“You cannot be serious. You CANNOT BE SERIOUS!”
John McEnroe

“when you’re young, you feel invulnerable. I don’t feel invulnerable anymore.”
John McEnroe, Serious

“The Open era had brought personalities into the game, and personality was generating media exposure, which was generating more money, which in turn guaranteed more media exposure - which in turn drove in even more money. Where money and publicity meet, there’s always excitement, but good behavior is rarely a part of the mix. Manners are the operating rules of more stable systems.”
John McEnroe, Serious
