No. 212 stuns Newcombe

1976

Part-time window cleaner Mark Edmondson became the lowest-ranked man to win a Grand Slam title at the 1976 Australian Open. He upset No. 1 Ken Rosewall in the semis and No. 2 John Newcombe in the final 6-7, 6-3, 7-6, 6-1. Edmondson, still the last Aussie man to win the Australian Open, didn't win another Grand Slam.
