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.

John McEnroe Defaulted at 1990 Australian Open On January 21, 1990, tennis great John McEnroe was defaulted from the Australian Open after accruing three code violations in his fourth-round match versus Mikael Pernfors. McEnroe was unaware that the rule had recently been changed regarding defaults. Previously it had taken four code violations for a player to be defaulted (with the penalties being warning, point, game, and finally default). The new rule eliminated the game penalty. Despite a career checkered with bad behavior, McEnroe's disqualification from the Australian Open was the only instance where his on-court deportment got him kicked out of a tourney. (He and doubles partner Peter Fleming once had to default a match at the U.S. Open when a traffic jam caused them to be late for a match.) Tellingly, McEnroe said in the post-match press conference, "It was bound to happen."

Wimbledon Streaker - 1996 A young female streaker, wearing a big smile and little else, pranced across Centre Court moments before the men's 1996 Wimbledon final. The 23-year-old streaker's name was Melissa Johnson. With her courage bolstered by a few drinks, Johnson climbed over a barrier at one end of the court and dashed the length of its periphery--passing in front of finalists Richard Krajicek and MaliVai Washington as they posed near the net for pre-match photographs. Johnson, who had been working at a Wimbledon pizza stand, wore only a tiny maid's apron. She was quickly escorted off the court near the Royal Box by two policemen. Both players broke into laughter, as did most of the 14,000 fans. Washington paused a moment and then doubled over trying to contain his laughter. Walking back to the baseline to begin his warmup, the American lifted up his tennis shirt to bare his own chest and received a large ovation. "I look over and I see this streaker ..." said Washington, who lost to Krajicek in straight sets. "Gee, she smiles at me. She had on an apron. She lifted it up and she was still smiling at me. I got flustered, and three sets later I was gone. ... That was pretty funny." Johnson was taken to Wimbledon police station where she was held until the end of the match. A Scotland Yard spokeswoman said "no further action" would be taken. Usually stiff and proper, the All England Club was unexpectedly light-hearted regarding the moment. "Whilst we do not wish to condone the practice, it did at least provide some light amusement for our loyal and patient supporters, who have had a trying time during the recent bad weather," a club statement said. A Centre Court spectator, 57-year-old travel agent Peter Goord, said Johnson's streak even drew a humorous reaction from the royals in attendance. "When she got in front of the Royal Box, she lifted it up and showed everything off," Goord said. "The Duke of Kent was laughing like mad. She then ran into the policemen's arms. There was no way she was trying to get away." Wimbledon officials had expressed concern before the opening of the tournament that a streaker might appear--coaxed on by several of Britain's large bookmakers offering odds on it happening. Before the tournament, William Hill bookmakers reduced the odds on a streaker interrupting Centre Court play during the final to 4-1. John McEnroe, doing commentary for NBC, apparently approved of the goings-on. "We need a replay from every possible angle!" he excitedly exclaimed. His broadcast partner, the distinguished Dick Enberg, reminded McEnroe that it was "a family show." Replied McEnroe, "My family would love it!!!"

McEnroe vs Connors - Wimbledon 1977 At the 1977 edition of Wimbledon, a surprise semifinalist in the men's draw was 18-year-old John McEnroe. To even get into the main draw McEnroe had to win three qualifying matches. He then won five matches in the main draw to earn a match with Jimmy Connors. It was the first of 34 career meetings between the two American stars. Here are three minutes of highlights from that 1977 Connors-McEnroe Wimbledon semifinal, won by Connors 6-3, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4. McEnroe hadn't yet developed his famous and unique serving style. If you listen closely, you'll also notice that the chair umpire didn't quite get the pronunciation of McEnroe's last name correct!
