Jimmy Connors 1991 US Open Considered washed up, 39-year-old tennis great Jimmy Connors surprised everone by reaching the semifinals of the U.S. Open in 1991 and made the cover of Sports Illustrated. Formerly disliked by tennis crowds for his bad behavior on court, Connors became a fan favorite late in his career. The fans went bonkers during Connors' unforeseen run at Flushing Meadow. His round-of-16 match versus Aaron Krickstein on Labor Day was an all-time classic. Said one bemused tour veteran, 'Jimmy has always been an ---hole. Now he's America's favorite ---hole.'

He's also got to be one of the most obnoxious males to ever grace a tennis court.

My three favorite athletes of all time are Bobby Orr, Sugar Ray Leonard, and Jimmy Connors. Should the last name on the list cause me to worry about my sanity?

Lava I don't think you've anything to worry about. I too would have him up there in a list of sports stars remembering him from some great Wimbledon finals.

The comic strip Tank McNamara one time did a comic strip that spoofed a match between Jimmy Connors and John McEnroe and there was sign at the entrance that read, Parental Discretion Advised. for fans entering the stadium.
