In case you missed it, Never Have I Ever, a series co-designed by The Office star Mindy Kaling and recently released on Netflix. And as it turns out, tennis legend John McEnroe plays a central role in the show as the narrator, the voice that can be heard in Devi's head. John McEnroe is of course a former tennis professional and champion and talk show host who may be best known for occasional tantrums during his career.

Despite the whole drama, McEnroe holds seven single Grand Slam titles and nine doubles. He was inducted into the Tennis Hall of Fame in 1999 and was named Player of the Year for the Association of Tennis Professionals in 1981, 1983 and 1984.
It may seem strange that McEnroe is telling the show.  Though it may seem confusing why a tennis legend could tell a sitcom about teenagers in high school, co-creator Mindy Kaling explained her reasons for the casting. "We had the idea that there was a certain type of father with an immigrant background and that there was an American icon that he clings to. And for my father it was Tom Brady," said Kaling. "We just thought it was great if the way an Indian father tried to relate to his Indian-American daughter went through the lens of that American he trusted and thought was great. "

(You have to watch the show to see what he's talking about.)
McEnroe would likely return for another season.
When the show is recorded for a second season, McEnroe has already expressed his interest in a desire to tell again. "I know Mindy is proud of it and people respond," he told EW. "I get people who I haven't heard from in years and who say," I heard you on Never Have I Ever which was nice. "
