Meet Your Tennis Pros

John McEnroe
John McEnroe is an American tennis legend and a titan of the sport. As a singles player, he was ranked #1 in the world four times. He holds multiple Open Era records for a male tennis player, including the best annual singles match record (his 1984 run of 82-3) and the most combined singles and doubles titles (at 77 and 78 respectively). Known just as much for his fiery temperament as for his superb tennis skills, including a volley touch that has been called the best in tennis history, John is an Emmy-nominated sports analyst recognized as “the voice of tennis.” He offers up expert analysis and television commentary for five worldwide television networks covering all four Grand Slam tournaments (Australian Open / French Open / Wimbledon / US Open).

John won a total of seven Grand Slam titles over his illustrious career – four at the US Open and three at Wimbledon. His 1980 Wimbledon men’s singles final against Bjorn Borg is considered one of the best, if not the best, tennis match in history. In addition to his success on the singles circuit, he also had a prolific career as a doubles player, most notably with his longtime doubles partner Peter Fleming. All told, John won nine Grand Slam doubles titles and was ranked #1 in doubles for 270 weeks.

In addition to being a tennis hall-of-famer, John is also a global pop culture icon and a passionate philanthropist. He started his Johnny Mac Tennis Project, a non-profit, in 2012 which removed economic, racial, and structural barriers to success through tennis and has reached over 6,000 kids throughout New York City. For years, he co-chaired with CityParks a tennis fundraiser for New York City’s largest municipal youth tennis programs. Today he continues to spread his love of tennis through various projects and programs across the world.
Patrick McEnroe
Patrick McEnroe enjoyed success as a player on both the collegiate and professional levels, and since then as a tennis commentator for ESPN, and as a renowned coach and team captain.

In December 2000, Patrick was named the 38th U.S. Davis Cup captain, bringing home the title in 2007 for the USA for the first time since 1995. He resigned from that position in September 2010, having served in the role longer than anyone in history. In April 2008, he was named General Manager, USTA Elite Player Development, as part of a new strategic direction for the development of future American champions (title later changing to General Manager, Player Development). He also was coach of the 2004 U.S. Olympic men’s tennis team.

Most of Patrick’s professional playing success came in doubles where he reached a career-high ranking of #3 in April 1997. He won 16 titles, the gold medal at the 1987 Pan American Games with Luke Jensen, the French Open title in 1989 with Jim Grabb, and the Paris Indoors with his brother John in 1992. In 1991, he was also runner-up in the men’s doubles at the Australian Open, partnering with his former Stanford teammate David Wheaton. Patrick was selected to represent his country in the Davis Cup competition in 1993, 1994, and 1996.

At the stone heart of the lodge burns a glowing fire, which is kept constantly alight. Rooms are looped around the Crater rim.
