Three-time Wimbledon winner John McEnroe was sentenced to 30 months in prison in April for concealing assets and loans totalling $3.1 million and 2.5 million pounds in order to avoid paying his debts.
The previous holder of the number one spot in the world lost their financial footing in June of 2017.
According to a story in The Guardian, the tennis champion will be deported since he is a foreign national who does not have British citizenship and received a sentence of incarceration that was more than 12 months.
