemesis? Any thoughts.
