Emma Raducanu says she showed positive Intent and hunger at BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells

Emma Raducanu says she showed positive Intent and hunger at BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells

Emma Raducanu won two matches before eventually losing to Aryna Sabalenka. She has called her streak a “success” as her run came to an end in the third round of Indian Wells. Emma won consecutive matches for the first time this year.

Emma was beaten in straight sets by world No 2 Aryna Sabalenka as the former US Open champion went down fighting on Tuesday. She won back-to-back matches for the first time since her run to the last 16 of the same tournament previous year.

Raducanu has been working with Nick Cavaday, her childhood coach, following her return from an eight-month absence after surgery on ankle and both wrists.

It was a good success, I would say,” Raducanu said of her week. “I think I have handled myself a lot better on the match court. I was a lot more positive and hungry to play, and that showed I think in the tennis that I did play.”

Ranked 250th in the world, the 21-year-old, is scheduled to return to action at the Miami Open next week. She has been awarded a wildcard to compete in the 1000 combined tournament.

I actually think that’s the more difficult thing for Emma in her career because she’s got the level of tennis so if she can overcome the injuries, she’s drawn a line in the sand so she can finally train properly but it’s actually dealing with the rest of the stuff that comes with it,” said Broady, former world No 76 .

You don’t know how to deal with it until you live it so it’s just a learning curve for Emma and everything is still so, so new so she’s cut a lot of the team she’s had around her.”

In fact she was only with her coach at Indian Wells, you see the top players now with physio and fitness, the coach and the phycologist, and Emma was just with her coach Nick Cavaday so she’s really keeping it as small as possible and only hiring people that she knows and trusts.”

Because she’s playing these higher-level events she’s going to be drawing the top players quite early on and although she hasn’t won back-to-back matches until this week she’s coming up[ against the top players. It’s a great test for her and a test at some point she’s going to have to pass because if she continues to play at the highest level events she’s going to keep playing the top players.”
