Ok so I was out by a year . It was in fact 1984 that my last brief chapter touched briefly on Super Saturday in New York, I knew it was some time around the early 80's , getting old, the memory aint what it used to be.
I did get the Women's score right , these were the Men's Semi Final results
Mac beat Connors 6-4, 4-6, 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 , this was the second match
Lendl saved match point against Cash , 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-7, 7-6
Navratilova defeated Evert- Lloyd 4-6, 6-4, 6-4
13 sets on offer, 13 sets played, the easiest set being 6-3, a tough day and night at the office for all players involved.
Just looking more into the tournament , these were the quarter Final results for the Men, the Semi Final results for the women.
Mac defeated American Gene Mayer 7-5, 6-3, 6-4
Connors defeated Brit John Lloyd 7-5, 6-2, 6-0
Lendl def Ecuador's Andres Gomez 6-4, 6-4, 6-1
Cash def my hero Mats Wilander 7-6, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3 (I wasn't happy )
Just for the record, Jonny Mac won the Men's final easily against Lendl 6-3, 6-4, 6-1
The Women's Semi's had Evert - Lloyd beat Canadian glamour girl Carling Bassett 2 and 2 .
Martina beat Aussie Wendy Turnbull 4 and 1
A great era of tennis was the 80's, this year possibly one of the best.....
Super Saturday New York, this year 1984 was a ripper......

      The 1984 US Open featured the above players in the Women's single's , Bassett, Canadian junior prodigy, Aussie Wendy Turbull, American Evert- Lloyd and eventual winner Czech Navratilova.
The 4 men pictured are the Semi Finalists, Mac, Connors , Cash and Lendl, Legends........
