Connors-Panatta 1978 US Open At the end of this short clip is one of the great clutch tennis shots ever made. It's from a fourth-round men's match at the 1978 U.S. Open. Jimmy Connors was trailing Italy's Adriano Panatta 2-5 in the fifth set--but never count Jimmy Connors out of a tennis match! Facing almost certain defeat Connors rolled off four straight games to take a 6-5 lead in the set. With the score of the 12th game at deuce...magic! (Connors never lost a set for the rest of the tourney and went on to win his third U.S. Open title.)

What a terrific shot! Jimmy Connors wasn't the best tennis player ever--but he gets my vote as the most exciting player to watch.

Jimmy Connors was one of those grind them out players.
