ESPN tennis commentator and former men’s singles player Patrick McEnroe has tested positive for the coronavirus, he said in a video posted to Twitter on Tuesday.
“The good news is I feel fine. My symptoms have passed,” the 53-year-old said. “I feel 100 percent.”
McEnroe, who won a singles title and 15 doubles championships in his career, said he felt mild symptoms roughly 10 or 11 days ago and went to a drive-thru testing center in New York. He received the positive test result Tuesday, he said.

“We’ve been on full quarantine, our entire house now, for well over two weeks,” he said in the video. “I encourage everyone to do the same. Let’s get this thing. Let’s nail this thing. I’m an example of someone who has been able to fight through it. I’m doing absolutely fine. Thoughts and prayers to people who are struggling with this.”
McEnroe is the younger brother of four-time US Open winner John McEnroe, who also calls matches for ESPN. The two are sometimes paired together during the US Open.
