Emma Raducanu: "It's hard to break up with Torben Beltz"

Emma Raducanu wants to continue chasing her goals. The British is trying to grow and become more effective on clay, talking about what she will be able to achieve in the next scheduled tournament (Madrid): in the press conference there was a passage on the announcement of her divorce from her coach Torben Beltz.

The English girl spoke on the media day of the Iberian tournament: "I am enjoying my stay in Madrid. I have not yet gone out, but I have trained well and the place is really fantastic. I can not wait to see what happens in the next days.

Conditions are very weather dependent and vary: on the first day I noticed the court very fast, with high speed tennis, as it was warm and the air was dry, but then it got heavier and heavier (in cloudy weather). I think I did really well to be my first week on clay at the whole circuit, I did a great job, I'm happy.

Playing two Fed Cup games allowed me to get used to the clay, it was a very nice step," she commented.

On the separation: "Torben is a great guy, I really enjoyed the time I spent with him, both on and off the pitch.

He's one of the nicest people I've ever worked with. It was hard to break up with someone like him, I feel that the training I am receiving right now makes me feel comfortable, with a lot of confidence in what I am doing and how I am doing it.

The ideal situation is that now I am happy as I am: after I would like to put more emphasis in the battle, it is an important thing because I spend more time on tour, I have to get used to the ball speed of the best players.

Against Swiatek I tried to get used to his ball speed in the first few games, that's why I had such a slow start, so I'd love to have that kind of training on a daily basis. As I am learning what I need in the Tour," she added.
