"I don't know why she changed coaches" says McEnroe calling out Raducanu again

John McEnroe has had questionable comments on Emma Raducanu before and he added another one despite being adamant that he is pulling for her.

McEnroe was left stunned by Raducanu's triumph at the US Open and he was hardly the only one. The British player produced a stunning effort to claim the title and speaking on the Brit recently, McEnroe said:

"Expectations have now been ramped up in an unbelievable way. It's going to take some time to see how she handles it, I'm sure at times it's overwhelming. It was overwhelming for her at Wimbledon and then she had this magical run (at the US Open). I don't know why she then decided to change coaches... you would think if a coach took her to the US Open Championship that you wouldn't say that I need a new coach."

It's not the first time McEnroe questioned some of the decisions Raducanu made before but he insisted that he is pulling for her fully:

"She seems like a sweet girl, she's got game, charisma, she's got everything! I'm pulling for her, it's not going to be easy, I'm sure she's trying to figure it all out right now."

He did issue a warning one that echoes sentiments shared by former pros as well about focusing too much on off-court stuff:

"But she should be careful with that because obviously she has opportunities to do that and you don’t just go 'I’m going to do everything'. Of course not. Their management team would be foolish to suggest that. Take it what one step at a time. Remember why you’re getting these opportunities because you’re a great tennis player and you won the US Open."
