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."
