A great Stategic Victory For Ashe
Mark Showalter | Gainesville, Florida United States | 03/31/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a classic match in which Arthur Ashe made one of the most amazing stategic decisions I have ever seen. He completely adapted his power game to thwart Connors. It is also a perfect example of what a poor attitude & behaviour can do for a world-class player like Connors. Watch this DVD if only to see how not to conduct yourself during a match. Ashe was a consumate professional, although certainly not as he himself admitted a great talent, but his intelligence clearly won the day and the match."
Classic Tennis Players

"I was glad to get this DVD, mostly because of Arthur Ashe. This is the first DVD that I know of that shows him in a tennis match. I was amazed to see how fast these guys serve the ball - not for the speed of the ball when served but for how little time they took between each ended point to serve the ball. It's a big contrast to the way the game is played now. There was no reviewing of points played, they just played. Very impressive!"

"It is hilarious to see connors' outbursts in this. Ashe completely changed his game to what it took to beat connors."
