Serena Williams’s US meltdown was handled badly all round, says McEnroe

‘She was wrong and so was the umpire,’ he adds

Serena Williams has “nothing to apologise for” after her meltdown at the US Open, according to John McEnroe.

The man who probably had more than most to be sorry about during a stormy career reckons his compatriot was at fault for the way she verbally abused Carlos Ramos in the final at Flushing Meadows in September but “so was the umpire”.

Speaking at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Thursday before what he says will be his last appearance at the annual Champions Tennis tournament, McEnroe said Williams’s emotions probably got to her.

He did not, however, think the incident, which cost her the title, would unsettle her at the Australian Open, where she will return for the first time since winning her 23rd major there two years ago while seven weeks pregnant.
