After the success in the US Open 2021, things did not go as expected for Emma Raducanu. The pressure of being the new champion of the American Open worked against her and, a prompt dismissal in the first round of Indian Wells, changed the British plans.
After the list has been confirmed for the Moscow WTA 250A day later, the 18-year-old decided to step aside from the contest in order to get some rest.
Everything is planned for him to return to the circuit in the tournament of Cluj-Napoca in Romania (a 250 category WTA), the country where her father was born. But given the uncertainty of his future, nothing is assured.
It should be remembered that he is adapting to his new coach, Jeremy Bates, with whom he was barely a single match: That fateful defeat in his Indian Wells debut against Aliaksandra Sasnovich by 6-2 and 6-4.
