I beg to differ. I often play against a guy who's about McEnroe's age and plays EXACTLY like McEnroe. He hits everything on the rise with a continental grip and uses his opponent's power against them. His placement and accuracy are incredible. He can hit the ball within an inch of the baseline 100 times without ever hitting it out, and he can place the ball just a hair out of your reach every time you attack the net. He uses precision placement rather than pace and spin to beat you and it's so hard to get the ball past him. He also serves and has volleys just like McEnroe, with incredible hands.
