Feb. 17, 1980: Jim Murray [Update: interviews] on Jimmy Connors, “Tennis is a grueling game. It's one on one. It's not a team game. You can't just say, 'Well, shoot, they called that one on the team.' Because the team is you. They called it on you. On your pocketbook. And when you play this game the number of years I have, if I hit a shot, once the ball leaves the racket, I can tell if the ball's in or out. You say, 'I hit a winner there,' and the guy says 'Out!' Well, you commence to get hot."
