Jimmy Connors’ Autobiography Published Today by Transworld

23 May 2013

Jimmy Connors, one of tennis’ all-time greats, has his long-awaited and highly anticipated autobiographies published today (23 May 2013) by Transworld.

Connors has always been notoriously private. Now, in The Outsider, he reveals his life story including details of his career both on and off the court, and includes photos from Connors’ private collection.

Connors took the tennis world by storm. A shaggy-haired working-class kid from the wrong side of the tracks, he was prepared to battle for every point, to shout and scream until he was heard, and he didn’t care whom he upset in doing so. He was brash, he was a brat. He was a crowd-pleaser, a revolutionary. And he won more tournaments - an astonishing 109 - than any other man in history, including eight Grand Slam singles titles.

Only now is Connors ready to set the record straight on what really happened on and off the court. The rivalries with Bjorn Borg, Ivan Lendl, and with John McEnroe, which frequently threatened to turn violent. His romance with Chris Evert, which made them the sweethearts of the sport. The escapades with his partner in crime, Ilie Nastase. The deep roots of the fierce determination that made him the best player on the planet.

This is no genteel memoir of a pillar of the tennis establishment. Unflinching, hard-hitting, humorous and passionate, this is the story of a legend.
