He was also a runner-up seven times in Grand Slam singles, a doubles runner-up with N?stase at the 1973 French Open, and a mixed doubles runner-up with Chris Evert at the 1974 US Open.

In 1974, Connors became the second male in the open era to win three or more Grand Slam singles titles in a calendar year. Connors is also the only person to win US Open singles championships on grass, clay, and hard courts.
Connors won a record 109 ATP tournaments, 15 more than Ivan Lendl, and over 30 more than Roger Federer and John McEnroe. His career win-loss record of 1243–277 is third after Björn Borg and Ivan Lendl, and he holds the record for total number of wins for a male player.
