And McEnroe replying, “Good point.” Wow. 

(Didn’t Tatum O’Neal make allegations against Johnny Mac?)

They were said to have a volatile relationship.

In interviews, I remember Tatum O'Neal alleging that her father Ryan O'Neal was physically and emotionally abusive, which he denied. She also said that it was McEnroe's hot headedness that attracted her (she felt he was reminiscent of her father but claimed McEnroe was a much better man than her father), but she also claimed to have a worse temper than John, which she blamed her father for her temperament. She did once say that John  punched a wall, which seems pretty scary but coming from her violent upbringing, I guess it seemed milder in comparison. I do remember an interview where she stated that after a loss on the tennis court, McEnroe could be difficult to live with, as if she had to walk a tight-rope with him. (I can easily imagine at least one ATP player whose wife may feel the same after a loss.) What's most odd was to hear O'Neal express regret that she divorced McEnroe last year, but it is probably as a result of feeling vulnerable, with her having just been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and being single.

Well us open champion Emma...has fired her coach...she wants someone better...oh lord...

According to this article, they worked together for two years when she was a Junior player. They recently reunited in July.

Apparently, she wants a coach that has experience on the WTA Tour. I don't think her ex-coach will have much trouble finding a new player to coach.

It's a bit of an eyebrow raiser but it has happened on both Tours. Didn't Thiem dump someone on his coaching staff after the U.S. Open?

Lol

Actually the only one left from his team is his coach. There's a lot of backstage drama concerning his team and his injury.

LOL. I honestly didn't mean it as shade though. It just is what is it.

Actually, I think it's preferable to a player staying too long with a coach, like Venus did with David Witt (although her latest coach hasn't done sh*t for her game-Eric is lucky he's cute, ).

Lemme be the first to say that I am no big fan of Carillon, but she did stand behind her convictions in regards to the Sandgren stuff and she clearly stood behind her convictions in regards to this Zverev scandal.

By the way, BTR also has a YouTube channel and the podcast interview is also uploaded there.

Sloane only gets up for the Williams Sisters, Madison Keys and maybe Vika. Most of the rest of the time, she's half-asleep. Yet, I rarely hear her get told to retire, over and over, which hey, it's her prerogative, like any other player. Just saying, both Williams Sisters were playing consistently high-level tennis with a much stronger competitive field when they were Sloane's age.

Thanks for posting this! I'm a Carillo fan. Listening/Watching on YouTube. Mary believes the ex girlfriend allegations. I have seen and heard her commentary on Sascha matches and she always brings it up but the other commentator that's with ignores it. 

She was also very upset when it took TC forever to fire Gimelstob after his fiasco with his ex and her friend.

She even gave some shade to Roger for not saying anything about Sasha.....allowing him to play the laver cup. Her laughing that only top players were there when Nick and Jack Sock were there. 

I always wondered how they got paid. Now I know...glad she didn't call Sandgren match. I can't believe how much TC continues to pimp this person by showing his matches.

Did not expect this scoreline…

 

This guy is so Overhyped. Useless Patrick McEnroe is already saying he will win the French in 2 years. All his wins this year were 250s...he hasn't won a 500 yet much less a 1,000. I just saw he'll be seeded #6 at this weeks Indian Wells... talk about a depleted field.

    • Burke's death is absolutely a classic fake soap death that seemed primed for him to turn up alive (and maybe was intended to leave the door open). I fully expected to see him return when I was a kid watching on Sci-Fi, as I was already very familiar with the old plane crash chestnut from soaps. For whatever reason they never pulled the trigger though and just moved on to pairing Vicki with Roger Davis. Maybe they felt the Anthony George recast was not working and that the character was too uniquely paired with Mitch Ryan (who'd made himself unemployable due to his alcoholism). I also always loved the very dark note of ambiguity to Burke's presumed death: The possibility raised in the scripts, I believe, that Barnabas could have had something to do with his plane going down, perhaps by appearing on it.
    • Thanks  @DRW50  I needed a good chuckle.
