About John McEnroe
McEnroe is regarded as one of the most talented and well-known players in tennis history. He won seven major singles titles, including four at the US Open (1979-1981, 1984) in his hometown of New York, in addition to winning 10 other major titles in doubles and mixed doubles. He won Wimbledon three times (1981, 1983-1984), and was involved in perhaps the greatest Wimbledon final of all time, losing to Bjorn Borg in 1980, featuring the famous 18-16 fourth-set tie-breaker. McEnroe helped the United States win the Davis Cup five times and he captured 77 career singles titles and 78 career doubles titles, his last being in San Jose, California in 2006 at the age of 47. Age 55, McEnroe recently won the points title on the 2014 PowerShares Series champions tennis circuit, prompting Courier to label him as the “greatest 55-year-old tennis player to ever grace the earth.”
About Jim Courier
Courier is regarded as one of the most tenacious tennis players of all time – and with one of the biggest forehands – that led him to a pair of French Open titles in 1991 and 1992 and two Australian Open titles in 1992 and 1993. In 1992, he became the first American to reach the No. 1 ranking on the ATP World Tour since McEnroe in 1985. In 1993, Courier was the youngest player to reach all four major singles finals in a career when he reached the Wimbledon final in 1993 at age 22. He also guided the U.S. to Davis Cup titles in 1992, where he was teammates with McEnroe, Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi on the described U.S. “Dream Team,” and again in 1995. He currently serves as the captain of the U.S. Davis Cup team and competes on the PowerShares Series tennis circuit.
