    Thanks, overcaffeinated. A friend of mine is a big fan of Johnny Mac; she’ll be excited to see this.

      You’re welcome M. Was a lovely surprise to read this news today. I never was a fan of Lendl during his playing days, and developed my appreciation for him as a player + personality a few years after he finished playing. Really was taken by an in-depth interview I saw with him on a local sport program; then also in reading + listening to his post match interviews. He just displayed this entirely different personality – serious, though exceptionally tuned in and acutely sharp with humour or a snide comment to an idiotic question / press-person.

      Will be interesting to see how he plays these days and how long it may take for him to get back in the swing… this with consideration that Mc and co. have been around on this tour for quite some time and didn’t step away from the game for as long. Sure, these guys may be slower these days, however I love the fact that tennis is a sport that can allow for a person to keep playing it effectively for many moons.
