US Open Champion Raducanu Tested Positive for COVID-19

Emma Raducanu hopes to “get back soon” after testing positive for Covid-19 and withdrawing from the Mubadala World Tennis Championships.

The US Open champion was due to play Olympic gold medallist Belinda Bencic in the exhibition event in Abu Dhabi.

Briton Raducanu, who became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam title in New York, is isolating.

The 19-year-old is scheduled to play in a WTA Melbourne warm-up tournament next month before the Australian Open.

Raducanu has had mixed success since her US Open triumph with two wins from five matches and has recently teamed up with Torben Beltz as her new coach.

The Mubadala World Tennis Championship takes place between December 16-18 and will feature two-time champion, Andy Murray.

The Australian Open starts on January 17 and requires players to be vaccinated against the virus and return a negative test 72 hours before they arrive in the country.

Raducanu is currently ranked 19th in the world and whilst she still can improve on that when the tournament arrives, she will go into it with less preparation time once her isolation ends.
