John McEnroe embodies the American spirit. His relentless pursuit of perfection, combined with a technical mastery honed through years of competition, has made him a popular champion and tennis legend.
He won his first Grand Slam singles title in 1979 when he captured the first of four U.S. Open Championships. In 1981, he took the first of his three Wimbledon singles titles, becoming the youngest #1 ranked male in the history of professional tennis. With seven grand slam singles championships and ten grand slam doubles championships, McEnroe is still considered one of the greatest players of the game.
