I thought John McEnroe was the tennis A hole from that era? Connors always seemed the gentleman. I wonder if someone set him off?
I just did some reading. It seems that my memoriees were selective.
Best story I heard about Connors was how he spit into a sandwich of another guy. He thought it was funny as the guy had stepped away.
That’s Jimmy Connors.
Conners was a jerk too.
Connors was the bad boy before McEnroe came along, and his behavior on court improved somewhat, but he could never be considered a gentleman.
