 Excerpt From "The Rivals" -- Outsports.com
Jan Kodes says that the players often traveled alone to minor tournaments but had to sign statements before leaving, promising to report anything “extraordinary.” Athletes’ passports were confiscated after each trip abroad and kept at a central office, then reissued just before they left for their next event.
Kodes says that he had a splitting tension headache throughout the two-day competition.
Kodes was traveling on the men’s tour full-time when Navratilova started playing the women’s tour, and it wasn’t long before stories of her impetuous behavior floated back to him.

 Inside Tennis: Simply Wacky Part 1, Nastase, May 2005
Bucharest airport was just like any other for Jan Kodes when the former Wimbledon champion arrived to play a Davis Cup tie against Romania in ‘77.
Clutching a passport that was stuffed with all the tedious visas and paper work required for a person traveling from one communist country to another — or anywhere else for that matter — Kodes strode into the arrivals lounge and plunked the documents down on the ledge of the glassed-in control desk.
Army officer’s uniforms were almost identical to those of the customs personnel and as a few of them were pals of his, it had been easy to arrange it so that he was in the passport booth.

 Wimbledon - The Official Website of The All England Lawn Tennis Club and The Championships, Wimbledon
Other competitors from what in those days were very much "Iron Curtain" countries - players such as Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia and Alex Metreveli of the USSR - also said they intended to play, while non-ATP members like Jimmy Connors and the bright, 17-year-old Swedish newcomer, Bjorn Borg, also announced they were heading for Wimbledon.
With the women's field as strong as ever and the name of Wimbledon still a magic attraction, attendances did not suffer because of the strike, and whenever and wherever Taylor appeared he was cheered for his loyalty.
After such a match, the final was an anti-climax as Kodes, already twice a winner of the French Open, swept aside Metreveli, the first Russian to reach a Wimbledon Gentlemen's final, 6-1 9-8 6-3.

Then, in the first round, unseeded Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia eliminated another big name when he upset top-seeded John Newcombe.
By contrast, Kodes' weak second serve allowed Smith to hit sizzling, deep returns, then charge the net where he was virtually impenetrable.
After Kodes missed a forehand return, Smith put everything into a big serve that the Czech was lucky to bloop back.
