I caught John McEnroe vs Michael Pernfors in a senior match (played this month at Albert Hall in London) on the Tennis channel. There was some good competitive tennis here. McEnroe won 7-6(3), 6-4. But McEnroe's ranting and raving and berating of the line calling was disturbing. I know some of this is for a show for the fans, that Johhny Mac thinks he has to live up to the reputation of the ranting and raving bad boy on the court for the sake of the fans, but in my opinion it wasn't working. If he did it with a little sense of humor it might work, but he did it with a sense of nastiness to the officials that just didn't go over. He should have probably limited his tirades to a shout of "You cannot be serious!" in mock horror and with hands on hips. That might have got a laugh from the fans and might have worked, but the way he did it, it was embarrasing and disruptive to the match. Anyone else think this act, or the way McEnroe is pursuing it, is wearing thin and is unseemly.
