Old Johnny Mac stated that Hingis retired rather than get fit to compete with the big babes and Mary C. had to tell this fool that Martina had several ankle surgeries that were not completely successful.

That info is world wide common knowledge to tennis fans and a competent analyst should have known this fact.

But, I guess Johnny is too concerned trying to line up a money match with SERENA or VENUS to do the homework for his job. :rolleyes:

I guess he was trying to work up a match with Capriati. :}

or maybe that's what he really thinks .... he's not alone either ...

Not a view i hold, but I don't think it's completely ludicrous.

Yo, I have been saying for about two years that JMac has been trying to go up in Cap. It's obvious when he talks about her.

"She'll be back within the year."--

John McEnroe, upon hearing that Martina Hingis is taking Cambridge correspondence courses in Zurich to become an interpreter.

Tell me about it, he was so insensitive. He went at Hingis like she just shrugged her shoulders and gave up. Who doesn't know her feet are/were injured very badly? She said she could not play without pain.

Typical sexist John, he's even taking shots at Jennifer.

The man is a sexist, what do you expect from him. He has no respect for women's tennis.

I think that Johnny met Marti in Paris, knowing that she had broken up with ratboy Sergio and was vulnerable, he probably made a move on her and was shot down.
Thus the vicious on camera personal attack on little Chucky.

Mac the Rat. :)

Of all the crap people talk about John, and all the fault people try and find with him, this is the first thing that could make me genuinely lose respect for him.

LOL, except for the fact that Martina is two or three boyfriends past Sergio.

Prediction: By the time McEnroe is 50 he will have a 3rd wife who comes from the tennis circuit, is blonde and 20 years younger. My picks in this order: 1)Harkleroad 2)Kournikova 3)Vera:eek:

Only problem with that is that Harkleroad and Zvonareva are closer to 30 years younger, not 20. And the correct answer is probably Barabanschikova.

Don't worry. I don't think sex together is their habit of choice;)

Mac should stick to what he knows and loves best--HIMSELF!
Go back to your guitar
and wanna-be-a-rocker life, Mac.
Your lack of respect for the women pros is
not appreciated.

I wish Serena would take on Mac and beat his ass :p

Anyway, didn't Mac also say Anna K didn't show because she couldn't get in the draw (when in reality it's because she's injured)? Either Mac or Ted said that inaccurate bit of info.

He really annoys me. Just hearing his voice annoys me. I actually mute the TV sometimes when he's commentating.

I was watching the Venus 3rd round match, and it was just too difficult for him to talk about women's tennis. He started off with a quick comment about the improved depth of the women's game, but then quickly shifted to the men's game--which he spent about several minutes on. Then he started talking about Italian last names. The whole while I was furious. He shouldn't be allowed to cover the women's game. He has absolutely no respect for it, IMO.

But then she'd only piss you off in the post-match interview when she talks about how she dropped 6 games because of her own errors and doesn't acknowledge that it was JMs experience at the net that caused her the problems.

You have this information reversed...it was Mary Carillo who made the comment about Martina not being able to compete with the big babes....Cliff mentioned she had the ankle surgeries and Johnny Mc said he'll see her on the court next year!! :rolleyes:

I would like to know why this Hall of Fame player is so damn desperate to play against women?
Is he that desperate for:
1. attention
2. money
3. a win over anybody
4. to hear his own voice

Don't be thrown off by John's sarcasim! ;) And he really is a fine analyst! But Patrick is my favorite McEnroe brother! :D
