OurSports Central contributor Fran Stuchbury recently spoke to World TeamTennis New York Empire Coach Patrick McEnroe. The Empire will be playing its first season in WTT this summer. McEnroe won one singles title and 16 doubles titles, including the 1989 French Open Men's Doubles. He was ranked as high as World No. 28 in singles and World No. 3 in doubles and is the former captain of the United States Davis Cup team.
In World TeamTennis, Patrick McEnroe has seen and done it all. He played for six consecutive seasons with four different franchises, helped found the New York Hamptons (which became the New York Sportimes in 2003), performed double duty as a player and as a coach for the New York Hamptons in 2002, and recruited top junior tennis players to create the first all-junior WTT team for the New York Buzz in 2009. McEnroe also serves as a tennis commentator for ESPN. Patrick is the younger brother of John McEnroe.
