Wimbledon LIVE: Novak Djokovic blows up at reporter as Sue Barker hints at BBC return | Tennis | Sport


Dan Evans has scolded Emma Raducanu for failing to fulfil her commitment to play mixed doubles with Andy Murray at Wimbledon.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Evans wrote: “It’s just unfortunate how it played out, with Emma pulling out a few hours before their match because she had a sore wrist.

“Of course the singles is a player’s priority. The prize money on offer is substantially more and that will always be Emma’s main focus.

“But once you agree to play doubles with someone, especially in a special situation like this, then you should be fully committed to it.

“I recently played doubles with Andy at Roland-Garros and he waited around all week to play with me, having been knocked out in the singles.

“I can’t blame Emma for pulling out but there’s a lesson in there about not committing unless you’re 100 per cent on board.”
