Tennis - American tennis legend John McEnroe launched a commemorative book by the ATP that celebrates all the year-end world no. 1 s in the men's game over the last four decades.

Speaking at the event, McEnroe commented, "I first became World No. 1 at Memphis in March 1980. I got goose bumps thinking that I was ranked ahead of Bjorn Borg and Jimmy Connors. I didn’t think I quite deserved it yet. I thought I had more work to do. It was inspiring to hit that mark, but it made me want to improve myself. It took the better part of a year and a half when I was finally able to beat Bjorn in 1981 at Wimbledon and the US Open. So finally, going home in December, I could say ‘I am the best player in the world.’ That is the most amazing feeling a player can get. To me, I was one of the guys who valued being No. 1 more important at the end of the year, than how many majors I had. I am proud to see my name amongst those players.

The book is titled ‘No. 1’, and includes interviews as well as exclusive pictures.

The men who have been year-end world no.1s in the game are Ilie Nastase, Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, Mats Wilander, Stefan Edberg, Jim Courier, Pete Sampras, Andre Agassi, Gustavo Kuerten, Lleyton Hewitt, Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic.
