John McEnroe has ended his coaching partnership with Canada’s Milos Raonic ahead of the start of the US Open.
McEnroe joined Raonic’s team as a coaching consultant for this summer’s grass-court season but came under scrutiny commentate on his player’s matches at Wimbledon.
Raonic, whose primary coaches are Carlos Moya and Riccardo Piatti, reached his first grand slam final at SW19 with the American by his side, before losing to Andy Murray.
But McEnroe has said his media commitments with ESPN mean he and Raonic have decided to part ways.
“It ended up becoming an issue at Wimbledon,” McEnroe said.
“He’s got a great team around him. I think it’s best and easiest at this point. This week I was with him, but having thought about it, and for Milos’s sake, for ESPN and my sake, I think it’s best that we stop right now doing what we’re doing.
