His brother, that is...the other brother, Mark Mcenroe ;)

He is the brother of John Mcenroe and plays a lot like him, right down to the serve and volley style and the weird stance when he serves. I played him this morning in the semifinals of the mens singles championships at the club (I got in as a "wild card" by winning the junior event and he has won this three years in a row.) We both won our first two matches easily but I got outplayed by him. I don't like playing lefties or serve and volleyers and I got both :eek: He has an amazing serve and great volleys as well a solid forehand. I recently changed my game to a serve and volley style a month ago and its obviously going to take time, but if I could ever volley like he does lol. I was a little annoyed because I went down 5-2, fought off six set points with him serving at 5-3 to go to 4-5, and then promptly lost my serve with some bad play. He ended up going from there and beat me 6-4 6-2, but it was a still good experience...

LOL well my volleys were always my best shot since I was a little kid, its just hard to make your way up there with a slice backhand ;) Hopefully I dont have the same results Daja is having in her transition :p

If you don't have the serve like Pete has then stick to baseline, it will make your future better.;) this is exactly the reason why Tim Henman can't win Wimby.;)
