Emma Raducanu agent explains Brit’s struggles ahead of Wimbledon – ‘Tough year’



EMMA RADUCANU has struggled since her famous US Open triumph last year, and heads into Wimbledon with injury fears.

Emma Raducanu’s agent, Max Eisenbud, has insisted the teenager’s growing list of sponsorship deals is not having a negative effect on her on-court performances, as he explained why she has struggled to find her form recently.



In the process, she also became the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade’s 1977 Wimbledon win. The victory catapulted Raducanu into superstardom and sparked huge interest in her from sponsors.

The 19-year-old has worked with the likes of Nike, Tiffany and Porsche and recently announced a new partnership with HSBC. On the court, however, she has struggled since her US Open victory.



Raducanu has suffered a variety of injury setbacks, switched coaches three times in nine months and failed to win back-to-back matches at a major tournament. And Eisenbud believes her recent struggles have nothing to do with her off-court commitments.




In an appearance on the BBC’s ‘The Sports Desk’ podcast, Eisenbud said: “We could have done 50 days of shoots. I’ve never seen the amount of excitement and companies that wanted to be in business with Emma after the US Open.

“It’s been a tough year. I think she got a lot of bad luck and what really hurt her was [catching] Covid and not having a great off-season, and then she was playing catch up.
