Yes, an intelligent analysis. I have seen McEnroe play live in the 80s, 90s, and about 2 years ago. I agree his swing speed is faster than 99% of all poly users in the world. Yes, he likes gut but if were trying to compete now with current ATP players, I could see him going with gut mains/poly cross at low tension. Not saying he should switch now as he beat Sampras recently on the senior tour so I guess he is doing pretty well with what he is using.
