Following a second-round exit in her French Open debut last month, Emma Raducanu has accelerated her grass-court training. Raducanu has hinted that her dream of partnering up with Andy Murray for mixed double contests could happen soon. She’s on her fourth coach in a year and has had to deal with a slew of minor ailments since winning the US Open. Raducanu added she and Murray, the former world number one, would want to work together.

‘we feel we both want to do’

“We haven’t actually spoken about it but it’s something we both feel we both want to do, I’m not sure if this is going to be the year but hopefully it will happen.” said US Open champion Raducanu, who begins her Wimbledon preparations at the Nottingham Open. Andy Murray, 36, is a two-time Wimbledon champion who previously competed in the mixed doubles at the grass-court Grand Slam with American Serena Williams, a 23-time major singles winner.

The 19 year old was forced to quit from her fourth-round match at Wimbledon last summer after experiencing respiratory issues. “It was the biggest court I’d played on, there were a lot of people there and I was really excited to keep going. To not be able to finish the match was really tough for me – but I had a really positive week. But what happened in the last match at Wimbledon was pretty difficult at the time and I had no idea how I would react after that.” expressed the Briton.

Raducanu has accelerated her grass-court training following a second-round loss at the French Open last month. “It has been a really tricky 12 months, to be honest. It hasn’t always been easy. I’ve definitely learnt a lot about myself and I would say my approach is definitely different now. I’m a lot more focused on the process of what I’m doing every single day because I know that’s the only thing I can control.” said Raducanu.

Now as the French Open is done and dusted Wimbledon is all set to begin on the 27th June 2022.
