Emma Raducanu Withdraws From French Open

Emma Raducanu has withdrew from French Open qualification and will instead concentrate on training for the grass and hard court seasons. The 21-year-old was expected to fight her way through three rounds of qualifying at Roland Garros, like she memorably did to win the US Open in 2021.

However, the British tennis star surprisingly withdrew from the clay-court tournament. “It’s important for me to keep laying on the foundations and I will use the time to do a healthy block before the grass and subsequent hard-court seasons to give myself a chance to keep fit for the rest of the year,” she stated.

Raducanu started the tournament with a protected ranking of 103, however she finished three spots outside the main draw and was denied a wild card. Also read: Boris Becker discharged from bankruptcy court in England

She had an impressive start to the clay-court season, defeating French combination Caroline Garcia and Diane Parry to take Britain to the Billie Jean King Cup finals and then reaching the quarterfinals of the WTA event in Stuttgart, Germany.

Raducanu pushed Iga Swiatek in a last-eight loss before struggling against Argentine qualifier Maria Lourdes Carle in the first round of the Madrid Open last month due to weariness. Also read: Emma Raducanu suffers heavy first-round loss in Madrid
