McEnroe won this 6-1, 6-1, 6-2 and played magnificently. But this is something tht's completely overlooked: McEnroe played with a graphite racket and Connors with an archaic tiny-headed steel racket. In my opinion that's like fighting with a bow and arrow against a man with a machine gun. Three months later Connors played with a graphite racket against McEnroe in the semi-finals of the US Open and nearly beat him in a close 5 set match. I'm not saying Connors would have beaten McEnroe at Wimbledon if he had used a graphite racket but I'm sure he'd have got alot more than 4 games. And I bet if Connors had played against McEnroe at the US Open with his old racket he'd have lost in 3 sets rather than 5. Imagine Federer entering this years Wimbledon with 1 of those 1960's steel rackets which Connors used. He wouldn't make it past the 1st round.
