John McEnroe Wiki Biography

John Patrick McEnroe, Jr. was born on 18 February 1959, in Wiesbaden, (then) West Germany, and is a former number one-ranked tennis player, known for winning several Grand Slam, WCT Finals and Masters Grand Prix titles. In 1999 John was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. What is more, he was the Number 1-ranked Male Tennis Player for a total of 170 weeks, won the Davis Cup Commitment Award, ATP Player of the Year Award among others, during a career which spanned almost 30 years. Although John has retired from professional tennis, he still occasionally plays in senior events on the ATP Champions Tour.

So how rich is John McEnroe? It is estimated by authoritative sources that John’s net worth is over $70 million, the majority accumulated during his successful career as a tennis player. Despite the fact that John does not play professional tennis anymore, there is still a chance that his net worth will change in the future, as he still involved in many activities, including as a tennis commentator and analyst.

John’s father was in the US Air Force, but discharged soon after John’s birth, and the family moved to settle in New York City. McEnroe started playing tennis when he was only eight years old, and one year later he became a part of the Eastern Lawn Tennis Association, and began participating in tournaments. John was really successful,  and soon became more noticed in the tennis world. In 1977 he competed at Wimbledon and then turned professional and joined the ATP tour. Soon McEnroe won his first Masters Grand Prix Title and this added a lot to John McEnroe’s net worth. In 1981 John became the first male player since the 1920s to win three consecutive US Open titles. This made McEnroe even more popular and acclaimed.

In 1984 together with the US team, John McEnroe won the World Team Cup. Despite the success he had, in 1986 John decided to take a break from tennis, but when he came back he again demonstrated his skills and became the World’s No. 1 male tennis player. This had a huge impact on the growth of John McEnroe’s net worth. John subsequently finished his full-time career having won 77 career singles titles, including seven Grand Slam events – four at Wimbledon and three US – as well as five WCT Finals. Additionally, he won 78 doubles titles, usually in partnership with Peter Fleming, including five at Wimbledon and four at the US, plus the French mixed doubles title with Mary Carillo in 1977.

When playing for his country, McEnroe was instrumental in winning the Davis Cup five times with the US team, between 1978 and 1992, and has since also captained the team, a non-playing appoinment.

However, McEnroe was nothing if not controversial, and his on-court outbursts against officials became legendary, especially his catch-phrase “you cannot be serious!” directed at umpires in particular. He was actually disqualified from the Grand Slam Australian Open in 1990 for repeated conduct violations, but nothing seemed to calm his behaviour throughout his career, except when playing against Bjorn Borg – known as ‘the ice man’. They split their 14 regular matches on the ATP tour.

In 1992 John decided to retire, but because of his fame, then appeared in such movies as “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”. He has also participated in various events related to tennis and sometimes even played on the ATP Champions Tour. In 2010 he founded the John McEnroe Tennis Academy, and this has also added to John’s net worth, as has his TV commentating and and analysis of major tournaments.

Talking of his personal life, John McEnroe was married to actress Tatum O’Neal from 1986 to 1994, and since 1997 has been married to Patty Smyth – now the couple has six children, and are based in New York City.
