Jimmy Connors has won more titles, more matches and been #1 in the world for longer than anyone else. He had great hair and legs, a don't fuck-with-me attitude, incredible drive and determination and he was engaged to Chris Evert.
I loved to watch him win and even styled my game after his - Irish temper - but mostly Chrissie's. They had similar games: two-handed backhand, great ground strokes and passing shots, intense focus, controlled the game from the baseline and could chase anything down, she was the ice to his fire.
