 John McEnroe Biography

John McEnroe is a name that has become synonymous with world-class tennis. Ranked No. 1 on the all-time ATP Tour tournament win list with 155 combined singles and doubles titles, McEnroe marveled the tennis world as a player of considerable skill and finesse. His volleying touch is considered the best tennis has ever seen and his crafty play sparked some of tennis’ most intense rivalries. His 82-3 singles match record, set in 1984, remains the record for the best year win percentage of the Open Era. However, it’s McEnroe’s fiery competitive spirit that truly makes him one of the most memorable sports icons of all time. His passionate and outspoken persona often captivated the sports world although there could be no disputing his enormous talents. After his breakthrough performance at Wimbledon in 1977, where he became the first qualifier to reach the semifinals, McEnroe began his professional career in 1978 and quickly became ranked number one in both singles and doubles.

McEnroe dominated tennis in the late seventies and eighties by winning three Wimbledon titles, four U.S. Open titles and countless other events. He won 77 career singles titles, including seven Grand Slams (Wimbledon in 1984, ’83, ’81 and the U.S. Open in 1984, ’81, ’80 and 1979). McEnroe was ranked No. 1 in the world four straight years, from 1981 through 1984, and also helped lead the United States to five Davis Cup championships in 1992, ’82, ’81, ’79, and 1978. In addition to his singles crowns, McEnroe won 78 doubles titles, the most recent being at the San Jose ATP tournament in 2006 when he and Jonas Bjorkman won the doubles title 12 years after he played in his last tour event. In July 1999, McEnroe received the ultimate achievement in tennis for his outstanding career when he was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. McEnroe has also managed a very successful broadcasting career, having earned his first Sports Emmy nomination in 1998 for his outspoken and precise analysis. He currently works for ESPN at Wimbledon and the U.S. Open, NBC and Eurosport at the French Open and BBC at Wimbledon.

McEnroe still competes on two mens professional senior circuits, The Champions Tour and The ATP Tour of Champions. He also competes in a number of exhibition and special events across the globe

No other tennis player has been as successful in the entertainment and media world as McEnroe. As an actor, he has been appeared in TV shows and films including Players, Wimbledon, The Chair on ABC, McEnroe on CNBC, Freak Show, Frasier, Costas Now, 30 Rock, 7 Days in Hell, CSI NY, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Saturday Night Live, Anger Management, Jack & Jill, Mr. Deeds and more. His memoir, “You Cannot Be Serious,” was #1 on the New York Times and London best-seller lists for multiple weeks.

McEnroe founded the Johnny Mac Tennis Project (JMTP), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization to expose NYC kids from under-resourced communities to tennis. McEnroe’s mission is to share the sport he loves and the opportunities he received with future generations. JMTP provides several different pathways to success through tennis. Children attending neighboring schools and local community-based organizations are offered high-quality, free tennis programs at the John McEnroe Tennis Academy's world-class facility on Sportime, Randall's Island. Weekly lessons encourage young players to become physically active, learn a great sport and improve their problem solving skills. For competitive young, Metropolitan-area athletes, JMTP also offers professional-level training by funding scholarships to McEnroe's world-class academy and underwriting the expenses associated with tournament travel.

Now a father of six, McEnroe, and his wife rock star Patty Smyth, currently reside in Manhattan.
