He joined the circuit in 1978 and it took him only three years to attain the No. 1 ranking.
The 1980 Wimbledon final, between McEnroe and Bjorn Borg, is considered by many tennis experts to be the best match ever.
Borg defeated McEnroe in a five set thriller 1-6, 7-5, 6-3, 6-7, 8-6, capturing his fifth straight Wimbledon title. In 1981, both McEnroe and Borg returned to the Wimbledon final for the much anticipated rematch and after four close sets, McEnroe had his first Wimbledon title.
In doubles, McEnroe is recognised as the best player of all time. He was ranked 1 for a record 257 weeks and captured a total of 74 titles, including eight Grand Slams.
During the 1993/94 season, McEnroe played in a special event on the Champions Tour, the Champions Challenge in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
