1983 Newport Beach Tennis Club High Stakes (CA, USA) august, 3-7 (thaks Carlo Giovanni Colussi)

Connors bear Wilander in the semi finals 7-5 6-4

So that makes 4 wins connors had over wilander - all in invitational tournaments. All in the 1983 to 1986 period. Beaver creek 1983 and 1985, newport Beach 1983, suntory tokyo 1986 - all in straight sets interestingly.
