The delays with the Connors bio could mean it's not juicy enough. Jimbo has a lot of colorful background to choose from but by the way he spoke in cliches on Tennis Channel coverage, you hope he doen't make the book ultra boring like some of his commentating was.

adil I loved the Agassi book and liked very much Pete's. The Marcelo Rios and Nadal books are very good too.

You could try Jimmy Connors saved my life by Joel Drucker while you wait.

Is Connors going to talk about his women?

With his hate and hot relationship with Mc Enroe?

I think it was freud who said that the Connors vs Mac relationship was like two teasing lovers that cannot find the true love that his hidden in their souls, thus reacting as enemies...

Freud died in 1939.

and lots of different spellings:)
Johnny or Jimbo, which of the two is more likely to have spent time on a psychiatrists couch?

Johnny is the upper middle class histerical New Yorker and Connors was raised like Tony Perkins in famous Hitchcock film
Both are psiquiatric stuff...but that is one of the many reasons they were so exciting to watch and one of the reasons why some of us miss them soooo much

kiki 11-22-2012 11:35 AM

Marjorie Blackwood, Connors girlfriend in between Evert and Mc Guire: " The way Jimmy has been raised I cannot believe he is not homisexual"
Lovely ex girlfriendBTW

i know we´re in agreement that tennis misses that kind of personality
i can see McEnroe frequenting psychiatrists, whilst Connors probably would insist he doesn´t need one

Les cannibales du tennis by Jean Couvercelle
Possibly the most interesting tennis onlook at the 70s

Right
Connors had old values and blue collar ethics and never took drugs
