About Jimmy Connors

James Scott ("Jimmy") Connors was born September 2, 1952 in East St. Louis, Illinois and raised and trained by his mother. He is a former American tennis champion who was the world number one player for 160 consecutive weeks from July 1974 to August 1977. He was also the World No. 1 player an additional 8 times during his career. He won eight Grand Slam singles titles and two Grand Slam doubles titles. He is often considered to be one of the top male tennis players of all time.

1. A training mode with five different instructors to hone various areas of your game.

2. An exhibition mode, in which you have the option of playing singles or doubles matches against the computer or watching the computer play demo matches. There are 16 players in the game (Jimmy Connors along with 15 fictional players), and all are selectable in exhibition mode.

3. The meat of the game is in the tour mode. Tour mode is divided into 12 months, and a certain number of tennis tournaments are held each month. For example, in January, the Australian Open is held, along with two other tournaments. Every tournament is worth a certain number of points for winning it, with major tournaments obviously worth more than minor tournaments. You will receive a certain number of points depending on your finish in each tournament which are added up over the course of the year. After each month of tour mode, you are given a password. If you choose to take a break from playing, you must write down this password to continue where you left off. Your objective is to achieve the number one ranking in the world by the end of the year by having the most points. All four of the Grand Slam tournaments are here, and Blue Byte added their own tournament as a fifth major.

The play is simple. The longer you hold the button down, the harder your return shot flies off. Each of the buttons represents a different kind of shot, and your selection of shots will change depending on whether you are serving, playing from the baseline, or roaming close to the net. The directional pad is used for placing your serves and shots. It's simple to get into and difficult to master.

Beginner vs Pro

There is an "Easy mode" for the controls, which allows the computer to control the movement of your player, and you worry about the shot; this is great for beginners.

Jimmy Connors Pro Tennis Tour Download (1991 Sports Game)

Jimmy Conners Pro Tennis Tour attempts to be all things to all people interested in a simulation of tennis. On many levels it succeeds admirably but more often than not it falls short of it's lofty goals. The most glaring and unfortunately the most important flaw in the game is the difficulty in saving your player's evolving statistics to one of four save slots. This single detraction is of major importance since the entire game (when played in tournament/career mode) revolves around the hopefully increasing level of expertise of your player. It's far too easy to sweat out a set of tennis here only to have your progress ignominiously lost to a tricky save feature. While discussing flaws, the other serious drawback is the potentially difficult learning curve. Actually it's just a matter of learning the various keys or joystick moves required to control your player and the coordination required to strike the ball solidly. However, since a tennis simulation has little going for it but player movement, the ease or difficulty in mastering the techniques is of paramount importance. As a single player against computer opponents, this doesn't seem like such a big deal but when firing up the game with as many as three human opponents, two with joysticks and two using the same keyboard, the problem is exacerbated exponentially.

This isn't to say that Jimmy Conners Pro Tennis Tour is a complete 0-6, 0-6 washout. The overall structure of the game contains an amazing number of options that allow continuous play with attainable goals. For example, the game includes a very nice training tool in the form of the ball machine. It's a programmable tool that allows for practice in various types of shot making and features not only multiple choices of location where you want to receive the ball but at the speed and frequency as well. There is even an option for a random shot generator. For those wishing to succeed in the simulation it is advisable to spend a considerable amount of time on the practice court. Also of note is the option to play an entire world circuit tour enhanced by the well developed presentation of the results. Four game modes are available that allow for varying degrees of difficulty including computer, junior, intermediate and professional and the choice of gender of your player is an added touch. Player creation is an interesting amalgam of choices in that you are given 64 skill building points at the start and you apply those to any of seven particular skills. Once awarded, however, any further character skill progression is determined by hitting successful shots. Jimmy Conners Pro Tennis Tour is a fairly comprehensive simulation of tennis with many good and some not-so-good aspects. For the most part, it serves within the lines as an overall decent entertainment tool but doesn't seem to hold up over the long haul. There are better products on the market with the simple expedient of greater ease of use to recommend them.

Graphics: Considering what's involved in a tennis simulation, attention to detail would seem to be of utmost importance. While the game view is adjustable, the lack of high resolution renders the game less enjoyable and realistic than hoped. Of course, the redundancy of a tennis match itself limits the visual choices in game design.

Sound: What little music the game contains does not enhance the experience nor are the sound effects particularly striking which is dismaying in a simulation of tennis.

Enjoyment: The game offers a near-term diversion but gets tedious in the long haul. The overly difficult mastering of shot controls and player movement along with a terrible save feature negates prolonged enjoyment.

Replay Value: Simply because it is a tennis game that deals in individual matches, replay value is assured. However, the shortcomings of the game itself may cause it sit on the shelf more often than not.

Endorsed by famous tennis player, Jimmy Connors, this game offers tournament and single play on multiple court types.

Using crosshairs, aim your ball to the other side of the court and hope you hit where you want. If you are lucky, you might even score an Ace. If not, you will need to be ready to return your opponent's return. Run back and forth as you try to keep hitting the ball over the net until your opponent misses, or you do. When you hit the ball, you will want to attempt changing the direction and speed of the ball to throw your opponent off balance. This is the real challenge of any tennis game.

Jimmy Conners Pro Tennis Tour (or simply Pro Tennis Tour in Europe) is a below average tennis game from Blue Byte. Although it has all the options you find in a typical tennis game (variable court types, tournament or single play, etc.), the game suffers from poor controls and jerky graphics. For example, to serve the ball you must move the crosshairs very quickly to the intended part of the court you want the ball to land on. You only have about 3 seconds to do this, however, and the crosshairs inexplicably moves with the speed of molasses. It took me countless tries (and foregone points) to get my serve to land correctly. The rest of the game is no less aggravating, since it's often very hard to tell where the position of the ball is, and to vary the speed or direction of your shots. Despite having one of tennis' most famous stars to endorse the game, Pro Tennis Tour is best passed over for a better tennis game.

Good tennis game. Named after this fantastic tennisplayer from the 90s/ You can play against eachother or against the computer.

Jimmy Connors, American tennis player

Jimmy Connors

September 2, 1952 (age 65)

Jimmy Connors , byname of James Scott Connors (born Sept. 2, 1952 , East St. Louis , Ill., U.S.), American professional tennis player who was one of the leading competitors in the 1970s and early ’80s and was known for his intensity and aggressive play. During his career he won 109 singles championships and was ranked number one in the world for 160 consecutive weeks.

The left-handed Connors learned to play tennis from his mother at an early age, and when he was eight years old he competed in the U.S. boys’ championship. A former student at the University of California at Los Angeles, he joined team tennis in 1972.

In 1974 he won three of the Grand Slam tournaments ( U.S. Open , Australian Open , and Wimbledon ) but was barred from the fourth, the French Open . He sued the Association of Tennis Professionals, alleging that they illegally excluded him from the French event, but he dropped his lawsuit after his loss to Arthur Ashe for the 1975 Wimbledon championship. He won the U.S. singles titles in 1976 and 1978 against Björn Borg and in 1982 and 1983 against Ivan Lendl. Connors also won the indoor championship five times (1973–75, 1978, and 1979), the Wimbledon and U.S. doubles (with Ilie Nastase in 1975), and the 1982 Wimbledon singles. He was also a member of the U.S. Davis Cup squad in 1976, 1981, and 1984.

Although he failed to win a major singles championship after his success at the U.S. Open in 1983, he continued to play in the 1990s. Hampered by an ailing left wrist and having lost the few matches he played in 1990, Connors dropped below 900 in the world rankings. After undergoing surgery, he came back to make the semifinals at the U.S. Open in 1991 after winning a dramatic five-set match against Aaron Krickstein in the fourth round on his 39th birthday.

Connors was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1998. He kept active in the sport, serving as a television commentator. He also wrote several books, including Jimmy Connors: How to Play Tougher Tennis (1986, with Robert J. Marche) and Don’t Count Yourself Out!: Staying Fit After 35 with Jimmy Connors (1992, with Neil Gordon and Catherine McEvily Harris).
