Currently ranked 12th in the world, Emma Raducanu continues to find consistency on the Tour with another disappointing result. Play at WTA-250 Guadalajara Open 2022Emma had to retire due to a hip injury in the first round while competing with Daria Saville. The two players played the longest WTA match of the season before Emma was forced to withdraw.
In what was only her 3rd of the season, it was a bad start to the season for the young Englishwoman, who shocked the world when she won. US Open 2021 start as a qualifier. With many expecting her to continue her form and success on the Tour, life on the Tour has not been good for the 19-year-old who is currently 3-6 since she won a Grand Slam in New York.
“I still can’t fathom the truth of where she came from and where she is now and how quickly it all happened. Now those of us in the game are saying keep your horse. You’re unlikely to see her win another Grand Slam any time soon. She will need two or three years to become a regular WTA player,” former British No. 1 said Andrew’s Castle as reported by Tennisuptodate.
“It’s Just a Question of Waiting” Castle Andrew on Emma Raducanu
While Castle talks about the difficulty Emma will face in winning a Major anytime soon, he emphasizes the point that she’s only just started the Tour and has already won a Grand Slam, she’s already shown talent. and the potential she has and if she continues to work hard, she is not far away to achieve more.
“I know she won the US Open without losing a set, 10 games, qualifying and that was remarkable. It’s a testament to the talent and almost a fallacy, some madness that she went ahead and earned it. So to ask people to be patient now, I don’t think they really understand.
“So people would write her off if she was out in the first or second round of the event and that’s what she would do. That’s life when traveling, even when the world number one loses. It’s just a matter of waiting and allowing her to accumulate and gain experience,” more Castle further away.
Emma’s involvement in upcoming events is now in doubt with the teenager having her name withdrawn for 2022 Monterrey Open scheduled from February 28 to March 6. With the Indian Wells Open 2022 set to begin on March 10, Emma may have decided to take a break instead of playing in Monterrey and get ready for Indian Wells . For now, she will be playing in the California desert.
