Fascinating. I think Connors should have asked Wilander some questions beforehand, but then again, maybe Wilander did not have many answers to offer! Connors learned later on his own, and really attacked that second serve to good affect.
Pretty funny that Cash lost two successive matches to Lundgren, at Montreal then at the USO.
In general , yes, the older game was more creative and fun as a whole
However I would say today's guys are more athletic and no one is a fun to watch as roger
One thing people forget was how fast Lendl could run
Not sure if he was as fast as Murray but Lendl covered the court with ease
I remember wilander in total push mode the entire match and he won
If I remember
I am 74 and agree with you
He used the slice backhand almost exclusively, to keep from giving Lendl any pace to work with.
He approached the net 131 times, with something like a 58% success rate.
I lived in Scotland and was travelling to NYC on the Monday after the 88 final. I prayed for rain. Never happened. Went to Flushy and walked right on to the court, climbed the umpires chair and the paperwork for the final was still there. I should have kept it.
