I guess these were voted as the best 5 point ever played at the US Open.  Enjoy!

I remember the Haarhuis/ Conners point. Haarhuis wished he had bought a real overhead!

I'll show my age......Connors hit one of the best shots (and it was in a clutch situation) vs Adrianna Pannatta back in the 70's.  I think it was the US Open but won't swear to it.  An amazing running 2 handed backhand around the net post.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Googled it and found this.....the panatta shot was at the us open in 77 or 78 or some pre-historic year like that. cbs used to show it in opening intro segments for the open but i haven't seen it for awhile
i think it was back when they played it on clay

jjw, I thought joostw sounded familiar.  Long time no see!  Glad you swung by though.

These are new forums and you probably have not registered yet hence you have no password yet  :)

Looking at those clips, you really can't compared that generation to today's generation. Tennis today is about power and more power, with the exception of Federer and Frenh Open. Classic points are too far and few in betweens and when one does comes along, leave it to the chair umpire to overrule.
I've been a tennis bum for half my life.
I'll just be a bum for the other half.
