Jimmy Connors releases his new autobiography titled “The Outsider.” Through the book, Connors decides to finally let the public into the private world he created on and off of the tennis court..

Connors, a former number one ranked tennis player, won eight Grand Slam singles titles and two Grand Slam doubles titles – Australian Open (1974), French Open (1979, 1980, 1984, 1985), Wimbledon (1974, 1982) and US Open (1974, 1976, 1978, 1982, 1983). He held the top ranking for a then-record 160 consecutive weeks from July 29, 1974 to August 22, 1977 and an additional eight times during his career for a total of 268 weeks.

Connors largely disappeared from the public spotlight after his retirement while others such as John McEnroe remained highly visible. As a result, his autobiography is highly anticipated and promises to receive a lot of attention. Don’t be surprised to find it on the New York Times bestseller list.
