Emma Raducanu has quit from three matches since winning the US Open in September, saying, “I have no clue about Wimbledon,” when trailing Viktorija Golubic 4-3 in the first set at the Nottingham Open. Emma Raducanu’s injury-related withdrawal from the Nottingham Open has raised questions about whether or not she will be ready for Wimbledon.
The adolescent, who has continued injury issues, required a medical break early in her match with Switzerland’s Viktorija Golubic after experiencing a difficulty with her left side.
She sought medical attention and took painkillers in an effort to continue, but she was forced to abandon the match with a 4-3 deficit in the first set for the third time since winning the US Open in September.
Following her withdrawal, Raducanu stated that she would require a scan to determine the severity of the injury and that she has “no clue” if she will be ready for Wimbledon.
The opening game was a complete oddity. I believe I did something, but I’m not really sure what occurred “She spoke.”I just left the court after suffering an unbelievable injury. I am unsure of what more I could have done. So that’s all.
The British No. 1 asserted that this condition was unrelated to her most recent back injury and said she was unable to “get a break.”
She said, “I am trying to maintain the good outlook that I have been experiencing.
“I’ve done a great job of preparing for this competition. I was feeling nice and at ease, and I believe that even when I was playing, there were indications that I was content with playing more forcefully and other things. It is just unfortunate.
“Obviously, I’m unhappy, and this is just poor luck. When I feel like I have been working extremely poorly, I almost feel like I should be catching a break, but I haven’t really.
That is beyond my control, but for the time being, all I can concentrate on is what I am doing, and I believe I am doing excellent work. I simply need to have faith that it will materialize since everything that is occurring now is for a reason, and I am precisely where I should be.
Her first match in the UK since her legendary run to the fourth round of Wimbledon last year, which she followed with a spectacular triumph at Flushing Meadows, was at the Nottingham Open.
As she continues to struggle with the physical rigors of life on the WTA Tour, the retirement will raise more concerns about her physical condition.
