Emma Raducanu is putting up big work and effort to ensure she is soon ready for a comeback as the Briton took to Instagram to reveal she is having morning and afternoon gym sessions. In an Instagram Story posted on Wednesday, Raducanu shared a gym selfie from the morning.

The post also revealed that Raducanu was preparing for an afternoon session in the gym. Raducanu, who underwent multiple surgeries in May, is regularly posting about her comeback process. Before the surgeries, Raducanu would often hear that she wasn't practicing or working out in the gym hard enough.

Judging by her latest posts, it is evident that 20-year-old Raducanu is determined to get her body right ahead of the 2024 season.

Raducanu trains hard, which is a message for her doubters

Before undergoing multiple surgeries, Raducanu was one of the most criticized and scrutinized players in tennis.

Even after the surgeries, Raducanu has still received certain criticism. "The fact they are still talking about me even though I'm not at these events is just a compliment. Someone told me 'worry when they are not talking about you,'" Raducanu told BBC London last month.

Throughout last year and at the start of this year, Raducanu would often hear that she became more committed to sponsorship and endorsement deals after her US Open win. The claims that tennis became secondary for Raducanu were strongly dismissed by her agent Max Eisenbud, who had a great explanation and message for her critics.

"She could be doing deals and deals and deals. They left millions and millions on the table. They strategically took the best brands with the most limited time, who understood it would be a rocky road. None of her sponsors have ever rung up and said ‘oh my god, I can’t believe she’s not winning’.

No one. I know people want to say ‘oh she’s got the pressure’. The pressure she has is she won a great tournament and she wants that feeling again and wants to keep winning. I don’t think she’s waking up and thinking ‘HSBC is mad’.

Sponsors are supportive through injury. I know people want the narrative that the ‘big, bad IMG’ are bringing in all this money. We are a pretty well-established company and we’re not living and dying on a commission for Emma Raducanu," Eisenbud said on The Tennis Podcast in July.
