Taylor Fritz’s girlfriend Morgan Riddle revealed that the World No. 5 almost ended up going to the hospital following his match against Tommy Paul in the semifinals of the Mexican Open.

Fritz’s journey at the ATP 500 event in Acapulco came to an end after he lost 3-6, 7-6(2), 6-7(2), to Paul in what was the longest-ever match in the tournament’s history. The match was an intense physical affair for him, considering the fact that he was cramping and at one point, even vomited on court.

Taylor Fritz’s girlfriend Morgan Riddle took to social media to reveal some details about his health after the match. The social media influencer claimed that they were with the tournament doctors until 4 am and that the World No. 5 had severe dehydration along with chills and full body cramping. She claimed that Taylor Fritz almost ended up going to the hospital.

Riddle said that her boyfriend was too stubborn to default and pushed himself too hard despite the humid conditions in Acapulco.

“After he got sick on court last night, we were up until 4 am with the tournament doctors. He couldn’t keep any food down, chills, severe dehydration, full body cramping & almost had to go to the hospital. So scary. He is too stubborn to default and pushed himself too hard & these high humidity tournaments are no joke,” Riddle said.

Riddle also claimed that while this week ended on a sad note, she was proud of how the past few weeks had gone and was excited to get to Indian Wells.

“Sad way to end the week but so proud of the last few weeks and excited to get to IW,” Riddle said.
