McEnroe Tossed from Senior Tennis Tournament

Submitted by on August 16, 2008 – 4:25 amNo Comment

McEnroe’s back at it again. It has been reported that just a few hours ago at the Hall of Fame Champions Cup in Newport Rhode Island, McEnroe, who was playing Mal Washington, lost it in the second set after a disagreement over a line call. The outburst resulted in three penalties which handed Washington the set 6-2. As reported by Bob Larson’s Tennis News, this is what ensued:

According to the Outback Champions Series Code of Conduct, match defaults are a four-step process, with the first violation resulting in a warning. The second violation results in a point penalty, a third violation – a game penalty and a fourth violation – a match default. McEnroe’s three violations gave Washington the second set 6-2 (the point penalty giving Washington the game for a 5-2 lead and the game penalty giving him the set by a 6-2 margin.) As McEnroe continued his tirade, fans at the Newport Casino became vocal and restless and began to yell at McEnroe to continue playing. McEnroe responded to the fans with a visible obscene gesture which resulted in a fourth code violation from Brodeur and McEnroe’s immediate default from the match.

Thank you Mr. McEnroe, you make tennis enjoyable.
