Brandon Holt expressed his excitement as he watched his mother, Tracy Austin, take to the tennis court with none other than the legendary John McEnroe.
Austin was a remarkable tennis player during her time and still holds the record for being the youngest women’s singles champion in the history of the US Open. The former World No. 1 ended her career with two Grand Slam titles to her name — both of them coming at the US Open in 1979 and 1981.
John McEnroe, meanwhile, is widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time. He was notorious for getting into arguments with umpires and throwing tantrums on the court, earning him the nickname ‘Superbrat.’
Despite his controversial behavior, McEnroe’s talent on the court cannot be denied. He won seven Grand Slam singles titles and nine Grand Slam men’s doubles titles over the course of an illustrious career, cementing his place in tennis history.
Recently, Tracy Austin and John McEnroe engaged in a game of tennis at the prestigious Jack Kramer Club in California. At the conclusion of the match, both of them embraced near the net. Brandon Holt, Austin’s son, took to his social media to share a video of the two legends in action.
“Mom grinding w John McEnroe, @tracyaustin_ @jackkramerclubofficial,” Holt wrote on his Instagram story.
