John Patrick McEnroe
Patrick McEnroe
Jr. (born February 16, 1959 in Wiesbaden, Germany, to American parents) is a retired American tennis player, often considered among the greatest in the history of the sport.[a] He was known for his shot-making artistry and volleying skills, as well as his confrontational on-court behavior that frequently landed him in trouble with umpires and tennis authorities. McEnroe attained the No. 1 ranking in both singles and doubles, finishing his career with 77 singles and 78 doubles titles; this remains the highest men's combined total of the Open Era. He won seven Grand Slam (also referred to as Majors) single titles, including four US Open titles and three Wimbledon titles, and added nine men's Grand Slam doubles titles. He made the finals of the French Open

once and only played the Australian Open

twice during the peak years of his career, his best result being making the semi-finals. He also excelled at the year-end tournaments, winning eight singles and seven doubles titles, both of which are records. Three of the singles year-end championship's were at the Masters Grand Prix (the ATP year-end event) and five were at the World Championship Tennis
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
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
Davis Cup
titles for the U.S. and later served as team captain. He has stayed active in retirement, often competing in senior events on the ATP Champions Tour. For many years he has also worked as a television commentator during the majors.

Early life[edit] McEnroe was born in Wiesbaden, Hessen, West Germany, to American parents, John Patrick McEnroe
Patrick McEnroe
Sr. and his wife Kay, née Tresham.[12] His father, the son of Irish immigrants, was at the time stationed with the United States
United States
Air Force.[12][13] In 1960, the family moved to the New York City
New York City
area, where McEnroe's father worked daytime as an advertising agent while attending Fordham Law School[14] by night. He has two younger brothers: Mark (born 1964) and former professional tennis player Patrick (born 1966). McEnroe grew up in Douglaston, Queens, New York City. He started playing tennis when he was eight, at the nearby Douglaston Club. When he was nine, his parents enrolled him in the Eastern Lawn Tennis Association, and he soon started playing regional tournaments. He then began competing in national juniors tournaments, and at twelve—when he was ranked seven in his age group—he joined the Port Washington Tennis
Tennis
Academy, Long Island, New York.[15] McEnroe attended Trinity School and graduated in 1977. Career[edit] As an 18-year-old amateur in 1977, McEnroe won the mixed doubles at the French Open
French Open
with Mary Carillo, and then made it through the qualifying tournament and into the main draw at Wimbledon, where he lost in the semifinals to Jimmy Connors
Jimmy Connors
in four sets. It was the best performance by a qualifier at a Grand Slam tournament and a record performance by an amateur in the open era.[1] After Wimbledon in 1977, McEnroe was recruited by Coach Dick Gould and entered Stanford University, where, in 1978, he led the Stanford team to an NCAA championship, and also won the NCAA singles title. Later in 1978, he joined the ATP tour and signed his first professional endorsement deal, with Sergio Tacchini. He again advanced to the semifinals at a Grand Slam, this time the US Open, losing again to Connors. Following which, he proceeded to win five titles that year, including his first Masters Grand Prix, beating Arthur Ashe
Arthur Ashe
in straight sets, as well as Grand Prix events at Stockholm and Wembley. His late season success allowed him to finish as the number four ranked player for the year. 1979–83[edit] In 1979, McEnroe and partner Peter Fleming won the Wimbledon Doubles title, the duo later adding the 1979 US Open Doubles title to their haul as well. That same week, McEnroe won men's singles US Open title, his first Grand Slam singles title. He defeated his friend Vitas Gerulaitis in straight sets in the final to become the youngest male winner of the singles title at the US Open since Pancho Gonzales, who was also 20 in 1948.[16] He also won the prestigious season-ending WCT Finals, beating Björn Borg
Björn Borg
in four sets. McEnroe won 10 singles and 17 doubles titles that year (for a total of 27 titles, which marked an open-era record)[citation needed] finishing at number 3 in the ATP year-end rankings. At Wimbledon, McEnroe reached the 1980 Wimbledon Men's Singles final—his first final at Wimbledon—where he faced Björn Borg, who was gunning for his fifth consecutive Wimbledon title. At the start of the final, McEnroe was booed by the crowd as he entered Centre Court following heated exchanges with officials during his semifinal victory over Jimmy Connors. In a fourth-set tiebreaker that lasted 20 minutes, McEnroe saved five match points and eventually won 18–16. McEnroe, however, could not break Borg's serve in the fifth set, which the Swede won 8–6. This match was called the best Wimbledon final by ESPN's countdown show "Who's Number One?"

McEnroe exacted revenge two months later, beating Björn Borg
Björn Borg
in the five-set final of the 1980 US Open. He was a finalist at the season-ending WCT Finals and finished as the number 2 ranked player for the year behind only Borg. McEnroe remained controversial when he returned to Wimbledon in 1981. Following his first-round match against Tom Gullikson, McEnroe was fined U.S. $1,500 and came close to being thrown out after he called umpire Ted James "the pits of the world" and then swore at tournament referee Fred Hoyles. He also made famous the phrase "you cannot be serious", which years later became the title of McEnroe's autobiography, by shouting it after several umpires' calls during his matches.[17] This behavior was in sharp contrast to that of Borg, who was painted by the press as an unflappable "Ice Man."[18] Nevertheless, in matches played between the two, McEnroe never lost his temper.[14] However, despite the controversy and merciless criticism from the British press (Ian Barnes of the Daily Express
Daily Express
nicknamed him "SuperBrat"), McEnroe again made the Wimbledon men's singles final against Borg. This time, McEnroe prevailed in four sets to end the Swede's run of 41 consecutive match victories at the All England
England
Club. TV commentator Bud Collins
Bud Collins
quipped after the Independence Day battle, paraphrasing "Yankee Doodle", "Stick a feather in his cap and call it 'McEnroe-ni'!".[19] The controversy, however, did not end there. In response to McEnroe's on-court outbursts during the Championships, the All England Club
All England Club
did not accord McEnroe honorary club membership, an honor normally given to singles champions after their first victory. McEnroe responded by not attending the traditional champions' dinner that evening. He told the press: "I wanted to spend the evening with my family and friends and the people who had supported me, not a bunch of stiffs who are 70–80 years old, telling you that you're acting like a jerk." The honor was eventually accorded to McEnroe after he won the championship again. Borg and McEnroe had their final confrontation in the final of the 1981 US Open. McEnroe won in four sets, becoming the first male player since the 1920s to win three consecutive US Open singles titles. Borg never played another Grand Slam event. McEnroe also won his second WCT Final, beating Johan Kriek in straight sets and finished the year as the number one ranked player. McEnroe lost to Jimmy Connors
Jimmy Connors
in the 1982 Wimbledon final. McEnroe lost only one set (to Johan Kriek) going into the final; however, Connors won the fourth-set tiebreak and the fifth set. He fell in the semi-finals at the US Open that year and was a finalist at the WCT Finals. He was able to retain ATP's number 1 ranking based on points at the end of the year on the basis of having won significant events at Philadelphia, Wembley and Tokyo, but due to Connor's victories at the two most important events of the year (Wimbledon and US Open), Connors was named the player of the year by the ATP and most other tennis authorities. In 1983, McEnroe reached his fourth consecutive Wimbledon final, dropping only one set throughout the tournament (to Florin Segărceanu) and sweeping aside the unheralded New Zealander Chris Lewis in straight-sets. At the US Open he was defeated in the fourth round, his earliest exit since 1977. He played at the Australian Open for the first time, making it to the semifinals, before being defeated in four sets by Mats Wilander. He made the WCT Final for the third time and beat Ivan Lendl
Ivan Lendl
in an epic five setter. He took the Masters Grand Prix title for the second time, again beating Lendl in straight sets. He also won major events at Philadelphia, Forest Hills and Wembley, enabling him to capture the year-end number one ranking once again. 1984: best season[edit] McEnroe's best season came in 1984, as he compiled an 82–3 match record that remains the highest single season win rate of the Open Era. He won a career-high 13 singles tournaments, including Wimbledon and the US Open, capturing the year-end number one ranking. He also played on the winning US World Team Cup
World Team Cup
and runner-up Davis Cup
Davis Cup
teams. He began the year with a 42-match win streak, winning his first six events of the year and reaching his first French Open
French Open
final, where his opponent was Ivan Lendl. McEnroe won the first two sets, but Lendl's adjustments of using more topspin lobs and cross-court backhand passing shots, as well as McEnroe's fatigue and temperamental outbursts, resulted in a demoralizing five-set loss. In his autobiography, McEnroe described this as his most bitter defeat and implied that he's never quite gotten over it. He rebounded at Wimbledon, losing just one set en route to his third Wimbledon singles title. This included a straight-set rout over Jimmy Connors in the final. He then won his fourth US Open title by defeating Lendl in straight sets in the final, after defeating Connors in a five-set semifinal. He also won his fourth WCT Final, defeating Connors in five sets, and took his third Masters Grand Prix, beating Lendl in straight sets. His combined record against the number 2 and 3 ranked players for the year, Jimmy Connors
Jimmy Connors
and Ivan Lendl, respectively, was 11-1, including going undefeated versus Connors in 5 matches. The year did not end without controversy. While playing and winning the tournament in Stockholm, McEnroe had an on-court outburst that soon became notorious. After questioning a call made by the chair umpire, McEnroe demanded, "Answer my question! The question, jerk!" McEnroe then slammed his racquet into a juice cart beside the court. He was suspended for 21 days for exceeding a $7,500 limit on fines that had been created because of his behavior.[14] As a result, he was disqualified from competing in the following week's significant Wembley (London) Indoor tournament, at which he was supposed to be the number one seed, with Connors and Lendl (the eventual winner) as the second and third seeds. During his suspension he injured his left wrist in practice causing him to withdraw from the Australian Open, the fourth major of the year, meaning he was unable to attempt to win 3 out of the 4 majors in the year. Some people note that his schedule in 1984 included a high number of events on his most successful surface, indoor carpet, while excluding major clay court events held in Rome, Monte Carlo and Hamburg although the ATP schedule at that time often contained conflicting clay and hardcourt (including indoor) tournaments. Taking time out[edit] In 1985, having reached the semi-finals at the French Open, McEnroe was beaten in straight sets by Kevin Curren
Kevin Curren
in the quarter-finals of Wimbledon.[20][21] He reached his last Grand Slam singles final at the US Open; this time, he was beaten in straight sets by Lendl. He did not advance past the quarter finals at the WCT Finals or the Masters Grand Prix. He did win major events at Philadelphia (his 4th straight there), Canada
Canada
(2nd straight) and Stockholm (2nd straight and 4th overall) and finished the year as the number two ranked player.

By 1986, the pressures of playing at the top had become too much for McEnroe to handle, and he took a six-month break from the tour. It was during this sabbatical that on August 1, 1986, he married actress Tatum O'Neal, with whom he had already had a son, Kevin (1986). They had two more children, Sean (1987) and Emily (1991), before divorcing in 1994. When he returned to the tour later in 1986, he won three ATP tournaments, but in 1987 he failed to win a title for the first time since turning pro. He took a seven-month break from the game following the US Open, where he was suspended for two months and fined US$17,500 for misconduct and verbal abuse. Style of play[edit]

A left hander, McEnroe played a Continental forehand. His backhand was similarly Continental and one-handed. His service motion is unique in tennis, with its biggest advantage being disguise in terms of placement. Known for very quick reflexes and deft hands, he possesses a superior net game. World No. 1 ranking[edit] McEnroe became the top-ranked singles player in the world on March 3, 1980.[1] He was the top ranked player on 14 separate occasions between 1980 and 1985 and finished the year ranked World No. 1 four straight years from 1981 through 1984. He spent a total of 170 weeks at the top of the rankings. Success in doubles[edit]

It has been written about McEnroe that he might have been "the greatest doubles player of all time" and "possibly the greatest team player never to have played a team sport."[14][22][23] He was ranked the World No. 1 in doubles for 270 weeks. He formed a powerful partnership with Peter Fleming, with whom he won 57 men's doubles titles, including four at Wimbledon and three at the US Open. Fleming was always very modest about his own contribution to the partnership – he once said "the best doubles partnership in the world is McEnroe and anybody."[14] McEnroe won a fourth US Open men's doubles title in 1989 with Mark Woodforde, and a fifth Wimbledon men's doubles title in 1992 with Michael Stich. He also won the 1977 French Open
French Open
mixed doubles title with childhood friend Mary Carillo. Davis Cup[edit] More than any other player in his era, McEnroe was responsible for reviving U.S. interest in the Davis Cup,[14] which had been shunned by Jimmy Connors
Jimmy Connors
and other leading U.S. players, and had not seen a top U.S. player regularly compete since Arthur Ashe. Connors's refusal to play Davis Cup
Davis Cup
in lieu of lucrative exhibitions became a source of enmity between him and Ashe. In 1978, McEnroe won two singles rubbers in the final as the U.S. captured the cup for the first time since 1972, beating Great Britain in the final. McEnroe continued to be a mainstay of U.S. Davis Cup
Davis Cup
teams for the next 14 years and was part of U.S. winning teams in 1978, 1979, 1981, 1982, and 1992. He set numerous U.S. Davis Cup
Davis Cup
records, including years played (12), ties (30), singles wins (41), and total wins in singles and doubles (59). He played both singles and doubles in 13 series, and he and Peter Fleming won 14 of 15 Davis Cup

doubles matches together. An epic performance was McEnroe's 6-hour, 22-minute victory over Mats Wilander in the deciding rubber of the 3–2 quarterfinal win over Sweden

in 1982, played in St. Louis, Missouri. McEnroe won the match, at the time the longest in Davis Cup

history, 9–7, 6–2, 15–17, 3–6, 8–6. McEnroe nearly broke that record in a 6-hour, 20-minute loss to Boris Becker

five years later. Becker won their match, the second rubber in a 3–2 loss to West Germany

in World Group Relegation play, 4–6, 15–13, 8–10, 6–2, 6–2. McEnroe also helped the U.S. win the World Team Cup

in 1984 and 1985, in both cases defeating Czechoslovakia

in the final. Final years on the tour[edit] McEnroe struggled to regain his form after his 1986 sabbatical. He lost three times in Grand Slam tournaments to Ivan Lendl, losing straight-set quarterfinals at both the 1987 US Open and the 1989 Australian Open
Australian Open
and a long four-set match, played over two days, in the fourth round of the 1988 French Open. Rumors of drug abuse had begun during his second sabbatical. McEnroe denied them at the time, but acknowledged that he had used cocaine during his career in a 2000 interview that implied that the use occurred during this period, although he denied that the drug affected his play.[14] Nevertheless, McEnroe had multiple notable victories in the final years of his career. In the 1988 French Open, McEnroe beat 16-year-old Michael Chang
Michael Chang
6–0, 6–3, 6–1 in the third round; Chang went on to win the title the next year. In 1989, McEnroe won a record fifth title at the World Championship Tennis
Tennis
Finals (the championship tournament of the WCT tour, which was being staged for the last time), defeating top-ranked Lendl in the semifinals. At Wimbledon, he defeated Mats Wilander in a four-set quarterfinal before losing to Stefan Edberg
Stefan Edberg
in a semifinal. He won the RCA Championships in Indianapolis
Indianapolis
and reached the final of the Canadian Open, where he lost to Lendl. He also won both of his singles rubbers in the quarterfinal Davis Cup
Davis Cup
tie with Sweden. Controversy was never far from McEnroe, however; in his fourth-round match against Mikael Pernfors at the 1990 Australian Open, McEnroe was ejected from the tournament for swearing at the umpire, supervisor, and referee.[14] He was warned by the umpire for intimidating a lineswoman, and then docked a point for smashing a racket. McEnroe was apparently unaware that a new Code of Conduct, which had been introduced just before the tournament, meant that a third code violation would not lead to the deduction of a game but instead would result in immediate disqualification; therefore, when McEnroe unleashed a volley of abuse at umpire Gerry Armstrong, he was defaulted. He was fined $6,500 for the incidents.[24][25][26] Later that year, McEnroe reached the semifinals of the US Open, losing to the eventual champion, Pete Sampras
Pete Sampras
in four sets. He also won the Davidoff Swiss Indoors
Davidoff Swiss Indoors
in Basel, defeating Goran Ivanišević
Goran Ivanišević
in a five-set final. The last time McEnroe was ranked in the world top ten was on October 22, 1990, when he was ranked 9th. His end-of-year singles ranking was 13th. In 1991, McEnroe won the last edition of the Volvo Tennis-Chicago tournament by defeating his brother Patrick in the final. He won both of his singles rubbers in the quarterfinal Davis Cup
Davis Cup
tie with Spain. And he reached the fourth round at Wimbledon (losing to Edberg) and the third round at the US Open (losing to Chang in a five-set night match). His end-of-year singles ranking was 28th in the world. In 1992, McEnroe defeated third-ranked and defending champion Boris Becker in the third round of the Australian Open
Australian Open
6–4, 6–3, 7–5 before a sell-out crowd. In the fourth round, McEnroe needed 4 hours 42 minutes to defeat ninth ranked Emilio Sánchez
Emilio Sánchez
8–6 in the fifth set. He lost to Wayne Ferreira

in the quarterfinals. At Wimbledon, McEnroe reached the semifinals where he lost in straight sets to the eventual champion Andre Agassi. McEnroe teamed with Michael Stich
Michael Stich
to win his fifth Wimbledon men's doubles title in a record-length 5-hour-1-minute final, which the pair won 5–7, 7–6, 3–6, 7–6, 19–17. At the end of the year, he teamed with Sampras to win the doubles rubber in the Davis Cup
Davis Cup
final, where the U.S. defeated Switzerland
Switzerland
3–1. McEnroe retired from the professional tour at the end of 1992. He ended his singles career ranked 20th in the world. He played in one tournament in 1994 as a wildcard at the Rotterdam Open
Rotterdam Open
he lost In the first round. This was his last ever Singles match on the ATP Tour. After Steffi Graf won French Open
French Open
in 1999, McEnroe suggested to her that they could play mixed doubles at Wimbledon. He and Graf reached the semi-finals of 1999 Wimbledon mixed doubles but withdrew at that stage because Graf, who was the losing finalist to Lindsay Davenport, decided to focus on her singles draw. Personal life[edit] McEnroe was married to Tatum O'Neal, Academy Award-winning actress and daughter of Ryan O'Neal, from 1986 to 1994 and the two had three children, Kevin, Sean and Emily. After their divorce, they were originally awarded joint custody of the children, but in 1998 McEnroe was awarded sole custody due to O'Neal's drug problems.[27] In 1997, McEnroe married rock singer Patty Smyth
Patty Smyth
with whom he has two daughters, Anna and Ava.[27][28] After retirement from the tour[edit] After retiring, McEnroe pursued his post-tour goal of becoming a working musician. He had learned to play guitar with the help of friends like Eddie Van Halen
Eddie Van Halen
and Eric Clapton. During his divorce, McEnroe formed The Johnny Smyth Band with himself as lead singer and guitarist, began writing songs, and played small gigs in cities where he played with the senior tour. Although Lars Ulrich
Lars Ulrich
complimented his "natural instinct for music", a bar owner where McEnroe's band played said that "he couldn't sing to save his life." The band toured for two years, but McEnroe suddenly quit in 1997 just before finishing his first album.[14] McEnroe was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame
International Tennis Hall of Fame
in 1999. He now is sports commentator at Wimbledon for the BBC in the UK. He also provides commentary on lesser ATP tennis tournaments in the US on networks such as CBS, NBC, USA, and ESPN, as does his brother Patrick.

in the semifinals. McEnroe resigned in November 2000 after 14 months as captain, citing frustration with the Davis Cup
Davis Cup
schedule and format as two of his primary reasons. His brother Patrick took over the job. In 2002, McEnroe played himself in Mr. Deeds
Mr. Deeds
and again in 2008 in You Don't Mess with the Zohan. McEnroe played himself in the 2004 movie Wimbledon. In July 2004, McEnroe began a CNBC
CNBC
talk show titled McEnroe. The show, however, was unsuccessful, twice earning a 0.0 Nielsen rating, and was cancelled within five months. In 2002, he hosted the American game show The Chair on ABC as well as the British version on BBC One, but this venture also was unsuccessful. In 2004, McEnroe said that during much of his career he had unwittingly taken steroids. He said that he had been administered these drugs without his knowledge, stating: "For six years I was unaware I was being given a form of steroid of the legal kind they used to give horses until they decided it was too strong even for horses."[29] McEnroe is active in philanthropy and tennis development. For years he has co-chaired the CityParks Tennis
Tennis
charity benefit, an annual fundraiser produced by the City Parks Foundation. The charitable event raises crucial funds for New York City's largest municipal youth tennis programs. He collects American contemporary art, and opened a gallery in Manhattan
Manhattan
in 1993.[14] McEnroe still plays regularly on the ATP Champions Tour. His most recent victory came at the Jean-Luc Lagardere Trophy in Paris in 2010, where he defeated Guy Forget
Guy Forget
in the final. Playing on the Champions Tour allows him to continue his most iconic rivalries with old adversaries Ivan Lendl
Ivan Lendl
and Björn Borg. In charity events and World Team Tennis, he has beaten many top players, including Mardy Fish
Mardy Fish
and Mark Philippoussis. In 2007, McEnroe appeared on the NBC comedy 30 Rock
30 Rock
as the host of a game show called "Gold Case" in which he uttered his famous line "You cannot be serious!" when a taping went awry. McEnroe also appeared on the HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm.

In 2009, McEnroe appeared on 30 Rock
30 Rock
again, in the episode "Gavin Volure", where the title character, a mysterious, reclusive businessman (played by Steve Martin) invites him to dinner because he bridges the worlds of "art collecting and yelling." In 2010, he founded the John McEnroe

Academy on Randall's Island in New York City.[30][31][32][33][34] In 2012, McEnroe, commentating for ESPN, heavily criticized Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic
Bernard Tomic
for "tanking" against Andy Roddick
Andy Roddick
at the US Open. However, Tomic was cleared of any wrongdoing, saying that he was "simply overwhelmed by the occasion" (this was the first time that he had ever played at Arthur Ashe

Stadium).[35] McEnroe was the subject of a book Facing McEnroe published in 2016, featuring fifty interviews with tennis players who competed against the former ATP World No. 1. McEnroe was part of Milos Raonic's coaching team from May to August 2016.[36] Return to the tour[edit] McEnroe returned to the ATP Tour in 2006 to play two doubles tournaments. In his first tournament, he teamed with Jonas Björkman to win the title at the SAP Open
SAP Open
in San Jose.[37] This was McEnroe's 78th doubles title (No. 5 in history) and his first title since capturing the Paris Indoor doubles title in November 1992 with his brother Patrick. The win meant that McEnroe had won doubles titles in four different decades. In his second tournament, McEnroe and Björkman lost in the quarterfinals of the tournament in Stockholm. McEnroe also won at the French Open
French Open
in 2012 for the over-45 legends doubles competition. He was partnered with his brother Patrick. They beat Guy Forget
Guy Forget
and Henri Leconte 7–6, 6–3. McEnroe and his brother Patrick also won again at the 2014 French Open

John McEnroe
John McEnroe
at Wimbledon 2014

McEnroe's fiery temper led to him being parodied in pop culture.

In 1982, British impressionist Roger Kitter and Kaplan Kaye, under the name of "The Brat", recorded the single Chalk Dust - The Umpire Strikes Back in which Kitter parodied McEnroe losing his temper during a match. The single reached the UK Top 20 and was a Top 10 hit in the Netherlands, Belgium
Belgium
and South Africa. His bursts of rage were parodied in the satirical British program Spitting Image, on which he and wife Tatum frequently screamed and threw things at each other. Another parody was in the satirical British program Not the Nine O'Clock News, portrayed by Griff Rhys Jones, showing him as a boy arguing with his parents over breakfast. In 1992 American Hip Hop band House Of Pain, shouted out "I'll serve your ass like John McEnroe", in their hit, "Jump Around" Punk band End of a Year references his famous temper in the song "McEnroe". He mocked himself in a PETA ad promoting spay and neuter, by launching into one of his famous tirades when challenged about his decision to have his dog fixed.[42] Sir Ian McKellen
Ian McKellen
used McEnroe as a model when playing Coriolanus for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1984. In preparation for some aspects of the title role of the film Amadeus, actor Tom Hulce
Tom Hulce
studied footage of John McEnroe's on-court tennis tantrums.[43] In 2006, McEnroe appeared in a television ad campaign for National Car Rental, expressing one of his outbursts, saying "Any Car? You cannot be serious!" The following year, McEnroe appeared in an advertisement for Telstra
Telstra
in Australia.[44] In late 2013, he starred in a television commercial campaign for the UK based gadget insurance company Protect Your Bubble. In the TV spot, he emulates his infamous on-court outbursts.[45] In 2014 he appeared as a guitarist on the solo debut album of Chrissie Hynde, lead singer of The Pretenders. Swedish biopic Borg/McEnroe
Borg/McEnroe
was released in 2017 depicting their rivalry and in particular 1980 Wimbledon final.[46]
