Raducanu today is 168 of the world and is on the board with a wild card. On the eve of the tournament, Raducanu said she was "happy to be back, I missed this tournament so much". " I am very grateful to have the opportunity and the wild card to compete here".

Raducanu, plagued by career injuries, came to Wimbledon after a semi-final in Nottingham and the quarterfinals in Eastbourne.

Emma Raducanu is ready: "I haven’t been injured lately. I have a lot of confidence in my body. I’ve been able to play three high-level games in the last week and I’ve been physically unharmed. I think I’m in great shape. Last year I worked a lot at the end of the season to get back healthy and without hassle, and it’s a job I continued this year, I feel very good physically, no doubt my preparation for Wimbledon is working.

I found a great balance between the amount of games I play and being physically fresh. The Eastbourne week helped me play high-level games, get a great win in the second round and gain a lot of confidence.

When you exaggerate it’s very easy to get injured again. It’s something I’ve learned". The debut against Alexandrova: "Obviously it will be difficult. I think it has fantastic shots. On this surface it is very dangerous.

I expect a very difficult match". And she is cautious about expectations: "If I can get through the first round, I’ll be over the moon".

Emma Raducanu is the most anticipated local player at Wimbledon. The Briton is showing signs of improvement and her level is very good, at least for this turf tour. Raducanu comes back from afar and from several injuries, a situation that has been difficult over the past two years, a situation that many players are experiencing, such as her idol Andy Murray, whom she admires immensely: "When you approach a tournament like Wimbledon, you know you’re going to push your body to its limits, especially in terms of recovery.”
