Raducanu Withdraws From Kremlin Cup

October 18, 2021 by

US Open champion Emma Raducanu appears to be holding out for a coach. The youngster announced this week that she won’t be competing in this month’s Kremlin Cup in Russia, after all.

While the British star cited a sudden change in tournament schedule as the official reason for her withdrawal, many are left speculating about the real reason, and especially so since she’s not played again after her early exit from Indian Wells.

Her second-round defeat at the BNP Paribas Open marked her first appearance since her fairy-tale win in New York. Up until very recently, Raducanu breathed no word about the possibility of not competing in Russia between 18 and 24 October. The young Brit added that while she wouldn’t be playing in the event this year, she was greatly looking forward to playing in front of Russian fans next year.

Raducanu has emerged a seemingly hesitant figure since her defeat at Indian Wells, but said she’s looking forward to making her return to the WTA tour within the next couple of weeks. She did however add that she feels its important to cut herself some slack after her incredible run at Flushing Meadows and that she’s not yet used to the level of the pressure on her to perform now that she’s won her first Grand Slam title.

Raducanu has appeared desperate in her search for a new coach. After parting ways with Andrew Richardson, the man who helped her to a phenomenal Grand Slam title, she announced she now required the services of someone more experienced.
