Default Enberg had a premonition

Was watching the Yannick Noah-Mats Wilander 1983 French Open final last night on the Tennis Channel. Besides the joy of seeing actual shot variety on clay, I caught a comment Dick Enberg made that made him look like a prophet.

After Noah put away another smash with some serious vertical leap, Enberg says something to the effect of "Red Auerbach may be calling Noah on the phone tomorrow". Auerbach being the famous coach and GM of the Boston Celtics during their dominance of the NBA.

Little did Enberg know that 23 and 24 years later, Noah's son would be winning the NCAA basketball championship twice and becoming a top 5 NBA draft pick.
