Three-time Grand Slam champion Andy Murray knows a thing or two about dealing with injuries and he has made himself available for a chat if Emma Raducanu needs someone for an advice. Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, has had two major hip surgeries since 2017.
Raducanu, who captured her maiden Grand Slam title at the US Open, hasn't had an ideal start to the season but injuries have impacted her performance. Raducanu started her year in Australia, where she picked up a first round exit in Sydney and was beaten in the Australian Open second round after being hampered by blisters.
This week, Raducanu retired her Guadalajara first round match due to a hip injury. “I don’t think that I’m necessarily the right person to be giving advice on those things,” Murray said, per Tennis365.
“She has her team that she’s working with, that she will trust to help her through those moments. “Yeah, if she wanted to know my advice, I’m sure she would message or speak to me and contact me, and I’d be more than happy to chat, but I’m not just going to dish out advice on that”.
Raducanu forced to retire in Guadalajara
Daria Saville was 5-7 7-6 (4) 4-3 up when Raducanu retired their Guadalajara first round match due to a hip injury. "This is probably the first match in a long time when I felt like I was being myself,” Saville said after the victory.
“I was being feisty Dasha. I just want to keep on working and keep on going here." Even though it wasn't finished, it was the longest WTA match of the season as Raducanu retired after three hours and 36 minutes of play.
Also, Raducanu pulled out of next week's WTA event in Monterrey. “I just wanted to say that I’m very sorry that I won’t be able to play for you in Monterrey," Raducanu announced. “I was having an amazing time, but I got hurt in my last match and that means I can’t play”.
