Emma Raducanu reveals struggles with tennis career and pressure after US Open win

Emma Raducanu, the British tennis player who won the 2019 US Open without losing a set as a qualifier, has spoken about the negative impact her success has had on her career. In an interview with "The Times," the 20-year-old admitted that she sometimes wished she had never won the tournament.

Raducanu has been reflecting on her tennis career and the challenges of being a professional athlete during her current injury break. She said that she had faced numerous setbacks since 2018, and that although she is resilient, it has not been easy. "Sometimes I think, 'I wish I had never won the US Open, I wish it had never happened,'" she said.

Despite this, Raducanu still remembers the feeling of winning the US Open and tries to focus on that to stay motivated. She also spoke about the difficult realities of being a tennis player, describing the tour as "completely brutal" and stating that some in the industry see her as only a "money-making asset" because of her age.

Raducanu has been dealing with injuries to her wrist and ankle and missed the French Open. She may miss most of the season due to her injuries. Her last match was in April at the Stuttgart Open, where she was defeated by Latvia's Jelena Ostapenko.

Additionally, Raducanu recently parted ways with her coach, Sebastian Sachs. He was her fifth coach in two years, with Nigel Sears, Andrew Richardson, Torben Beltz, and Dmitri Tursunov having coached her previously.
