32% of Ashe's serves did not come back against Connors -- very nearly the same unreturned rate that Newk achieved against Connors in their AO final.

Some others for Ashe:

1978 Masters final
Ashe served on 93 points, and 33 serves did not come back: 35.4%
McEnroe served on 122 points, and 43 serves did not come back: 35.2%

1969 W semi
Ashe served on 117 points, and 31 serves did not come back: 26.5%
Laver served on 92 points, and (at least) 30 serves did not come back: 32.6%
