British new hope Emma Raducanu ended her partnership with coach Andrew Richardson after the US Open 2021 title win. Afterwards, the 18-year-old exited from Indian Wells with a shocking first-round loss against Aliaksandra Sasnovich. She now faces Polona Hercog in the opening encounter at the Transylvania Open 2021. However, she is optimistic about finding a new coach before the Australian Open 2022.
“I don’t think it’s great to be dependent. You need to coach yourself. It’s something I’m learning,” Raducanu said in a recent interview.
“I think having a coach is great. But once again you are on your own on the court. Part of the experience I am having is being able to learn to coach myself.”
“Sometimes it won’t always work, like in Indian Wells, but in the long term if I keep doing that then I will be better in the situations in the future.”
“I had a couple of trials this last week. I had a trial with Esteban. But I also had trials with others. I am feeling optimistic about trying to have something in place for the off-season and the Australian Open.”
We hope that Emma Raducanu will have a coach as soon as possible and to add more grand slam stones in her crown.
