Vegito, the 4 players faced each other in the summer of 1979 three consecutive events in France : Frejus , Aix en Provence and Montpellier .
In Aix en Provence Vilas won the tournament .

EL MUNDO DEPORTIVO
Connors no ganó niun partido Para.
Vilas la Raquette d’Or.
-
Aix-En-Provenze, 27. (Efe.)— Por segundo año consecutivo el argentino Guillermo Vilas se adjudicó el Torndo de la Raquette d'or que se ha celebrado
en esta ciudad, aunque en-esta edición se ha disputado como un torneo de exhibición entre cuatro jugadores ya que la competición fue • excluida
del circuito del Grand Prix por pagar garantías a las principales estrellas, entre ellas a Vilas.
En su camino hacia la final, Vilas se impuso primero al norteamericano John McEnroe por 6-3,3-6,7-5 y en el encuentro final dominó al rumano lije
Nastase por 6-3,6-3.
Lo más destacado de la competición ha sido la mala actuación de Jimmy Connors. Primero per dió con fila Nastase en tres sets y n la luche por el
tercer y cuarto puesto lo volvió a hacer con John McEnroe (que ya le batió hace tres días en la final de la exhibición de Frejus) por 6-3, 6-3.

I don´t know. I´m finding different information in different sources! If this is from 1979, then the uploader made an error in the title; maybe because Vilas and Connors played in Frejus in 1980 too. But it looks like it is from 1979, in basis of Vilas clothes.

Funny. I can tell by the clothes as well. Only with me it's Connors. He wore that shirt in 1978 and 1979, but not 1980, to my knowledge.
