Connors questions sitting out U.S. OPEN

September 08, 1993|By Los Angeles Daily News

The steady evaporation of big names from the U.S. Open has the man New York really misses, Jimmy Connors, thinking he maybe should have played this year.

Connors reasons that, at 41, he can survive just as long as the many top seeds who have lost early at Flushing Meadow. He suggests that proving it at selected ATP Tour events in 1994 is a possibility.

"I guess with what's happening at the Open, I'm getting a little desire back," Connors said yesterday after Jim Courier was upset by Cedric Pioline.
