John McEnroe Defaulted at 1990 Australian Open John McEnroe was only defaulted twice in his pro tennis career. Once was when he and doubles partner Peter Fleming were stuck in traffic and arrived late for their match at the US Open. The other time was at the 1990 Australian Open, as this clip shows. Prior to 1990, a player was defaulted only after a fourth code violation. McEnroe had forgotten the new rule and was disqualified after the third code violation.

Prior to 1990, the code violations resulted in a warning, a point penalty, a game penalty, and a default. The new rule eliminated the game penalty. if anyone should have been keenly aware of this rule change, it ought to have been McEnroe.
