Having seen all of these matches as well, I'd say: 1) The '84 Wimby semi was nothing like their '83 USO final. It was much more competitive, but mid-way through Jimmy just really asserted himself and Ivan seemed to slip back a bit (but not like the USO final). It was a very good match, nonetheless. 2)Connors was much better on clay than Lendl ever was on grass, respectively. I think results support that as well. Connors is very under-rated on grass due to Bjorn Borg's prominence, I would contend. 3) '84 Jimmy much better than '85 Jimmy, also based on results 4) Hard to back-cast an '85 RG semi to a hypothetical '84 RG final between Lendl and Connors. Sure, Ivan would be favored and on his best surface, but the mental pressure would've been tremendous. I would also pick Ivan to win that match, but at that point, Jimmy was a bigger task for him to beat than was McEnroe. Shoot, I hope these guys meet up on one of the new Champions Tour matches. Would be interesting to see....bet Connors moves better than Lendl nowadays, metal hip and all.
