In an interview, Patrick McEnroe spoke about the beauty of tennis. The American said: "Every match is different. So even if it’s two great players that you know inside out — Federer and [Rafael] Nadal, the great thing about tennis is it’s always going to be different.
It’s always going to happen in front of you. So while it’s always good to have some things, you think about some points you like to make in a particular match, but I think the most important thing is to react to what you see because that’s what the people are seeing.
You’re going to react to what’s going on in the court." On the US Open that saw a lot of headlines coming out, McEnroe added: "I think that it’s definitely a lot of buzz this year. I’m not going to say rowdier, but the New York crowd is definitely the rowdiest of all the Grand Slams.
I would say that there’s a lot of buzz, obviously, with Serena coming back after what she went through last year. Certainly, Coco Gauff’s story has been huge for the whole tournament. There are quite a few good stories of young Americans who are doing well."
A former world no. 1 in doubles, McEnroe has been the vice-captain for Team World at the Laver Cup for the last three years alongside his brother, John McEnroe who is Team World's captain.
