HARD TO SWALLOW

Ivan Lendl, who retired from tennis this week, was not considered outspoken, but he once offered a crisp return volley to a remark by John McEnroe.

McEnroe, informed that the Czech-born Lendl was interested in joining the American Davis Cup team, said he "found that hard to swallow." Said Lendl: "I find it hard to believe that someone with his mouth has trouble swallowing anything."
