John Patrick McEnroe, Jr. (born February 16, 1959) is a former World No. 1 professional tennis player
from the United States often rated among the greatest tennis players of all time,
especially for his touch on the volley.
He won seven Grand Slam singles titles (three at Wimbledon and four at the US Open),
nine Grand Slam men's doubles titles, and one Grand Slam mixed doubles title.
He also won a record eight year-end championships, 19 Grand Prix Super Series titles,
and finished his career with 77 ATP-listed singles titles and 71 in doubles.
McEnroe is known for his shot-making artistry and volleying skills; for his rivalries with Björn Borg
and Ivan Lendl
; and for his confrontational on-court behavior which frequently landed him
in trouble with umpires and tennis authorities.
In 1981, 1983 and 1984 he was both the ATP player of the year and the ITF World Champion for Men's singles.
His match record of 823 in 1984 remains the best single season win rate of the Open Era.
