Raducanu ‘Unlikely’ to Compete at Wimbledon 2022

Raducanu ‘Unlikely’ to Compete at Wimbledon 2022

Posted by Lydia Ray | 8 June 2022 | Tennis Talk

A freak injury has forced Emma Raducanu out of the Nottingham Open. Raducanu, the most recent winner of the US Open has been struggling with numerous injuries and has had to pull out of three tournaments since September 2021. It is unknown whether or not Raducanu will be playing in the 2022 Wimbledon Championships.

Emma Raducanu required medical timeout in the early stages of the match at the Nottingham Open against Victorija Golubic after a problem with her left side. She had treatment and took painkillers but had to pull out in the first set after just 33 minutes of playing.

Speaking after the match, Raducanu discussed whether she would be fit for Wimbledon.

“I have no idea [about Wimbledon]. It could have just seized up and gone into spasm and then it is really bad for a few days. I think I pulled something, I am not really sure what exactly happened.”

The Nottingham Open was her first match in the UK since her run to the fourth round at Wimbledon last year.

The 19-year-old has had several injury problems this year as she struggles with the physical demands of life on the WTA Tour.

In January, a blister on her finger lead to defeat at the Australian Open and the following month, she retired from a first-round match in Mexico and withdrew from a WTA event with a leg injury.

Why is Raducanu struggling so much?
– She is very new to the rigours of top-level tennis on the WTA tour. There will always be growing pains.
– Raducanu’s unconventional coaching set up. Working without a full-time coach means she has no one guiding leader to signal when to stop pushing herself too hard.
– She has been injury-prone for many years. In her early teens, she took regular breaks from competitive action in the juniors
