John Patrick McEnroe is recognized him as one of the greatest tennis players of all time. During his career he won seven Grand Slam singles titles – three at Wimbledon and four at the U.S. Open. He also won nine Grand Slam men’s doubles titles and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title.He is remembered for his shot-making artistry and supreme volleying; for his matches against Bjorn Borg; for his fiery on-court temperament which frequently landed him in trouble with umpires and tennis authorities; and for the catchphrase “You cannot be serious!” directed toward an umpire during a match at Wimbledon in 1981.He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999.
