Fans on social media felt more sorry for themselves than for five-set loser Fritz at the thought of Morgan’s Wimbledon exit.

Nadal defied injury to fight back from 2-1 down in sets and earn a semi-final with Nick Kyrgios via a 10-4 fifth-set tie-break triumph.

But as Fritz departed the tournament and Morgan exited the stands, one fan summed up the mood on Twitter.

He posted: “Nadal is a legend, but am I the only one that was rooting for Fritz so they would show more shots of Morgan Riddle on the broadcasts?”

And another claimed: “They showed David Beckham 4 times and Morgan Riddle 87 times.”

Yet one more noted: ⁦”@Wimbledon⁩ have cut to Taylor Fritz’s box A LOT.

TikTok star Morgan, 24, has campaigned to make ‘tennis cool’.

But she began to sweat on a sultry Centre Court as Nadal overcame a medical time-out to brilliantly grind out victory by 3-6 7-5 3-6 7-5 7-6.

Nonetheless, fans have noted her supportive presence throughout the tournament as American 11th seed Fritz, also 24, served up his best-ever Wimbledon run.
