With her loss at the French Open yesterday to Aliaksandra Sasnovich, Emma Raducanu will set her sights on playing on the grass in front of her home fans first the first time as a Grand Slam champion.
“It’s going to be really nice to go home and play, you know, on home turf, on the home grass,” Raducanu said. “It is going to be a little bit strange in the beginning, because I have played on clay court for so long now, I feel like it’s been weeks. Like, going onto a grass court I’m probably going to be a bit shocked at first.
“I’m really looking forward to playing in front of the fans at home, and just all the support. Last year I experienced a little taste of it, but I feel like this year might be a bit more. Yeah, I’m just really looking forward to the atmosphere that’s going to be around.”
Raducanu is expected to open her grass season in Birmingham on June 11. But next month will mark the end of her first full year on tour.
“It’s pretty much a year anniversary since my comeback to kind of competitive tennis. I was playing a Brit tour in Connaught,” Raducanu said.
“I think I have come a long way since then. I think I do really welcome going around the second time. I think this year was always going to be challenging for me to adjust, find my feet. There’s always something new. Like I’m always asking where everything is. I have no idea where everything is.
“It’s going to be a lot more familiar this time around. I feel like in the last 12 months I have definitely grown a lot.”
Raducanu also remains coachless though is getting help from the LTA.
