    Connors’ route to the title:
    1 Jeff Borowiak 6-3, 6-4, 3-6, 7-5
    2 Ove Bengtson 6-1, 6-3, 6-3
    3 John Alexander 6-1, 7-5, 6-7, 6-4
    4 Jan Kodes 7-5, 6-3, 5-7, 6-2
    Q Alex Metreveli 3-6, 6-3, 6-4, 6-1
    S Roscoe Tanner 7-6(2), 7-6(2), 6-4
    W Ken Rosewall 6-1, 6-0, 6-1

    Second consecutive Grand Slam final between these two players, and for the second time Rosewall is totally outplayed!
