Emma Raducanu announcement leaves tennis fans gutted amid brutal year

Emma Raducanu’s 2022 season is reportedly over after organisers announced her withdrawal from the upcoming Transylvania Open with a wrist injury.

The British teenager became an overnight sensation when she won the US Open in 2021, becoming the first qualifier in tennis history to win a grand slam

However 2022 hasn’t been as kind on the 19-year-old, with a number of injuries and retirements blighting her season.

She has plummeted down to World No.67 in the rankings after a loss in the first round at the US Open – and she will continue to slide on the back of her latest withdrawal.

Raducanu, who lost to Daria Kasatkina in the first round of the WTA 500 event in Ostrava this week, was due back on court at the Transylvania Open next week.

The British No.1, whose father is Romanian, won her first WTA Tour matches in Cluj-Napoca last year when she reached the quarter-finals at the event.

But a message on the tournament’s Twitter feed read on Thursday: “Sadly, Emma Raducanu is forced to withdraw from Transylvania Open due to a wrist injury.

“Get well fast, Emma! We’re looking forward to see you soon.”
