Taylor Fritz's girlfriend issues statement on 'feud' with Alexander Zverev at Wimbledon


Taylor Fritz’s girlfriend, Morgan Riddle, has released a statement after she deleted her social media posts at Wimbledon following her partner’s victory over Alexander Zverev.

American star Fritz came from two sets down to reach the quarter-finals at SW19 for the second time in his career, before Zverev held his conqueror close to the net and later hit out at members of Fritz’s box.

He accused those close to Fritz, though not his coaching staff, of being “over the top” in the fifth set while knowing that Zverev had been carrying an injury and was wearing heavy strapping on his knee.

Riddle released a statement on Instagram which read: “Regarding my stories yesterday… I took them down as soon as I realised the misunderstanding and how blown out of proportion they had become by the media.

“They were not about anything that’s happened off the tennis court & there’s no bad blood between anyone. Super proud of t for the match yesterday, thank you to the crowd for the support & looking forward to tomorrow.”
