McEnroe said in June it appeared "it just got a little too much" for Raducanu in June after she withdrew from Wimbledon.
Former tennis star and commentator John McEnroe is standing behind controversial comments about Emma Raducanu after the U.S. Open champion's withdrawal from Wimbledon in June.

"I feel bad for Emma, obviously. It appears it just got a little bit too much, as is understandable, particularly with what we've been talking about this over the last six weeks with Osaka not even here," McEnroe said in June referring to Naomi Oskaka's widely publicized break to address mental health concerns.

"How much can players handle? It makes you look at the guys that have been around and the girls for so long – how well they can handle it," he continued, according to The Guardian. "Hopefully she'll learn from this experience."
