McCurdy eventually bowed out in the elite16s to No.16th seed American Tim Mayotte. Other tennis greats Stefan Edberg, Mats Wilander, Guillermo Vilas, and Wojtek Fibak failed to advance past the third round. The 1983 tournament was won by John McEnroe.defeating Chris Lewis of New Zealand.

 

In doubles competition, Macca reached the third round of the Australian Open in 1982, with countryman partner and former Oklahoma State University star Peter Johnston, whom he would pair with at four Grand Slam events. They were finalists at Melbourne's Black and Decker ATP Indoor Championships in 1984.

 

A dual athlete, McCurdy also took time off periodically to be included in Reserves Level for the North Melbourne Football Club. With his own personal development playing experience together with his vast coaching knowledge the new Tennis World Academy will surely give a big boost to the young crop of Aussie talent development.
