Here is a clipping about Nastase winning the 1975 event. Despite the reporter making a mistake about connors at the australian, it says that the masters was a major event.

good post.1975 was a great year with Ashe,Nastase,Newcombe,Borg and Orantes winning the biggest titles while Connors lost the 3 finals he played...in spite of being generally considered as the best player of the world.

We also had Ramirez winning at Rome and Marty Riessen winning at the US indoors.An exciting year, whatsoever.
