    Djokovic wins Roland Garros, Osaka & Federer's early exits, Brett's trip to Oregon

    Djokovic wins Roland Garros, Osaka & Federer's early exits, Brett's trip to Oregon

    Jimmy and Brett recap the 2021 French Open which concluded with the wins for Novak Djokovic and Barbora Krejcikova.  What does the win mean for Novak in the chase for history and most grand slam titles. How does Nadal bounce back after the tough 4 set loss in the semi finals to Djokovic and who ends up with the most slams when it's all said and done.  Will Stefanos Tsitsipas use his first time grand slam finalist result as a launching pad to the next level or will losing the two set lead in the finals linger. 

    Naomi Osaka and Roger Federer made headlines at Roland Garros, not for their tennis, but for their decision to withdraw from the tournament early. Brett and Jimmy get into why this might be a turning point in history when it comes to mental health awareness, and in how athletes chose to communicate to the media and their fanbase. 

    Brett tells us about his recent road trip up to Oregon for some golf with an old college buddy, and how he ended up sleeping in his car. All this and much more on episode #29 of Advantage Connors

    Pete Rose conversation

    Pete Rose conversation

    When Jimmy and Brett started this podcast they made a short list of people they wanted to try and have as guests on the show. At the top of that list was this weeks guest, the hit king himself Pete Rose joins Advantage Connors on episode #28! Pete used to be an avid tennis player himself, and talks about the days when he used to play 5 days a week. Besides being mistaken for and compared to each other throughout their respective careers, Jimmy and Pete connect on many levels and actually do have a lot in common. This is the first time the two bowl cut all stars have had the chance to actually sit down and have a real conversation with one another.  Both had a parent who helped teach them the game, both had that never quit mentality, and both were second to none when it came to discipline and work ethic. Oh yeah, and both guys liked the action of placing a bet once in a while! Tune in and listen to these two sports icons chat about the state of their sports today, and what they miss about playing in the good old days. And Pete calls out Brett for having a "trash mouth", but where exactly does he think he got it?  All that plus much more on this week Advantage Connors!

    Mickelson wins PGA at 50, Paris in the Summer, & Curious UFO Sightings

    Mickelson wins PGA at 50, Paris in the Summer, & Curious UFO Sightings

    Phil Mickelson shocked the golf world this past weekend coming out of no where to win the 103rd playing of the PGA Championships. The five time major champ had pretty much been written off as a serious contender on the regular tour, even though he had shown early success on the senior tour, winning 2 tourneys already. So that makes Phils improbable win at the windswept Ocean Course at Kiawah Island even that much more gratifying to watch. With so much talk about the younger generation taking over and 400 yard drives Phil won one for the older crew and boy was it fun to watch. Also cashing at a ridiculous 290-1 odds in Vegas. Jimmy talks about how he could relate a little with Phil in comparing it to his 1991 US Open run to the SFs in Flushing Meadows, NY. Overall a top live event to have watched on the couch at home, now we just wait for Tiger to come back and have his Ben Hogan moment to try and one up Phil!

    Jimmy reminisces about spending time in one of his favorite cities in the world, Paris. While he didn't always see eye to eye with the French tennis federation, he always loved playing in front of the fans in Paris and spending time as well. 



    With all the mainstream talk recently of UFO's, it was time for it to make it on an episode of AC.  One of Jimmy's favorite shows is Ancient Aliens, so this should be good. The timing of it seems a bit odd though, for so long you were a tin hat wearing looney if you believed in flying saucers, but now you turn on the television and Barack Obama is talking about it as if it's any other topic.  Why the sudden in change in main stream coverage?

    Darren Rovell joins us, & Miami Open wrap up

    Darren Rovell joins us, & Miami Open wrap up

    MIAMI OPEN RECAP- 0:33-25:03

    First up Jimmy and Brett look back at the 2021 Miami Open, with Hubert Hurkacz and Ash Barty taking home the titles. With the big 3 plus
    Thiem missing from the tournament it was wide open for someone new to break through and win a masters 1000. It seemed like it was setting up for podcast favorite Jannik Sinner to get that breakthrough win on the tour.  But instead it was his good friend and doubles partner Hurkacz taking home his second title of the year.  On the ladies side it was world #1 Ash Barty, who saved a match point earlier in the event beating Bianca Andreescu to defend her Miami title. Andreescu broke back onto the scene after battling injuries on and off for the last year plus, grinding out multiple three set thrillers in her run to the final. 



    DARREN ROVELL JOINS THE SHOW - 25:04-1:39:07

    Then longtime sports business reporter for ESPN & CNBC and now Senior Executive Producer at the Action Network, Darren Rovell joins us as a special guest. Talking Baylor winning the NCAA tournament, the upcoming Masters and why hasn't tennis embraced gambling like the other sports have.  Also Darren schools Brett and Jimmy on NFT's, digital horses, and the memorabilia game to follow up on some of the topics from the last episode. All that plus plenty more on episode #25 of Advantage Connors. 



    **Apologies fo Brett's audio during the Rovell segment, it was our first show over zoom, we live and we learn.***

Advantage Connors

Brett and Jimmy are awesome podcasters to listen to!! They get really good guests and provide outstanding content! The future is bright for Advantage Connors!

A Great Podcast about a fantastic sports era

Jimmy Connors talks with and about the great sports figures from the great eras in sports. He started in pro tennis when the greatest generation (Laver, Rosewall, Stan Smith, Emerson, King, Court) was peaking and the greater generation (Borg, McEnroe, Lendl, Evert, Navratilova) was emerging. It’s not Connors just talking about himself- it’s about the people who built the modern sports world. The Mike Tyson interview is the best ever about who is was and who he is. Each episode offers up great stories presented from Connors and others who lived them.
