Ashe learned from Newcombe's win over connors at the AO the year before in which Newcombe dinked, sliced, chopped and angled Connors to death. Ashe basically did the same thing. He knew he couldn't out hit Connors, so he basically gave him nothing to hit except a ton of dinks and short angles. And it succeeded in drawing out an inordinate amount of UE from Connors. Ashe came out of it looking like the master of maturity and patience, and Connors the student.
