After winning her first major at the 2021 US Open at just 18 years and 10 months old, the British tennis player Emma Raducanu leapt into the headlines as one of the most crystalline talents on the WTA circuit. She did it by breaking various records such as that of the first tennis player ever to succeed in the feat starting from qualifying, as the youngest player to win a Major since Marija Sharapova's triumph at Wimbledon 2004 and the first British female tennis player to establish herself in a Grand Slam after Virginia Wade in 1977.
However, pressure, some disappointing results and injuries, forced her to have surgery on both hands and on her left ankle, limited the growth of the British tennis player, who since that success has no longer been able to express herself at high levels, falling to 136th position in the WTA ranking.
In recent days, however, Raducanu has announced with a post on Instagram that the moment of her return to her WTA Tour is approaching. Emma shared a video of her training in the gym on social media. In the video, Raducanu is seen doing squats and other exercises, as well as using red light therapy, which aids muscle recovery and reduces inflammation.
She wrote on the Instagram post:"Hi! First few steps but nice to be reintroduced!" The British beauty not only wants to walk the catwalk at the US Open 2023: she will have ambitions in New York. The most important of which will undoubtedly be to understand how her wrists will be after three surgeries in an event where they will be under pressure.
From there, as everyone hopes, it will only be a starting point. Indeed, of re-starting.
Emma in Greece
Before returning to training, Raducanu spent a holiday in Greece with Carlo Agostinelli, posting some photographs of their trip.
The 20-year-old Briton was recently invited to participate in the MGM Macau Tennis Masters, a two-day indoor hard-court mixed exhibition tournament in December. The event is co-organized by the IMG sports group. In addition to Raducanu and Yibing Wu, several high-level players have confirmed their presence at the inaugural edition of the Macau Tennis Masters, which will be held at the Macao East Asian Games Dome.
The Toronto-born tennis player, after missing two grand Slams due to injury (The Roland Garros and Wimbledon), has not yet confirmed her presence at the US Open, which she won in 2021, but the chances of seeing her on the court seem to be concretely increasing day by day.
