I don't see him claiming he offered to marry her. He just wanted nature to take it's course which is great when nature taking its course didn't affect him at all physically, financially, or professionally. She's the one who was going to bear ALL of the bad consequences, and he was not going to have any bad consequences.

And then he's upset because she turns cold when he basically says he wants to back off the relationship? Yeah. What did he want her to do? Sob and beg him? She's got her pride too.
No even if she insisted on abortion - she should have given him the opportunity to discuss the matter before it happened anyway.

Instead, she got perhaps scared of changing her mind and so she rushed and committed the abortion - and then came to him and told him and expected him to behave as if nothing had happened.

What matters is that Jimmy revealed it today without her permission.

Bastard.
Without her notice.

He doesn't need her permission to tell the truth, though obviously he spiced it up a bit on the way to portray Chris as heartless bitch like the ice queen we know in tennis court. The selling point of the book. $$$

Remember, in the early 1970s in the United States abortion was a hot topic and also remember 1973 Roe Vs Wade when abortion got legalized. In the early 1970s if Jimmy Connors did NOT marry Chris Evert it would have destroyed her career and reputation. I doubt early 1970s America would approve of a unwed, young female tennis player with a child. Back then in the 1970s unwed mothers were scorned. Chris Evert had to think about her reputation and her future. I think Chris did the right thing having the abortion. Billie Jean King did the same thing she also had an abortion during her career.

Both of them didn't decide anything.

She decided to abort the baby by herself without seeking 'second opinion'.

So it's a bit rich of her now to demand the kind of treatment from him that she was unwilling to give back then. She ought to know that people tend to treat you the way you treat them

He didn't say she refused to discuss it with him. It seems they discussed it and he had a different opinion than she did and she made up her mind. At no point does he say that she had an abortion without him knowing about it first.

So what? I hate Chris Evert with a passion. And she has no problem getting pregnant and then deciding what happens when Jimmy wanted the child. Both need to disappear because they are both overrated as commentators.

I bet he didn't want to keep the baby either- his whole career would have changed if he had.

Like Agassi doing meth? The only thing private was Armstrong doping all those years and admitting it on Oprah than in a book. Everything else is fair game my friend.

Yeah because she "decided" to get pregnant

Obviously neither of them made a decision to have a child. What happened was unplanned.

I don't think any of the youngsters on this site have any idea what it meant to have a child out of wedlock in those days. It wasn't like it is now.

Interestingly, or not, Jimmy started going out with a playboy model who he impregnated before he married her.

If your fiancee says something like "hey darling, I'm on my way to the abortion clinic - see you on the practice court tomorrow" do you consider that to be a discussion of the issue ?

I was not a fan of Jimmy Connors and this makes me despise him even more.

Well she made her own mind on what to do. And honestly, it was the right thing to do for both of them at that point in their lives.

I don't know why Jimmy revealed it here and now in his book, oh wait, yes I do, he is the ultimate showman, and it only makes sense that his book would have things like this in it.

I was always planning to get this book when it was released, now even more so.

Do you know the whole story? Are you sure Evert never discussed this with Connors?

The only fact I know here is Connors revealed something very private between him and his ex-financee without informing her first just to make a few bucks.

There was no indication the conversation went anything like that.

He said he wanted "nature to take its course" and she wanted to terminate the pregnancy. We don't know how long they discussed it or how many conversations they had. All he details is their final conversation where she says she has made up her mind, and he says well lets break up then and she says fine.
