McEnroe was my favorite rogue player. I still have fun watching him on TV as commentator. People never really change, they just get older.
Yes, Tanner had a huge serve, I recall.
McEnroe was my favorite in the 1980s, too. Although I do not follow pro tennis much any more, I did tune in to watch a few minutes of the Nadal match. Were you watching it when McEnroe was going off about some fan sitting in a front row behind one of the players and who was not settled into his seat, delaying the play? He soon apologized to his fellow announcers for his mild outburst, claiming that it "brought back some nightmares!" LOL!
Retired in late 2008 at age 45. Cashed in company stock, bought a lot of shares in a big bond fund and am living nicely off its dividends. IRA, SS, and a pension await me at age 60 and later. No kids, no debts.
