John McEnroe’s voice is one of the most recognizable voices in tennis. When he was a tennis player, he was arguing with umpires and driving them crazy with his on-court diatribe. After he retired, he became a staple in the commentary box providing his insights for the TV audience.

Recently, he has provided voice-over for Mindy Kaling’s Netflix show “Never Have I Ever”, a story of an Indian American high-school girl based on Kaling’s life. Kaling and McEnroe met at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in 2019 and Kaling offered the voice-over role to McEnroe.

McEnroe provides narration for Devi Vishwakumar, the show’s main character. The show has been extremely successful. Netflix just renewed the show for a third season. Of course, John McEnroe will return with his narration for the third season.

McEnroe won seven singles grand slam titles and nine doubles grand slam titles in his career. He helped the United States in five Davis Cup titles. He was also a Davis Cup captain for the US. McEnroe married to rock singer Patty Smyth in 1997 and lives in Manhattan.

Reilly Opelka Trolls US Open Organizers By Bringing Back His “Unapproved Bag”

Tote bags finally get the limelight they deserve. Danish player Holger Rune brought an IKEA tote bag for his match against Novak Djokovic. Yesterday, Reilly Opelka brought a pink tote bag for his match against Lloyd Harris.

The US Open officials deemed the logo on the Opelka’s bag as too big and fined him $10,000. The pink bag had the name,  ‘Tim Van Laere Gallery’ on one side. The gallery is based in Antwerp, Belgium and the bag was provided by Opelka’s sponsor, Wilson.

Opelka, known for his brutal honesty, called the fine a joke.

The head referee was telling me you should have come in and had this thing measured. We had that logo specifically made. We measured. It is too big. We made the effort to make it smaller. There was a mistake in production, I think, because in Europe with the conversion, with what was allowed. But I made the effort.

I thought (the fine) was a bit harsh, a bit excessive. My job is not to measure logos. My job is to win matches. I have bigger things to worry about.

You want to take away our prize money the whole time? I guess they’re making up for lost ticket sales last year. I’d love to see it get donated elsewhere. We’ve had a few tragedies here in the States the last couple weeks. If they are going to take 10K from me, it better not go to a major corporation. That’s my thought.

-Reilly Opelka

Undaunted, Opelka brought the same bag for his next match in an attempt to troll the organizers for the stupid fine.

The US Open has turned a blind eye towards long bathroom breaks and coaching from the stands. But the tournament has taken such a hard stance against the size of the logo. It makes them look out of touch.

Andy Roddick suggested that Opelka’s agent should find a bag sponsor that pays him more than the $10K fine. Companies can benefit from the publicity that the unapproved bag got.
