    can anything compare to Connors magical run

    You had a prime Edberg and Courier

    You had Cobra Kai Krickstein

    Oddly my memory of 80's tennis is very remote , except I remember the winners

    Sampras 2002 Run was the best I think.
    Everyone wrote him off and Pistol Pete defeated all odds and beat several tough players to win it and then retire.

    2002 was the best run but 1991 seems like nobody forgets

    Also Agassi's unseeded run of 1994 was amazing

    1991, 2002 and 1994. My 3 favorite I think..

    Of the tournaments I've been following since 1976, these two seem to me the most iconic.

    With the people weeping on the stairs.

    I do not think I've ever seen anything like that before 1976. Maybe I'm wrong.

    dgold, The most iconic US Open was either the 1969 one (Laver fixed the only open era Grand Slam) or the 1974 one (an almost 40 years old reaches the final after a win over Newcombe).

    Loved Jimmy's run in 1991. Still, will always remember Super Saturday in '84. Unreal.
