Check out McEnroe in this video
Does he really care about a round robin seniors event so much that he feels the need to swear multiple times at age 48
Is Bad Mac on drugs
Is he looking to repeat his glory/infamous days
Just pure attention seeking

At his age playing on senior he should be embarrased, I was for him. Young players on the ATP losing it you can understand but a man his age playing in seniors. Sorry - it wasn't an entertaining spectacle just something that made me cringe.

You would also think he would improve with age - that was still no where near the quality of Rusedski's outburst at Wimbledon :-)

It's a circus act. Not very convincing either.

Didn't he say himself in an interview that now everyone expects him to behave like this? It's an act people.

It is unnaceptable behavior.

Tragic, just tragic. McEnroe cannot pull that off anymore. The act looks really tired. Drama is wonderful, when it's entertaining. He's bargain basement now.

Even when you watch him play, he acts like a junior on the court. I'm not convinced it's all an act, but most of it is. I think it's just his "image."

That's not an act - he was pissed.

Mac's a header!

It would be fine if he didn't swear so much, it's still funny though

Second that.


I don't like hypocrites, but even worse are the ones who think it's OK to be an asshole as long as you are not hypocritical.
