Episode Description

Profile of the "bad boy" of tennis who conquered Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, and who also conquered Chris Evert's heart when they dated in the 1970s. Jimmy Connors was known for his flat, powerful strokes, volatile on-court behavior, and for snubbing his nose at the tennis establishment. His rivalries with Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe produced some of the greatest tennis of the 1980's. Even as he was pushing 40, he was thrilling fans with a magical run through the 1991 U.S. Open. By the end of his 20-year career, Jimmy Connors had won more tournaments than any player ever.
