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.
McEnroe maintained his top rank for the next four years and captured seven Grand Slam singles championships. With his 10 Grand Slam doubles championships, John McEnroe is considered to be the greatest doubles player ever.
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. The father of five, McEnroe has also won another title – the 1996 National Father of the Year Award.
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.
For over 20 years, John McEnroe has shown what it takes to be a success both on and off the court. His amazing life is proof positive that being passionate about your every endeavor will guarantee success.
