Emma Raducanu, the 2021 US Open champion, has been forced to withdraw from several major tennis tournaments due to a series of fitness problems.
The 20-year-old recently underwent a minor procedure on both hands and her ankle in an attempt to alleviate the issue, and as a result, will miss the French Open, the entire grass-court season, and Wimbledon. This comes as a major setback for the British tennis sensation, who has had a remarkable start to her career.
Raducanu’s absence from Wimbledon will undoubtedly disappoint her fans, who were eagerly anticipating her return to the tournament after her incredible run to the fourth round in 2018.
However, the young player’s health and well-being are of paramount importance, and her decision to prioritize her recovery shows her maturity and professionalism.
