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.
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?
Budget or no budget doesn't excuse giving fans a shitty ending.
Henry with Barbara... Wtf??
Margo giving Katie her house and moving into Katie tiny apartment.
Reid dies and Luke is left alone.
Emily and Paul marry....in what planet? Their version was super toxic. Hell KMH Emily left RH Paul to die from her own hands.
I don't recall anything good or memorable about the show's ending.
It boils my blood every time I think or discuss the ending of this show.
Goutman is garbage!!
Actually it was pretty good..he has a definite point of view which I don't have on his choices but...he admits that CBS wanted ATWT gone and P & G wanted out of the business, which we all knew...but he seems to shrug off some of the cancellation on that and that there was not turning back...he does discuss the budget and using the vets and how he wasnt happy on how the show looked at the end and that they had to film outside as they didnt have money to buy a fake tree...He talks about the demos but he does seem to really buy into "young actors bring in the demos" and the old chestnut that Hogan was AMAZING. I liked that we found out that Helen Wagner did not take anyone's [!@#$%^&*]..and he never mentions Eileen even if Alan brought her up along with the other vets. He seemed more genuine then JFP and happy in what he is doing and saying that "that ship has sailed" in terms of helming another soap.
