John McEnroe showed tennis fans in San Jose that he still has the
deft touch that helped him win seven Grand Slam singles titles and
10 major doubles titles from 1977-92. McEnroe teamed with young
American Jack Sock to beat Gael Monfils (GAH’-ehl mohn-FEES’) and
Steve Johnson 6-4, 6-4 in a lighthearted exhibition match on the
