Emma Raducanu news leaves tennis fans saddened in brutal new blow

Emma Raducanu has made the tough decision to withdraw from the Madrid Open, which will see her fall out of the top 100 in a brutal blow for the 20-year-old. Raducanu entered the clay court season under an injury cloud as she struggled with a wrist problem during Indian Wells and Miami Open.



After her early exit at the Stuttgart Open, where she lost to Jelena Ostapenko, Raducanu needed a strong result in Madrid to avoid sliding down the rankings. And her tournament got off to an unusual start as Raducanu took part in a bizarre press conference.



Following the icy cold media exchange, Raducanu shocked the tennis world after she announced her withdrawal from Madrid. The tennis superstar withdrew from her match against 73rd-ranked Viktoriya Tomova due to her right wrist injury.

Her withdrawal from the WTA Masters event will see Raducanu drop out of the top 100. The former US Open winner could rely on a wildcard for her entry into Wimbledon if her ranking doesn’t improve.

Her withdrawal is a bitter blow for the 20-year-old who has faced a number of injury setbacks, despite her young age. Raducanu now remains a doubt on whether she will play at Roland Garros as she looks to regain fitness.

The 20-year-old would also have one-eye on Wimbledon and playing in front of her home crowd. Fans were saddened to hear Raducanu’s withdrawal as the tennis prodigy slides further down the rankings.
