John Patrick McEnroe Jr. is an American retired tennis player, considered, in his day, among the very greatest of the sport. McEnroe attained the No. 1 ranking in both singles and doubles, finishing his career with 77 singles and 78 doubles titles.
He won seven Grand Slam singles titles, four at the US Open and three at Wimbledon, and nine men's Grand Slam doubles titles. His singles match record of 82–3 in 1984 remains the best single season win rate of the Open Era. McEnroe also excelled at the year-end tournaments, winning eight singles and seven doubles titles, both of which are records. Three of his winning singles year-end championships were at the Masters Grand Prix (the ATP year-end event) and five were at the World Championship Tennis (WCT) Finals, an event which ended in 1989. Since 2000, there has been only one year-end men's singles event, the ATP Finals (the new name for the Masters Grand Prix). He was named the ATP Player of the Year and the ITF World Champion three times each: 1981, 1983 and 1984.
McEnroe contributed to five Davis Cup titles for the U.S. and later was team captain. He has stayed active in retirement, often competing in senior events on the ATP Champions Tour. He has also worked as a television commentator during the majors.
John McEnroe embodies the American spirit. For two decades, he set an unparalleled standard of excellence both on and off the court. His pursuit of perfection and intensity to win have made him a popular champion and a tennis legend for the ages.
McEnroe first endeared himself to the American public by reaching Wimbledon's semi-finals as an 18-year-old amateur preparing for college. It was clear even as a Stanford University freshman in 1978 that John was destined for the limelight. He was an All-American and NCAA Champion and in 1979, he won the first of four U.S. Open Championship singles titles. In 1981, he took the first of three Wimbledon singles titles, becoming the youngest number-one-ranked man in the game's history.
His knowledge of the game, honest analysis and magnetic personality have made him an instant hit as a television commentator for CBS, NBC and USA, to name just a few. A man with many interests outside of tennis, he oversees The John McEnroe Gallery in New York City and is also an accomplished guitarist.
McEnroe also recently released his autobiography, You Cannot Be Serious, and it has hit bestseller lists in the US and abroad. The memoir offers a no-holds-barred examination of contemporary tennis, McEnroe's championship seasons, his roles as a devoted father and husband, colorful television commentator, and much more.
