Connors Vs Rosewall 1974 US Open Here is some action from the third set of the 1974 men's U.S. Open final. Jimmy Connors, who had just turned 22, demolished Australia's Ken Rosewall, who was nearing his 40th birthday. It was the most lopsided final ever: The score was 6-1, 6-0, 6-1. Connors had also beaten Rosewall in the 1974 Wimbledon final in straight sets.

Connors-Rosewall 1974 U.S. Open Final Twenty-two-year-old Jimmy Connors showed that experience was no match for youth in the 1974 U.S. Open final. He throttled 39-year-old Ken Rosewall 6-1, 6-0, 6-1 in the last men's final ever played on the grass courts at Forest Hills. Here are some moments from the first and last games of the third set. Connors had beaten Rosewall almost as easily in the Wimbledon final two months earlier. The Grand Slam tourney remained at Forest Hills for another three years, but the surface was changed to clay. In 1978 the U.S. Open moved to its present and more spacious venue at Flushing Meadows, NY with its hard courts. Connors earned $22,500 for winning the 1974 event--pocket change by today's lofty standards.
