I barely remember the news of Mac intending to return. And to do it in the tournament were he went skitzo so many years ago is hilarious. Gotta love Johnny Mac!

Twenty-two years after he launched one of the biggest outbursts of his stormy career, John McEnroe made a triumphant return to the Stockholm Open.

The 47-year-old American teamed up with home favorite Jonas Bjorkman in front of a sellout crowd to beat Andreas Vinciguerra and Johan Landsberg 6-3 6-2 in a first-round doubles match on Thursday.

"It brings back nice memories," said McEnroe who was watched by Bjorn Borg, his great rival of the 1970s and 1980s.

"It's going to get harder but it's nice to get a chance again to play with Jonas. Bjorn was there and so was Stefan (Edberg) and some of the other players came in which added to the excitement," he told reporters.

Bjorkman and McEnroe, who won the San Jose doubles title in February, outclassed their opponents with classic serve and volley tactics.
