#throwbackthursday #tbt Tennis Indoor season is just around the corner. Here is a throwback to the 1982 U.S. Men’s Indoor National Championship in Memphis, Tennessee. Johan Kriek won the title beating John McEnroe in the final 6/3 3/6 6/4.
All together Johan and John McEnroe played each other over 20 times.
In his book “You Cannot be Serious,” John McEnroe described Johan as “one of the fastest human beings ever to step onto a tennis court.”
The last time Johan and John faced each other was at the 2010 Delray Beach Champions Tour event.
