WIMBLEDON, England -- Former Wimbledon champion Jimmy Connors is pitching a proposal for a $1 million doubles match that would include him, John
McEnroe and Pete Sampras.
The most intriguing twist: Connors, 51, said he and longtime rival McEnroe, 45, would be partners. Teaming with Sampras would be someone "from his
generation or one guy from the younger generation that's playing today," Connors said.
McEnroe said he was interested, especially if the Sampras team is limited to one serve per point.
"Jimmy has proven that he has pretty much gone off the deep end by trying to put this match together," McEnroe said. "I'm already off the deep by
agreeing to consider doing it."
