NYC Native Will Focus On Years As Businessman And Broadcaster

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) John McEnroe is ready for another round of memoir writing.

The former tennis champ has an agreement with Little, Brown and Company for a book, currently untitled, that’s scheduled for 2014.

The publisher announced Monday that McEnroe will focus on his years as a businessman and tennis broadcaster.

The 54-year-old McEnroe wrote a previous memoir, the best-selling “You Cannot Be Serious.” In the 1970s and ’80s, he won three Wimbledon singles titles and four U.S. Open titles.

The former top-ranked singles player in the world grew up in Douglaston, Queens, and started playing tennis at the Douglaston Club when he was eight years old. At the age of 12, McEnroe joined the Port Washington Tennis Academy on Long Island.

In 1977, the New York City native graduated from Trinity School in Lower Manhattan. He went on to win his first major championship, the mixed doubles at the French Open, that same year.
