He should not have what he did at all. To be honest, it always freaked me out how this jerk seemed to have so many fans when he was at the top of the game. He was the ultimate in passive-aggressive gamesmanship and rude behaviour. I always thought he was far nastier than John McEnroe for example.

Well don't come to me nine months later looking for child support since it's your baby

But there's always a moral shade to anything. And disclosing a personal matter such as this breaches hte moral position - but maybe I'm just old fashioned. I hate kiss and tell and all that.

That may be true. But this is still part of his truth It happened to him also. This could have been some kind of a cathartic moment in his life.

Pretty low of Jimmy Connors.

I don't think that's true-- well, in the US it isn't.

Re: Jimmy Connors Knocked Up Chris Evert and She Aborted Baby - Allegedly !

While Jimmy Connors certainly is not a gentleman if you have skeletons in your closet they always can appear in the open even after 40 years.
Here in Europe we also knew Chrissie was not who her PR people made us believe the classy sweetheart. But in the US sometimes it pays more to hold back or lie then to tell the truth.
I am curious if any of her colleagues at the WTA knew about this because if so they were more ladies then Jimmy Connors is a gentleman.

BTW Jimmy Connors does not work for Tennis Channel anymore, he was only a commentator for 2 or 3 grandslam tournaments.Do not know if he was bad or asked too much money.

What he did was incredibly classless, and he could've at least told Evert personally before she found out through the media. But he did not break any laws revealing this abortion. He's a horrible person.

Re: Jimmy Connors Knocked Up Chris Evert and She Aborted Baby - Allegedly !

I'm with brickhousesupporter on this one, I think people are having a very simplistic view that almost borders on sexism because Jimmy is a man and a perceived jerk, while Chris is still the American sweetheart... He may not have been a gentleman in the end, but what is to be a gentleman if a set of historically cultural rules that are imposed and changeable anyway? Jimmy has a right to expose his opinion as anybody else in here, and even much more so, as he was directly involved with the fact. Chris had the final saying in the end, but that also carried the possibility of being exposed one day, either by herself, Jimmy or somebody else that was privy to the information as in an unauthorized biography... Jimmy did not act as a gentleman by telling this very intimate detail, but he had every legal right to do so, he was one half of the couple,and Evert certainly knows that (unless it's a lie, of course)...As for releasing this tidbit for added interest on the oncoming book, almost every publisher does that to spike sales, remember when whole sections of Agassi's book was published "outing" his meth use?

Don’t squander the gold of your days listening to the tedious, trying to improve the hopeless failure, or giving away your life to the ignorant and the vulgar. These are the sickly aims, the false ideals of our age.

Trust, no one wants your baby, and this has nothing to do with you!

He could have actually spilled the beans 40 years ago and considering Evert's image and perceived reputation at the time, that could potentially have been very damaging for her... the way it is right now though, it's just an interesting fodder... He's still a jerk though , but this ranks among the minor flaws in his long resume of annoyances...

I never got his appeal. Too young for my generation but I always watched his matches during rainy days and he came off as an assclown. But this is low. That is personal information and he should have gotten her okay. That wasn't a time when it was easy to just walk in somewhere and take care of it that easily.
