Connors could be genuine, even if sometimes it looked like part of a plan to get into the other guyīs mind.He teased the crowds like few sportsmen (Ali,Nastase,Magic) have been able to do.

I think Connors really liked Newcombe and, a few years later,were on dealing terms for him to be his coach.I also think Newcombe didnīt have too many bad feelings about the spoilt Connors of 1974-75, but a sincere admiration for his unique style of play.At least, not in the way of an Arthur Ashe, for example.Do you know something about both championīs relationship?
