Jimmy Connors was the first male player in the Open Era to rank No. 1 for more than five years in total and more than 200 weeks and hold a year-end top ten ranking for an Open Era record 16 years.

In 1974 alone, he won 95 out of 99 matches, all of them while wearing the same white shorts he washed in the sink of his hotel bathrooms. Despite living the rock star life away from tennis, his enduring dedication to his craft kept him among the ten best players in the world for sixteen straight years—with five years at number one. In The Outsider (Connors' memoir), Connors tells the complete, uncensored story of his life and career, setting the record straight on everything from his very public romance with America's sweetheart Chris Evert to his young nemesis, Andre Agassi. Connors reveals how his issues with obsessive-compulsive disorder, dyslexia, gambling and women at various times threatened to derail his career as well as his long-lasting marriage to Playboy Playmate Patti McGuire. Jimmy Connors transformed the game of tennis forever with his two-handed backhand, his two-fisted lifestyle and his epic rivalries.
