John McEnroe stands by controversial Emma Raducanu comments after stunning US Open victory
The Metro says John McEnroe has once again defended the comments he made about Emma Raducanu’s mental strength following her withdrawal from Wimbledon despite the teenager going on to win the US Open.
The 18-year-old from Bromley became the first qualifier ever to win a Slam after seeing off Leylah Fernandez at the Arthur Ashe Stadium on Saturday, not dropping a single set over the course of her 10 matches and three weeks in New York.
Raducanu had also impressed at Wimbledon two months earlier, making the fourth round, though the British wildcard withdrew from her match with Ajla Tomljanovic after struggling to catch her breath and feeling dizzy.
