I just counted 17 aces in his '83 W match, plus 14 in this one, I'm thinking he may be underrated in this aspect of his game. just an fyi, this was a match that has a memorable Connors-Mac confrontation near the end of the 1st set that still gets replayed today. Mac had a lengthy argument with the umpire, as he was walking for the changeover, Connors started saying something to him. Couldn't catch all of it, but Mac avoided eyecontact & yelled, "no way!' as walking by him. Connors then continued, standing right in front of Mac, shaking his finger, & finished what he was saying with, "just keep your mouth shut." Early in the second, Mac again questioned a call, Connors said something to him from across the net, Mac replied, "since when do you start talking to players? lets just play the match." Connors, pointing with his racquet, "You play the match" Mac, "Like you've never questioned a call before" The umpire looked suitably stressed. At the end of the match, John Barrett, the commentator, said it was "one of the greatest exhibitions of power tennis this court has seen" & that "for sheer sustained aggression ranks along the '77 SF between Borg & Gerulaitis."
