WHy doesnt jimmy connors come around ever? does he have something better to do? where is he?
He's on a ranch in Santa Barbara. He apparently plays the public courts quite a bit.
Does anyone know which racket he is using now?
he was suppossed to start using a wavex racquet right before he retired from the seniors tour. i heard he plays alot of golf and not much tennis but im not entirely sure about this. he is trying to get a big money exhibition together with him and johnny mac in doubles against sampras and a partner of sampras' choice pref. one of the current players roddick would prob fit the bill best here. connors wanted to do it in vegas and mcernoe said he would consider it so i guess its up to sampras not sure if he'll do it though. this doubles match has been in the making for a while now and it was originally to be connors and mac vs. sampras and agassi, but i guess agassi backed out of it since his name is no longer mentioned. my guess is hes not too hot to do something with connors but what do i know ??
i thought it was lendl not agassi. sure dont know why connors would want to play with j mac. all he does is badmouth connors. guess connors understands him. and connors does love his fans.
I can't imagine Sampras playing in something like that-he sounds, from his comments in interviews, like he never wants to touch a racquet again. And unlike Connors, who is entreprenuerial, for Sampras it was never really about the money. And he has enough.
