Tennis legend John McEnroe, known for his volleying game and his penchant for yelling at referees, is scouting out New York pads.

The former world number 1 checked out a pad at the Ralph Walker Tribeca at 100 Barclay Street, along with his wife and singer Patty Smyth.

The 4,000-square-foot, four-bedroom pad features a gym, a pool and a media room, and has a 852-square-foot terrace. Its asking price is $12 million, the New York Post reported.

The Ralph Walker Tribeca, designed – surprise, surprise – by Ralph Walker, was completed in 1930. The 943,000-square-foot, 32-story building is home to 161 condo units, along with office space on the lower floors. The units were built over the last couple years by Ben Shaoul’s Magnum Real Estate Group, which purchased the top floors of the building for $274 million in 2013. The company recently bought the retail portion of the building as well, paying $40 million.

McEnroe and Smyth sold their apartment at the Emery Roth-designed Berseford, at 211 Central Park West, in 2013. They’ve reportedly been checking out luxury units all over town.

The couple “have been looking at every major apartment downtown that is more than $12 million,” a broker told the Post. “And they are working with everyone.” [NYP]Ariel Stulberg
