Mcenroe needs to show some respect...
 
First off I love Mac and he is my favorite all-time player. But after wtching a taped broadcast of May's Champions Cup I was really annoyed with him. Pete came back to have fun and all Mac did was whine and complain and show Pete no respect. I have always stuck up for Mac when he acted like a clown, but I finally woke up to what people have been saying about his antics (post retirement).

I mean these are not Major tourney's for freak's sake. I wish there was a Hawkeye (or whatever its called) to show Mac how often he is wrong.

I saw Pete smile and laugh playing Korda and Mayotte....not nearly as much because of Mac's behavior. I know these threads have been out there, but I always stuck up for the guy...he is yelling for show...HE IS NOT. He is a headcase and I am getting more annoyed watching this match.

I've always loved Mac too but his antics are just way over the edge these days. It's really sad when he has his little tirades and is cursing all over the place. Young children are there watching and it's truly in bad taste. It would be funny if he did it playfully but most of the time he doesn't. Dude needs to chill on the tennis court like he does off it.

Agreed...its not playfull. I used to stick up for the guy...boy was I wrong. I understood his tirades in the old days (matches mattered), but not today. Look how much Pete was smiling, Mayotte was joking and the other players. But Mac has to be in counseling....has to be.

Yeah, I hope he doesn't, as my grandma used to say, "show his 'yes m'am' " next month when him and Pete come to my town for an exhibition match! I love the guy too. He was a bit of a stick in the mud at the FO in the doubles match against Gomez/Nastase too. NOW who's serious, huh? These are the days of his life he can actually just have fun on the courts but he's still the same ole mac. I guess you gotta give him that, he's still got edge.
