Just started watching the Wilander-Curren '84 AO final(on grass) Was pretty shocked to see that Curren was still using a wood racquet(not the part wood/part graphite larger racquets that were popping up around that time, but a standard, old-school woodie) And was shocked that he was serving a ton with it, to me it looked as big as he served in the '85 W final vs Becker with graphite. Wilander had a tough time returning it, even with his graphite racquet. I read that Curren served 35 aces vs Connors at the '83 W, I assume he was still using wood then? Anyone know? did he switch back & forth? He could be the most prolific acer of the wood era. I know Mac was the last player to win a major with wood('81 US) & I has assumed he was the last to make a final with it('82 W) Its a pretty big gap to have no wood racquets used in major finals, from '82 W until '84 AO. Guess Curren will always have that bit of trivia. Was the fact that he still used wood in '84 considered unusual? Looks like no other top players were.
