Patrick McEnroe  

Former Professional Tennis Player, General Manager of USTA Player Development

Patrick John McEnroe is a former professional tennis player and the former Captain of the United States Davis Cup team. He is also the younger brother of John McEnroe and the former General Manager of USTA Player Development.

Patrick was a world-class player. He was particularly successful in doubles, winning 17 professional titles including the 1989 French Open men's doubles.

In 1989, McEnroe won the French Open men's doubles title and the Masters doubles title partnering Jim Grabb.

His first career singles final came in 1991 at Chicago, where he faced his brother John. John won the match 3-6, 6-2, 6-4. (This was the second time in tour history where two brothers faced each other in a tournament final.)

McEnroe's best Grand Slam singles performance came at the 1991 Australian Open, where he reached the semi-finals before being knocked-out by eventual-champion Boris Becker. McEnroe won the men's singles at the Sydney Outdoor Championships in 1995, to claim his first and only career singles title. He also had some notable Grand Slam singles results that year, beating Boris Becker in the first round of the Australian Open, and then reaching the quarter-finals of the US Open where he lost to Becker in an epic four-hour and seven-minute four-set marathon.

McEnroe retired from the professional tour in 1998. His career-high singles ranking was World No. 28 in 1995. His career-high doubles ranking was World No. 3 in 1993.

In the Davis Cup, Patrick represented his country as a doubles player in 1993, 1994 and 1996, compiling a 3-1 record. In 2000, after older-brother John resigned following an uphappy 14-month spell as Captain, Patrick was named the 38th Captain of the United States Davis Cup team.

He served as the General Manager of UTSA Player Development from 2008 to 2014 and has also worked as a sportscaster for ESPN.
