After making a successful return from three surgeries at the start of the 2024 season, Raducanu’s first couple of tournaments went great in the health aspect as she didn’t experience any injuries or physical setbacks.

In late March, Raducanu suffered her first physical setback of the year after she was forced to skip the Miami Open due to a lower back injury. However, there wasn’t much concern about the 2021 US Open champion’s back injury a couple of weeks ago because her team was quick to note it wasn’t anything too serious.

This week, Raducanu is slated to return to action when Great Britain takes on France on the clay courts of Rouen on Friday and Saturday. Ahead of the BJK Cup qualifiers tie, the LTA shot a video with Raducanu being the main actor as the former world No. 10 was revealing her serve tips and technique.

Raducanu goes into detail about her service

While Raducanu appearing with her calf taped may be concerning to some, the 21-year-old Briton sharing her service secrets and tips was definitely an interesting thing to hear.

“So, second serve I might mix it up a little bit. So, I’ll go for a kicker, where I’m trying to brush the ball left to right. And then I might mix it with like a sliced one, body, faster. Throw in a wide one potentially. Trying to get round the outside,” Raducanu said in the video.

“First serves maybe, so I flatter one T. I think it’s just important to really go up through the shot on this one, not go forward. And then a first wide… Just a lot of speed but up, because you don’t want a heavy contact, you want very thin.”
