Kriekstein vs. Connors rerun

Three things strike me as they show this 1991 match again during the rain delay:

1. Kriekstein sucks.

2. How abusive those old players were to the umpires. Questioning a line call did Connors really yell at the umpire, "You are an abortion" ?

3. The Williams sisters play and serve now as hard as those two were 10 years ago. How far women's tennis has come...

2. No. He said "You are an abortion. You are an abortion."

You have to answer for Santino, Carlo.

Those are some pretty bad remarks.

lol @ Scott

I think we were all on the edge of our seats

I missed when he yelled at the ump unfortunately, I was really in the mood to be appalled

And people complain about Hewitt???

About the mens service speeds etc, you might keep in mind the racquets they were using

And keep in mind that Connors was 39 and Krickstein wasn't exactly a GS winner.

The only thing I noticed was that Connors took 30 minutes between points...using the towel to dry off his entire body...and probrably applying after shave too...geez. How did they put up with it back then? This guy was Sergio Garcia with a tennis racket.

first time to see Connors too against Agassi....replay of the quarterfinals at the 1989 US open. Andre was 19 and Connors 37. Connors acted like an asshole especially when Agassi was serving for the match in the deciding set at 5-2 and wasn't able to convert. Connors yelled: "now I'm giving him the chance to choke!!!!" . Andre has to wait for a long time during his service games because of Connor's delaying tactics.

now I wonder what happened during his encounters with McEnroe if any.

A couple of days ago CBS showed Conners 5 set match against Pat McEnroe. It was also from 1991 and was the match Conners won before the Krickstein match. AND CONNERS WAS EVEN WORSE. Took long strolls between points, towling off every inch of exposed skin..twice. I couldn't beleive it. I guess I was too young to realize how big a jerk Conners was back then...or I simply lack the patience now that I have to work for a living, and can't spend 5 hours watching tennis matches.
