Buy It, Borrow It or Bag It- The Outsider by Jimmy Conners

Conners   I know I said I liked this autobiography better than I did Rafa’s and technically, that is still true. However, I seriously regret the purchase. Though I have always admired Conners as a player and was thrilled to see him recently in Cincy…I have lost a lot of respect for the man based on his catty attitude and blatant revelations in this book. Yes, it was his book (as he mentioned a number of times) but some things aren’t meant to be shared and sometimes you don’t have to make other people look bad in an effort to make yourself look good. (It really doesn’t work that way…you only end up looking more like a jerk.)

Yes, Jimmy did a lot for tennis, and by God he makes sure you know about it in this book, but it really did not gel with me at all. I was very disappointed

Bag It.
