Commentator Patrick McEnroe positive for virus


Former U.S. Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe said in a video posted on social media that he tested positive for the coronavirus.

McEnroe, younger brother of eight-time major champion John McEnroe, said he took a drive-through test in Westchester County, New York, after developing what he called “minor symptoms” about 10 days ago.

Patrick McEnroe said: “The good news is I feel fine. My symptoms have passed. I feel, really, 100 percent.”

McEnroe is a tennis commentator for ESPN, sometimes working alongside his brother in the booth.

As a player, he won one tournament in singles and 16 in doubles, including the 1989 French Open.

He succeeded his brother as Davis Cup captain and served in that job for nearly a decade, leading the United States to the title in 2007.

The younger McEnroe also served as general manager of player development for the U.S. Tennis Association.
