Tennis legend John McEnroe has provided analysis for CBS Sports' coverage of the U.S. Open Tennis Championships since 1995. He was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in July 1999. As team captain, McEnroe led the United States to the 2000 Davis Cup semifinals. He resigned in November 2000 and was replaced by his brother, Patrick. John had represented the United States in the Davis Cup for 12 years, leading the team to five titles and two other finals appearances and finishing with a career record of 59-10 (41-8 in singles and 18-2 in doubles).
Considered one of the most technically accomplished players in the history of tennis, McEnroe was ranked the world's No. 1 player for four consecutive years (1981-84). During his 16-year professional career, he captured 77 singles titles, including four U.S. Open and three Wimbledon championships. McEnroe also is one of the foremost doubles players in the history of tennis, having won five times at Wimbledon and four times at the U.S. Open. He also combined with fellow CBS analyst Mary Carillo to win the mixed-doubles title at the 1977 French Open.
He also serves as analyst for NBC's broadcasts of the French Open and Wimbledon. McEnroe was born in Wiesbaden, Germany, on Feb. 16, 1959, and lives in New York and Malibu, Calif. He is currently involved with the Safe Passage Foundation, an organization founded by the late Arthur Ashe, which provides tennis instruction and educational counseling to 6000 inner-city youths. McEnroe's autobiography, You Cannot Be Serious, was published in 2002.
