Return of the Mac

McEnroe is back in town for his annual stint in the Wimbledon commentary box. I like McEnroe - hey who doesn't these days, even the media (no, especially the media) love him these days.

But of course it wasn't always that way. Back when he was a champion the British media, particularly, the tabs, used to give him a real hard time.

Nowadays McEnroe, the elder statesman of the game(!!) gives good headline and the press lap it up. Here's a selection from todays papers.

I think McEnroe's pretty on point with his assessment. Talent-wise, I think Murray should definitely be considered among the top five players out there. There's so many other things holding him back.
