Below are several tennis rackets that jimmy connors has played over the years.
Wilson T2000 Wilson T(2345)000 metal racket.

Wilson T3000 Wilson T2000 metal racket made famous by Jimmy Connors. New, never strung T2000 & T3000 are available with covers. Please email for availability.

jimmy connors estuza ameripro sidewinder jimmy connors estuza ameripro US Open racket These are the famous Estusa graphite rackets, the Ameripro Sidewinder, and the famous AeroSupra yellow model that Jimmy decided to use for his comeback. Both are Jimmy Connors signature model racquets with mid plus head sizes and are of a wide body design. Sidewinder racket is unique in that the strings at the 12, 6 and 3 o'clock positions wrap around the frame inspecial grooves. To quote label on the inside of the throat "strings wrap around the frame instead of going through it. shock andvibration are dissipated more eficiantly into the air instead of going through the frame. optimum power with control for the accomplished player". This racket is really pretty green with red highlights and becamepopular in the early 90's when Jimmy Connors abandoned his metalT2000's for rackets like these and had his famous career end run at the US open of 1991. These retailed in stores for around $120 and disappeared fast. I think they will really be valuable collectors rackets.
