i finished mcenroe's book in under one day. i guess i liked it just a few things in it, mcenroe seems pretty honest with his feelings. wrote things we aren't supposed to say. para-phrasing here but he didn't seem to want his brother to be too successful in tennis or his doubles partner peter fleming to be happy in love.. my brother comment might be off, but it's hard to describe his feelings. huge feud with connors.... connors (and mcenroe) both come off looking like jerks. and i think mcenroe really dispels connors love affair with the fans. it was all for connors benefit, he didn't actually care about the fans. (again para-phrasing). hated that jimmy seldom played davis cup. absolute worship for bjorn borg.... mac loved the guy unbelievably... borg said that being #2 or lower was absolutely pointless. mcenroe isn't so sure, although he likes the money. lendl was a robot...... choked for the longest time, and then mcenroe choked losing to him. that was the monkey off lendl's back and then he went on to alot of major wins. some sampras, chang and agassi in the book, but doesn't really get into their personalities. mcenroe is pained horribly to this day over his 1984 2 sets to none loss to ivan lendl at FO (can't remember if this was monkey off back match, don't think it was) hooked up with tatum at the peak of his career and NEVER won another major. LOL..... doesn't rip tatum that badly at all in the book. and is pretty vague about drug use (other reviewers) said he was very specific) who was the major celebrity he dated in new york in early-mid 80's? he said older, single mother with two kids in manhattan ... one name jumps to mind, but she must be too old. two tennis tips that were helpful to me and they are mcenroe-centric (meaning they may not be good for us) hit everything on the rise and come forward. wrist acceleration for spin serve way out wide. like a knife thrower. very enjoyable book... any others out there i should read. maybe bjorn borg.
