Tennis Identity

“This is what they paid for.”

"This is what they want!"

That's the memorable quote from Jimmy Connors at the 1991 U.S. Open. The most famous Open match that late summer in New York was absolutely his dramatic win (on his 39th birthday) over Aaron Krickstein.

Now, 24 years later, the two former champions will stage a fun and friendly “Reunion Exhibition Match” on February 10th at St. Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton, where Krickstein is the Director of Tennis. This exhibition is a special private event for the St. Andrews membership only, and will be held at the club’s 700-seat tennis stadium.
