Charlie Rose and John McEnroe in an interview from 1999
John McEnroe is remembered as one of the fiercest competitors ever on the tennis court. He is remembered as much for his legendary tirades as for his on-court success. Battling with officials every step of the way, McEnroe managed to win 4 U.S. Opens (including 3 in a row from 1979 to 1981) and 3 Wimbledon singles titles. He was also one of the all-time great doubles players, winning 9 Grand Slam titles. McEnroe was a key member of the U.S. Davis Cup Team for many years. He was elected to the International Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999.
