British tennis player Emma Raducanu announced on Wednesday that she had suffered “minor surgical operations” on the hands and an ankle which will prevent him from playing “for a few months” and will deprive him of the Roland-Garros and Wimbledon tournaments.“I am disappointed to have to announce that I will be away for the next few months. (…) It pains me to miss the summer tournaments“Wrote the 20-year-old player on her Instagram account.
If she does not give more details on the duration of her absence, she will not be able to play the Grand Slam tournaments at Roland-Garros, from May 22 to June 11, and Wimbledon, from July 3 to 16. Depending on the length of his recovery, his participation in the US Open, from August 28 to September 10, could also be threatened. “The last 10 months have been difficult to say the least as I battled a recurring injury to a bone“, she said on a handwritten page photographed on her official account, accompanied by another photo of her in a hospital bed with a large bandage on her right hand.

She added that she tried to heal by reducing the amount of training, not training at all for weeks or ending the previous season prematurely, but “unfortunately that was not enough“, she had to admit. “I’m going to have minor surgery on both hands to fix this (…) and while I’m at it I’m also going to have a minor surgery on an ankle“, she detailed.
Surprise winner of the US Open in September 2021 and climbed to 10th place in the world in July 2022, Raducanu then experienced a series of disappointments often linked to physical glitches. She is currently 85th in the WTA rankings, but she should be out of the top 100 very soon.
