Sept. 2: Jimmy Connors, 70
One of the most dominant players of the Open Era, tennis great Jimmy Connors still holds many men’s singles records: career titles (109), finals appearances (164), matches won (1,274) and matches played (1,557).

Sept. 6: Justina Machado, 50
Following her SAG Award–winning turn as Vanessa Diaz on Six Feet Under, the Chicago-born actress took center stage as Penelope Alvarez, an Army veteran living with PTSD, in the Cuban American reboot of One Day at a Time (2017–20). These days, she’s lending her voice to the Peacock/Hulu animated series DreamWorks Dragons: The Nine Realms, which returned for its third season in August.
