Emma Raducanu, champion at Flushing Meadows in 2021, commented on her current situation on a physical level, which also led to her disappointing 2022. Emma has decided to interrupt her season and return in 2023, a choice that many have not appreciated, while others agreed.
She said: "I have tried to do everything possible to be ready, since my last tournament I have been working daily on physical training and rehabilitation. I have faith in my teammates and hope to be able to play this event next year."
Emma Raducanu's goal now can only be to recharge her energies with tranquility and without pressure, already thinking about the first appointments of the next year on the tour. In Australia the British will have to try to get there in the best way to try to be among the protagonists.
Emma Raducanu returns in 2023: right choice?
Emma, after having unexpectedly won the US Open title in 2021 at the age of just 18 year-old, could not withstand the pressure of the very high expectations that many have placed in her.
While on the one hand he continued his long path of growth from different points of view, the current number 73 in the world had to face the many physical problems during the whole of 2022 and the coach case, many (and definitely too many) changed in such a short time.
The girl born in 2002 recently announced that she has effectively concluded her 2022 on the playing fields, after a painful but inevitable decision. In fact, the 19-year-old is not in the best conditions to compete in the Billie Jean King Cup to defend the colors of the country and play with her companions.
"It is so sad not to be part of this fantastic team in the next event. I am really sorry not to see you all in Glasgow, I was looking forward to playing on the home surface in front of you. I will support my girls and be with the team in spirit," Raducanu commented through a message that appeared on his social media profiles.
