Connors was another terrible match up for Jarryd. I don't recall Jarryd ever beating him in the few matches they played despite a 9-year age difference and most of their meetings occurring when Jarryd had a quite high singles ranking. In some ways, they had similar styles from the perspective of both being all-courters who played primarily from the baseline but always looking for the opening to move into the net and hit a volley winner. And both would sometimes surprise their opponents with serve and volley, despite not having particularly strong serves. I think the problem with the lopsided match up is that Connors just played that style a whole lot better.
