Ivanisevic chokes back the tears after his epic win
Former champion John McEnroe looks back at Wimbledon 2001

It has been the best Championship I have been involved in, both as a player and a commentator.

I have really enjoyed it.

I'm a players' guy and know how tough it is out there. It is also a great job.

Some people have been commenting that I've accused Goran Ivanisevic of only having one shot - his serve.

I deny saying that.

Oustanding athlete

I don't think it's earth shattering news that his serve is his biggest weapon.

But it's a great ending to a wonderful story.

I like guys who reach out more and show their personality.

Goran showed us his two Gorans, the good and the bad, and I like the fact he can be self deprecating.

He got everyone on his side and the only person they wanted him to lose to was Tim Henman.

When he beat Henman and then won the Championship, everyone was happy.

Goran showed a lot of ability in other shots in the final.

He is an outstanding athlete for such a tall man.
