England’s Lawn Tennis Association, which already has former champion John McEnroe working with its young players, is hooking up with another American left-hander with a fiery reputation.


Connors spent three days coaching at the LTA’s elite performance camp in La Manga, Spain, hoping to develop British players to follow in the footsteps of Tim Henman and Canadian-born Greg Rusedski.


“The more involved I am, the better,” Connors said at a news conference. “While it’s ultimately up to the players once they cross the white line, having the right setup and attitude will go a long way in helping them realize their talents.”
