John McEnroe, himself no stranger to controversy, is commentating on this year's Wimbledon for the American television network, NBC. This is what he said on air about the Tarango incident: "I never walked off court, I never wanted to be defaulted. He has hurt himself, shot himself in the foot inexplicably. I just can't believe that he did that - and at Wimbledon of all places.
