Raducanu returns to practice – with strange change of technique
The 2021 US Open champion has struggled with a wrist injury recently after a hugely disrupted season
Emma Raducanu has been beset by physical issues since her 2021 US Open triumph. Just this year she has suffered from Covid, back problems, blisters and muscle spasms in her first full season on the WTA tour. It meant that she finished a underwhelming season with a negative record at 17-19 but now she is back on the court in preparation for 2023.
However, after Raducanu posted a clip from a training session on social media, fans were bemused – as the 20-year-old was seen hitting forehands left-handed.
The Brit has enlisted the help of Jez Green, Andy Murray’s former strength and conditioning coach, to ensure a more active and busy 2023. However, she remains without a main coach since splitting with Dmitry Tursunov – the fourth time in 18 months she has changed coach following her rapid rise to fame.
