No, Jimmy didnīt attend the Dallas summit, I donīt know if he even qualified although he won the biggest regular event on the tour, US pro Indoors, beating Tanner in straights.As you say, Vitas won the championships overcoming Eddie Dibbs in the finals.Connors had won the 77 Dallas finals with a four sets victory over fellow american Dick Stockton (IMO, the 77 tour is the greatest tour ever played in the sport)
