Piers Morgan told Emma Raducanu to ‘toughen up’ and Dan Walker’s comeback was a straight sets burn

As you might already have seen elsewhere, John McEnroe has come under fire for comments he made on the BBC about young British tennis star Emma Raducanu’s withdrawal from Wimbledon on Monday night.

McEnroe said the 18-year-old, who retired from her fourth round match with breathing problems, found playing in the last 16 of Wimbledon “a little too much”.

Lots of people took issue with three times Wimbledon champion, saying his comments were ‘harsh’ and ‘unfair’.

But not entirely unpredictably, one person giving McEnroe his full backing was Piers Morgan.

Which we only mention because his long time rival and erstwhile breakfast nemesis Dan Walker had the perfect response.

Straight sets victory to Walker.

It’s not the first time Walker’s owned Morgan on Twitter, obviously, and it took us back to what the BBC Breakfast presenter had to say after Morgan’s infamous walkout over his Meghan Markle comments.

And also this, after Morgan’s GMB exit.
