I have never seen anyone so aggressive, angery or ignorant on a tennis court, even hearing his name can strike fear into any ballboy or girl in the world. People compare him to mac but he did all his antics in good humor and never once did i hear him yell COME ON after a opponents unfortunate unforced error.
St. Mac was a tennis artist whose deft touch and sublime hands were unequaled. His play harkens back to the halcyon days of tennis when pushing was tantamount to capitulation and dedication to fitness the modus operandi of the untalented who had no other recourse.
Criticisms of Mac's outbursts are from armchair sloths who simply don't understand genius even when it is in plain sight, right in front of them. Anyone who has spent time with the extremely gifted knows they are volatile by nature. They see and perceive things simpleton spectators and officials cannot, so it is hardly baffling when they become flustered at our mundane ignorance. To compare a legend like McEnroe to a colicky one-slam hack like Murray is akin to comparing Michelangelo to Student Pro Painters.
