John McEnroe made waves from his very first Wimbledon in 1977. An eighteen-year-old qualifier from Queens, New York, he stunned the tennis world by reaching the semi-finals, and shocked it with his on-court behaviour. What followed was a double act of technique and temperament that set the sport alight: SuperMac; the sublime, unorthodox genius, whose 1980 Wimbledon duel with Bjorn Borg - including that tie-break - was as breathtaking as it was unforgettable; Superbrat, the foul-mouthed fireball, furiously yelling at officials, fans, players and himself alike.
John McEnroe can be serious. He can also be humorous, impassioned, candid and controversial. This is his astonishing story: an autobiography as enthralling and as inspiring as the great man himself.
