Emma Raducanu admits that she «wouldn’t trade the US Open title for the world» noting that she is ready for all the adversity and challenges that come her way. At the 2021 US Open, Raducanu wrote tennis history when she became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam.
But since then, Raducanu hasn’t won a title and has been plagued with injuries and setbacks many times. «Sometimes you wonder, like, how is this possible? But then very quickly, I think you make your own luck. It works both ways.
I also won the US Open. Sometimes I have to put up with bad luck because good fortune has also touched me. I wouldn’t trade that title for the world. I am prepared to take what is necessary, knowing that I have it in the bank,» Raducanu said, according to eurosport.
Raducanu optimistic about the work he is doing with his team
At the end of 2022, coach Dmitry Tursunov decided to leave Raducanu. After the 2022 season ended, Raducanu added Sebastian Sachs on a trial basis. In the past, Sachs has worked with Belinda Bencic and the German Tennis Federation.
Raducanu is happy with what Sachs is bringing to the table and he is his full-time coach. «I feel good with the way I’m working with my team, not feeling overly pleased or depressed. I’m just walking away. I feel very good about how things are going,» Raducanu said.
Meanwhile, Raducanu returned to action for the first time since the Australian Open. After beating Danka Kovinic in the first round at Indian Wells, Raducanu also beat Magda Linette 7-6(3) 6-2 in the second round. During the match, Raducanu called a physio.
After the match, Raducanu did not reveal what exactly he needed a physio for. «Yeah, I got some treatment in the middle. It’s the same. It’s manageable. I can still win games at this level. Manage it. Yeah, as far as what it is, I’m not going to go into that,» Raducanu said. .
