Text Quotes
When you’re hot, anything can happen  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I never lost a tennis match, I just ran out of time  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Experience is a great advantage. The problem is that when you get the experience, you’re too damned old to do anything about it.  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Tennis was always there for me, which was lucky. I would go play baseball, basketball, football, hang with my brother, do whatever, and at the end of the day I’d come back and say, ‘Hey, Mom, would you hit 15 minutes worth of balls with me?’  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I had true rivalries. Not only did I want to beat my opponent, but I didn’t want to let him up, either. I had a rivalry with Mac, Lendl, Borg. Everybody knew there was tension between us, on court and off. That’s what’s really ingrained in my mind: ‘This is real. This isn’t a soft rivalry.’ There were no hugs and kisses  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Back in East St. Louis, tennis wasn’t the real thing. If you weren’t playing baseball, basketball, football, you were kind of on the outside  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I think my greatest victory was every time I walked out there, I gave it everything I had. I left everything out there. That’s what I’m most proud of. I can’t go win Wimbledon anymore, so if what I’ve done in the past is not good enough, let it go. Because I’m certainly not sitting around thinking about it  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Use it or lose it  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Big money encourages tanking. In my opinion, tanking is going on even with a lot of the top guys today - it’s quite evident  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) New Yorkers love it when you spill your guts out there. Spill your guts at Wimbledon and they make you stop and clean it up  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I would watch Gonzalez play and he mesmerized you. It would be like looking into the flame of a fire. You know you couldn’t take your eyes off him because you never knew what he would do next  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) From where we lived, to practise in St Louis was an hour-and-a-half drive each way, so that took a lot of the time. So really, our lives just took different paths  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I hate to lose more than I love to win  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I always insist on my jeans being ironed. Is that a problem?  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) What works for the person you’re imitating may not work for you  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) When you’re hot, anything can happen  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I was never part of the crowd  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I am not looking to be understood or liked. Like me or not, I don’t care. I am an outsider, that is the way I was brought up  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) But why should I read what somebody else thinks of my life when I know the real story?  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I hate to lose more than I love to win. I hate to see the happiness on their faces when they beat me  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Every time I went out there I performed the best that I could and it was time to step back and clear my mind  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Bjorn was a different breed, I threw my best material at him, but he would never smile, but that added to the charm when he played me and Mac. We were going nuts and losing our mind and he was sitting back like he was on a Sunday stroll  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) I’ve been kicked in the teeth more times in tennis than the law ought to allow  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Experience is a great advantage. The problem is that when you get the experience, you’re too damned old to do anything about it  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) For the last five or six years the most important thing in my life has been my family  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) People don’t seem to understand that it’s a damn war out there  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Rather than viewing a brief relapse back to inactivity as a failure, treat it as a challenge and try to get back on track as soon as possible  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) Tennis was never work for me, tennis was fun. And the tougher the battle and the longer the match, the more fun I had  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) You have to remember that I played longer than anybody else on the main tour; I played until I was 40, and then played another six years or so on the seniors tour  (Jimmy Connors Quotes) People say I’m around because I have a lot of heart, but I know all the heart in the world couldn’t have helped me if I wasn’t physically fit  (Jimmy Connors Quotes)
