Jimmy Connors

American Jimmy Connors was the best player in the world for part of the decade during the 1970s and deserves his place among the game’s all-time greats. Though smaller than most of his rivals (Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Ilie Nastase,, Guillermo Vilas), Connors’ determination and never-say-die attitude propelled him to a record 109 ATP tournament wins and the 3rd-best winning percentage ever (behind only Borg and Ivan Lendl).

Connors competed at a high level until long past the time most elite players retire – he reached the semifinals of the US Open at 39 years old.
