Great interview! Connors speaks much better than I anticipated. I first saw him play when he was 18. Instinctively, I knew he was a different type player. Indeed, It was his generation (born 1946-1954), including Stockton, Gottfried, Solomon, Dibbs, Tanner, Nastase, Smith, Gerulaitis, etc., that really made tennis more exciting to watch.
