Insider info: Doug Robson, who provided great coverage of the US' Davis Cup win last season for USA Today, is divulging some insider information on the Andy Roddick-Jimmy Connors split.
Apparently, the partnership hit an impasse when A-Rod was forced to choose between seeing swimsuit girlfriend Brooklyn Decker and meeting up with Connors. According to Robson's latest post,
Roddick wanted to stop in New York City on his way back so he could spend time with his squeeze, the blonde S.I. swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker. He asked Jimbo to come to the Big Apple to train. Connors told Andy he preferred him to come to his home in Montecito. It was a good old-fashioned standoff. Neither would budge. Not hard to imagine, is it: Two bull-headed champs standing their ground. Vexed that Connors wouldn’t be more “flexible” considering the princely sum he was paying the eight-time champ from East St. Louis, Ill., the two had a longer conversation about their working relationship, travel, commitment. One thing led to another and…Kaput.Sex or tennis? Tennis or sex?? I guess we all know what won out.
