"It was more than just Yao Ming rolling to 28 pints and 8 rebounds, more than Tracy McGrady putting up another Magic-line of 19 points, 13 assists and 5 rebounds."
John McEnroe, one of the greatest tennis players in history, had an on-court meltdown in Memphis that nearly cost him an eye. In a losing match with Wayne Ferriera in the Stanford Championships, a seniors event at the Racquet Club, McEnroe bent over and smashed a ball on the court in anger during the tiebreaker after the players had split the first two sets. The ball bounced up and hit McEnroe in the face, either on or near his eye. He remained bent over for about a minute holding his eye as the crowd hushed and Ferriera walked around to McEnroes side of the court to see if he was all right. For all the flashes of his famous temper, McEnroe also demonstrated the brilliance that made him the number-one player in the world for part of the 1980s.
