Five-time U.S. Open champion Jimmy Connors was on a Flushing Meadows indoor practice court Wednesday, hitting with another American great, Jim Courier, as he tries to work himself back into playing shape for his return to competitive tennis _ in the Champions Series later this year.
The 59-year-old Connors, whose highlights are aired almost anytime the rain falls at Flushing Meadows, conceded even he still gets nervous.
Connors said he hasn't played in front of a crowd in 10 or 12 years. "The tennis is OK. I can play. But playing in front of a crowd, what they expect, what I expect of myself. That's going to be interesting."
