John Patrick McEnroe Jr. is a retired American tennis player, often considered among the greatest in the history of the sport. 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. At the majors he won seven singles titles (four US Open, three Wimbledon) and nine men’s doubles titles. He also excelled at the year-end tournaments, winning eight singles and seven doubles titles, both of which are records.
