in the 1985 u s open final mcenroe was a victim of played the 2nd semi final on (non) super saturday..a 5 set thriller in hot conditions v wilander..

mcenroe core fitness was starting to go down by this point due to off court lifestyle etc...so mac was tired and facing a fresher lendl who had (i think) an easy 3 set win vs connors in the first semi...

mcenroe lost his title and his world no1 rank forever..cue mcenroes lost weekend lasting 7 months.
