Commenting on the match, the former tennis pro said that although he felt “bad” for the sportswoman, the game had become “too much” for her to handle.
The British wildcard retired from the game on “medical grounds” after losing the first set and was 3-0 down when she sought medical attention.
Addressing the incident, the American sportsman said: “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.”
Last month Naomi Osaka announced that she would not be competing in Wimbledon this year, detailing “long bouts of depression” and “huge waves of anxiety” as the reason for her missing the championships.
