Only 2 colors exist in the world of John McEnroe - black and white. Brash and opinionated. Either you love him for his court side antics or hate him for his angry outburst during play. However, there is no denying in the former #1 tennis player's achievements. A total of 71 titles, including 7 Grand Slams. But one Grand Slam tournament, the U.S. Open, held a special place in McEnroe's heart. It was his first major win in 1979, a year after he turned pro. It was also his last Grand Slam title when he won in 1984, the best year of his professional tennis career.
