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.

Most Famous Tennis Point Ever This is from a men's quarterfinal match at the 1991 U.S. Open. Jimmy Connors, age 39, had already pulled off two miraculous comebacks in the tournament. He would be down two sets to Holland's Paul Haarhuis if he didn't break the Dutchman's serve. Here's what happened on break point...

Saturday Night Live With Howard Cosell Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell was a dreadful variety program that ran on ABC from September 1975 to January 1976. It, of course, was hosted by sports announcer Howard Cosell and produced by Roone Arledge of Monday Night Football fame. It was later remembered by its director Don Mischer as 'one of the greatest disasters in the history of television,' largely due to Cosell and Arledge being unfamiliar with comedy and variety programming. Coincidentally, that same year NBC began airing a late-night comedy show titled Saturday Night. The shows did not directly compete. (Cosell's program aired at 8 p.m. whereas NBC's show aired at 11:30 p.m.) Cosell's show featured Bill Murray, Brian Doyle-Murray, and Christopher Guest as regular comedy performers dubbed 'The Prime Time Players.' In response, the NBC show called its regular performers 'the Not-Ready-For-Prime-Time Players.' Ironically, all three of the original Prime Time Players eventually joined the NBC show. The premiere episode featured celebrity guests Frank Sinatra, Shirley Bassey, Paul Anka, Siegfried and Roy, the cast of the Broadway version of The Wiz, Jimmy Connors, John Denver and the Bay City Rollers (whom Cosell dubbed 'the next British phenomenon'). The show was often hectic and unprepared. In one instance, Arledge learned that Lionel Hampton was in New York City and invited the musician to appear just an hour before airtime. The show fared poorly among critics and audiences alike, with TV Guide calling it 'dead on arrival, with a cringingly awkward host.' Alan King, the show's 'executive in charge of comedy,' admitted it was difficult to turn Cosell into a variety show host, saying Cosell 'made Ed Sullivan look like Buster Keaton.' Saturday Night Live with Howard Cosell was canceled on January 17, 1976, after only 18 episodes. A year later, in 1977, NBC's Saturday Night was renamed Saturday Night Live.

Vitas Gerulaitis Vitas Gerulaitis was a free-spirited American tennis player in the 1970s and 1980s who rose to third in the world rankings. His frizzy, long blond hair made him immediately recognizable. Over his career, Gerulaitis won 25 ATP singles titles, including the 1977 Australian Open. However, he consistently had trouble with the truly elite players on the men's circuit. After losing to Jimmy Connors 16 straight times before finally beating him in 1979, Gerulaitis comically told reporters, 'Let that be a lesson to you all: Nobody beats Vitas Gerulaitis 17 straight times!' (It wasn't entirely true. Bjorn Borg beat Gerulaitis in all 17 matches they played, including a classic five-set semifinal at Wimbledon in 1977.) Tragically, on September 17, 1994, Gerulaitis died in his sleep while staying at a friend's guest house. The cause of death was determined to be carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a malfunctioning heater. He was just 40 years old.

1973 Wimbledon Boycott In May 1973 Nikola (Niki) Pilic, Yugoslavia's number-one-ranked male tennis player, was suspended by his national tennis association. The governing body claimed he had refused to play in a Davis Cup tie for Yugoslavia against New Zealand earlier that month. Today tennis players routinely turn down invitations to play for their countries in Davis Cup competition, but back in 1973 it was considered a big no-no--especially in an eastern European country. Pilic denied he had done so. Be that as it may, Pilic was initially suspended for nine months. Yugoslavia's suspension was supported by the International Lawn Tennis Federation (ILTF), but it was later reduced to just one month. Nevertheless, that month happened to be when the prestigious Wimbledon championships took place. Thus, Pilic would not be permitted to play at Wimbledon. The recently formed men's players union, the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP), stated that if Pilic was not allowed to compete, none of its membership should compete. As a result, 81 of the top players, including reigning champion Stan Smith, boycotted Wimbledon in 1973 to protest Pilic's suspension. The initial seeding for the men's draw had already taken place. Thirteen of the 16 men's seeds withdrew. This resulted in an enormous number of qualifiers and lucky losers getting into the main draw. Three leading ATP players, Ilie Nastase, Roger Taylor and Ray Keldie, defied the boycott and were fined by the ATP's disciplinary committee. Also among those who chose to play were two rising stars: Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors, who each advanced to the quarterfinals. Despite the boycott, the attendance of 300,172 was the second highest in Wimbledon's history at that time. The eventual men's champion was Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia. He defeated Alex Metreveli of the Soviet Union 6-1, 9-8, 6-3 in the final. (Tiebreakers were played at 8-8 in those days.) Kodes is shown here planting a kiss on the championship trophy.

The Hockey Song Stompin' Tom Connors, who died at age 77 on March 6, 2013, was a folk/country singer who was well loved within Canada but hardly known outside its borders. Connors typically penned and performed songs with a distinctly Canadian theme. His most famous tune, The Hockey Song, first recorded in 1973, is familiarly played during lulls in the action at arenas everywhere in Canada. Feel free to sing along!
