Emma Raducanu has put everything on her path so far.
Aside from the stress of overcoming her during the fourth round of Wimbledon’s match against Ajla Tomljanovich and withdrawing her due to dyspnea, the 18-year-old she enjoyed the amazing first summer of professional tennis. I did.
All of the US Open champions’ moves have been newsworthy, including a return flight to Britain after her victory in New York, how to spend £ 1.7 million on prize money, and a move in the next courtroom.
First, she broke up with coach Andrew Richardson. Andrew Richardson was a temporary appointment, but he was still happy to stay. After that, he revealed that the rest of the year’s schedule was packed.

Raducanu’s next opponent
The Indian Wells draw on Monday night confirmed that Raducanu would be in the first round of the world rankings bye-bye. In other words, the opponent in the second round is definitely unknown until the second half of the week. But she knows it will be either Maria Camila Osorio Serrano or Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
Osorioserano, like Raducanu, won his first senior singles title at the age of 19 earlier this year, making a big breakthrough at Wimbledon and knocking out 32-seeded Ekaterina Alexandrova, like a rising star in women’s tennis. It is a thing.
Even before running on the SW19 turf, she ranked in the Top 100 for the first time in history, winning Copa Colsanitas at her home in Colombia, and then advancing to the semifinals of the Charleston and Belgrade tournaments. ..
She became the US Open Junior Champion in 2019 and has great expectations for her in Colombia.
Raducanu’s other potential enemy, Sasnovich, is a more advanced experience, but has a slightly lower pedigree. The daughter of two professional athletes, her mother is a basketball player and her father is a tennis and hockey player, she has reached 30th place in the world, but with the exception of Wimbledon’s participation in the fourth round, there are no noticeable results. was. She is still in the top 100. She hasn’t won the WTA title yet, and it would be surprising if it was she, not Serrano, who reached the second round.
