Emma Raducanu Has to Pull off Mighty US Open Run as Australian Open Scenario Revealed for Comeback

0

The tennis fans, besides missing Rafael Nadal on the courts, have also been deprived of the action that several other players contributed to. Being out of the game since May, tennis star Emma Raducanu took enough time off to recover from multiple injuries that required immediate surgeries. While the Briton was looking for a significant spot to hop back into the game, Melbourne became the landing spot for her comeback.

While fans eagerly waited for Emma Raducanu to be back on the courts with her action and charm, the 21-year-old used her protected ranking to make an entry into the upcoming Australian Open. However, it’s quite obvious that the rankings would still not allow the young star to fit in anywhere near the top spot. With such complexity over her comeback, the question that fits the mind of the fans currently is: Where do the current situations place the young star?

Emma Raducanu prepares herself for the tough Australian Open 2024 run

The British tennis player Emma Raducanu has been recovering from multiple injuries this year. She underwent surgery on both wrists and one of her ankles in May 2023 and has played only 10 games so far in 2023 due to injury. While the young star recently returned to practice after missing almost all the major events this season due to her injuries, she has finally decided to hop back in to resume her career.

Although it was impossible for the tennis star to participate in the upcoming Australian Open with her current ranking, which has dropped down to 296 due to her lack of participation, she used her special ranking, which is 103, to play the qualifiers for the tournament. Raducanu, who won the US Open in 2021, is eager to resume her career and compete at the highest level again. However, the participation will surely not be easy as the young Briton will have to secure her spot by competing in the qualifiers.

The fans, who were eagerly waiting for Raducanu to be back in the game, are now looking forward to a similar run that they witnessed during the US Open 2021, which she started from the qualifiers too.

Raducanu’s experience in achieving greatness as a qualifier

Emma Raducanu’s name has always been a recognized one since she won the US Open women’s singles title as a qualifier. That means she had to play more matches than other players to get into the main draw. Along with the long run to lifting the trophy, she also hit the mark of being the first qualifier ever to win a Grand Slam title. She did not lose a single set in the whole tournament while beating many strong players on her way to the final. Being ranked 150th in the world at the time, her win proved to be an amazing feat because of the long journey that she had to go through.

While the catch means that she will have to face tough opponents on her way to the top, the 21-year-old has high hopes attached to her run. As the young Briton prepares for her comeback, fans expect to witness history’s repetition once again.
