McEnroe says he won't work with Raonic during US Open

NEW YORK (AP) John McEnroe says he won't work with Milos Raonic during the U.S. Open ''for Milos' sake, for ESPN and my sake.''

McEnroe was brought on as a coaching consultant to the Canadian before Wimbledon, where he also serves as a TV commentator. He did not call any of Raonic's matches for ESPN until the final, when he was asked to provide insight into his player instead of the typical analysis.

ESPN executive Jamie Reynolds had said before the U.S. Open that he was still comfortable with that arrangement as long as the network was transparent about the relationships. But McEnroe said on a conference call Friday that ''it's best that we stop right now doing what we're doing'' and ''it will just make life easier for everyone.''
