Emma Raducanu no longer Britain’s best as US Open champ snubbed for LTA award

Emma Raducanu is no longer considered Britain’s best tennis player as the former US Open champion was snubbed for a prestigious LTA award. Raducanu suffered a host of injuries last year but did reach No.10 in the world rankings, despite not winning another tournament.



The 20-year-old was overlooked in the LTA Women’s Player of the Year award which was won by world No.113 Harriet Dart. The award was voted for by LTA members and coaches with the accolade based on performances during 2022.



Dart was beaten in the Australian and French Open first rounds while reaching a stage further at Wimbledon and the US Open. In comparison Radicanu reached the second round in three of the four Grand Slam tournaments.

While Raducanu won just one match at last year’s Indian Wells Masters her British rival came through qualifying to reach the fourth round for the first time in her career. Dart was highlighted for her performances in the Billie Jean King Cup finals when she helped Britain to her first semi-final since 1981.
