Score: 6-1, 6-1, 6-2 (22 games) The match lasted 1 hour 20 minutes. McEnroe had 9 aces and 0 doubles. Connors had 0 aces and 5 doubles. (NBC gave McEnroe 11 aces because they counted two serves nicked by Connors' racquet). McEnroe made 25 winners apart from service: 7 FH, 9 BH, 4 FHV, 2 BHV, 3 overheads. Connors made 12 winners apart from service: 2 FH, 6 BH, 3 FHV, 1 BHV, 0 overheads. (Near the end of the match, NBC gave McEnroe 33 total winners, or 22 if you subtract the aces they gave him. I had him already at 23. The same with Connors: they had given him 11 winners with no aces, while I had him already at 12). McEnroe's winners by set: 6, 9, 10 Connors' winners by set: 4, 6, 2 Strangely, both men had about twice as many winners from ground strokes than from volleys/overheads. McEnroe would have had more volley winners if Connors had returned more serves and approaches. I did not mark down any of McEnroe's winners as drop volleys; he won the match essentially with power. McEnroe made 7 service return winners (six off second serves), four of them passes. He made 5 other passes (4 BH), plus 2 lobs (1 BH). Connors made 2 service return winners, one from each wing, both off McEnroe’s first serve, both passes. He made 5 other passes (4 BH) and no lobs. Before the final game, NBC put McEnroe at 2 unforced errors, Connors at 14. McEnroe held in all 11 of his service games and never faced a break point, or even deuce. He broke Connors 7 out of 11 possible times. McEnroe gave up 11 points on serve and won 83 out of 125 points overall (or 66%). At 1-5 in the second set, McEnroe had won 80% of his first-serve points, Connors just 51% (per NBC). At love-2 in the second, McEnroe had won 16 of 27 approaches, Connors 4 of 10 (per NBC).
