Emma Raducanu is planning to end the season with a surprise at the WTA Finals.
The US Open Champion ranked 22nd in the world with his last two Grand Slam appearances this year. This week, he will play in his first Indian Wells match since winning New York. 1000 level events so far.
She will participate as a seed thanks to the world rankings, but is expected to move up further next month. Others will lose points remaining in their rankings from last year’s previous tournament, while Raducanu can only rise as a newcomer to the tour.
Raducanu will fly from California to Moscow for the Kremlin Cup starting October 18. The event will earn 500 ranking points to win the winner and then head to the Transylvania Open Cluj. Will bring her back to her father’s country.
Raducanu’s Expected Indian Wells Schedule

- Second round: Friday, October 8th / Saturday, October 9th
- 3rd round: October 10th (Sun) / October 11th (Mon)
- the 4th Round: Tuesday, October 12
- Quarter finals: October 13th (Wednesday) / October 14th (Thursday)

She is also registered to play the tournament in Linz, Austria in the week starting November 8th, but will skip if she qualifies for the WTA Finals.
The year-end championship was scheduled to take place in Shenzhen, China, but as the pandemic continued to influence, the tournament switched to Guadalajara, Mexico. This move seems to affect the number of players who can participate.
World No. 1 Ashleigh Barty will also lead the point race and decide if eight players will play, but will be back in Australia and will stay in Australia for the rest of the year, Naomi Osaka. The break from tennis is unlikely to end. tournament.
In the absence of these two, Raducanu would only have to move up from his current 15th place to 10th place to qualify for the WTA Finals. Her name is currently 2,282 points, but Elise Mertens in 10th place has only 2,438 points, which is a huge gap, especially on the current schedule.
In the unlikely event that both Bertie and Osaka chose to play in the final, Raducanu is still only 500 points away from 8th place. I will be in the final even a few weeks ago.

Roundabout coaching continues
Raducanu could have many different coaches to work with her during a busy month if her previous strategy works.
The 18-year-old Nigel Sears worked with her in Wimbledon before Andrew Richardson led the team to the US swing. She currently has LTA Senior Female Coach Jeremy Bates in the Indian Wells box, which is also understood to be a temporary appointment for this tournament.
