9780061243004: The Outsider: A Memoir

The Outsider is a no-holds-barred memoir by the original bad boy of tennis, Jimmy Connors.

Connors ignited the tennis boom in the 1970s with his aggressive style of play, turning his matches with John McEnroe, Bjorn Borg, and Ivan Lendl into prizefights. But it was his prolonged dedication to his craft that won him the public’s adoration. He capped off one of the most remarkable runs in tennis history at the age of 39 when he reached the semifinals of the 1991 U.S. Open, competing against players half his age.

More than just the story of a tennis champion, The Outsider is the uncensored account of Connors' life, from his complicated relationship with his formidable mother and his storybook romance with tennis legend Chris Evert, to his battles with gambling and fidelity that threatened to derail his career and his long-lasting marriage to Playboy playmate Patti McGuire.  

When he retired from tennis twenty years ago, Connors all but disappeared from public view. In The Outsider, he is back at the top of his game, and as feisty, outspoken, and defiant as ever.

This autobiography includes original color photographs from the author.

From the Back Cover:

Jimmy Connors is a working-man's hero, a people's champion who tore the cover off the country-club gentility of his sport. A renegade from the wrong side of the tracks, he broke the rules with a radically aggressive style of play and bad-boy antics. Yet his enduring dedication to his craft kept him among the top ten best players in the world for sixteen years straight—five of those years at number one. Presiding over an era that saw tennis attract a new breed of passionate fans, from cops to tycoons, Connors transformed the game forever with his two-handed backhand, his two-fisted lifestyle, and his epic rivalries.

The complete, uncensored story of his life and career, The Outsider is a grand slam of a memoir written by a man once again at the top of his game—as feisty, unvarnished, and defiant as ever.

About the Author:

Jimmy Connors won a record 109 men's singles titles (and fifteen doubles titles) from 1972 to 1989. He was ranked the world's number-one player for five consecutive years and won a total of ten Grand Slams. In 1998 he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame, and he is arguably one of the top tennis players of all time. Originally from East St. Louis, he lives in Santa Barbara, California, with his family.
