Emma Raducanu announced on Wednesday that she would miss the French Open as well as Wimbledon while recovering from a hand and lower leg procedure.
Emma Raducanu, the British number 1, announced Wednesday that she would be missing the French Open and Wimbledon as she recovers from surgery on her hands and ankles.
The 2021 US Open Champion has been plagued by injuries in recent months. In April, he was forced to miss the Madrid Open because of a hand injury.
On her virtual entertainment accounts, the 20-year old, who is now ranked 85th in the world rankings, posted a photo of herself lying on a bed at an emergency clinic with her right arm dressed.
“Unfortunately, that’s not enough. “Unfortunately, it’s not enough.” I am undergoing minor surgery to correct both hands.
Even though I tried to minimize the issue, I still regret missing the summer events. I would like to thank my supporters who have stood by me throughout everything.
Raducanu’s fitness and form have been a problem ever since she won the US Open in 2021, as a qualifier at 18 years old. She claimed that she pulled out of the Madrid Open due to an injury in her right hand.
If she withdraws from Madrid, she is likely to drop out of top 100 of the WTA rankings. This will be the first time she has dropped out since her miraculous return in New York.
Coco Gauff beat her in the Australian Open second round in straight sets. She was also eliminated in the first rounds of Stuttgart and Miami.
“I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend the Late Spring event. I apologize for my inability to keep up with the schedule, but I thank you all who stuck by me, even though they didn’t.
