Jimmy Connors always mentions his coach, Pancho Segura, and Pancho Gonzales as the best players, so Gonzales definitely had an effect on him.

Roscoe Tanner mentions in his autobiography about how he and Connors went to Las Vegas to train and hang out with Gonzales, how Gonzales would always keep them on their toes about what they would have to do if they wanted to become professional tennis players in the future, such as always knowing what time it is, even in a place scarce of clocks like Las Vegas.
