NEWPORT BEACH — The Superbrat waited for one tennis legend to stop her filibuster and a current star to remove herself from his seat. John McEnroe was back at it, being his usual cranky self. This time before Wednesday night's festivities even started at the Breakers Stadium at Newport Beach Country Club. McEnroe interrupted the feisty Billie Jean King and then upstaged her. Tough to do. Then he unseated Maria Sharapova faster than her appearance at this year's Wimbledon.

Richard Dunn NEWPORT BEACH - Sitting alone on a stage in front of dozens of fans in a so-called press conference, Yannick Noah didn't want to discuss his so-called collapse in the "so-called championship tie-breaker," which is the way the chair umpire announced it Friday night. While Success Magazine Champions Tour promoters might have cringed at the umpire's "so-called" reference, they probably breathed a sigh of relief when headliner John McEnroe came back from a 3-6 deficit in the championship tie-breaker to beat Noah, 6-7 (6-8)

NEWPORT BEACH — The first serve John McEnroe hit was an ace Thursday night. McEnroe, now 51, appeared humble in the World Team Tennis match at The Tennis Club Newport Beach. "It's the first [ace] I've got in 30 years," he said. It was early; the humility could only last so long. Ten minutes later in the men's doubles set, he was back to the fiery personality, yelling at a lineswoman after a call didn't go his way and putting his hands on his hips in that trademark pouty attitude the 17-time Grand Slam winner made famous.

NEWPORT BEACH — Newport Beach missed the heated John McEnroe. The Hall of Famer last week ripped into an opponent, stepping on his side of the tennis court after a ball intentionally hit a teammate. It was vintage McEnroe, never backing down. McEnroe did not have to put up a fight Tuesday night. That is because he saw the Newport Beach Breakers lay down. By the time the 50-year-old stepped on the court at Breakers Stadium, his New York Sportimes team took ownership of the World Team Tennis match.

It didn’t take long for John McEnroe to answer the first question posed to him during a pre-match press conference at Newport Beach Country Club Tuesday. Who’s the greatest men’s tennis player of all time? “Roger [Federer], I guess,” he said. “I would have to go with him. [Rod] Laver is my idol. Pete [Sampras] may be the quickest, best grass court player. Roger’s the most beautiful guy I’ve ever seen, watching him.” Perhaps because of Federer, who has won a record 15 Grand Slam singles championships, McEnroe’s place among the greats is moving down.

NEWPORT BEACH — A lucky fan during halftime of Wednesday night's Newport Beach Breakers season finale bid $15,000 for an exclusive trip for two to this year's U.S. Open. Maria Sharapova doesn't need to rely on luck. She plans to be there, too — as the defending women's singles champion. Sharapova, the No. 2-ranked women's player in the world, was at sold-out Breakers Stadium on Wednesday, making her only appearance of the season for Newport Beach. And even as the Breakers lost 24-14 to finish the year 3-11, Sharapova, in her fourth year with the franchise, gave the 2,358 fans — the largest crowd of the season — a show.
