As I was watching the youtube video, from another thread, "Mac's Distinct Service Motion", a '78 match between Arthur and John. I wondered what the two player's relationship was like? They were 15 years apart, Ashe being the senior. I know that Ashe eventually became the US Davis Cup coach where McEnroe played under him. Was the relationship close, cordial, professional, indifferent? More importanly, how did McEnroe view Ashe after his diagnosis, and after Ashe's passing? I am curios because this was the era in tennis I followed in my high school days, having stopped for a long period till my daughter started junior tennis 3 years ago. Thanks.
