Emma Raducanu US Open 2021

Emma Raducanu ditches coach following surprise US Open win

Emma Raducanu has split from her coach Andrew Richardson less that two weeks after winning the US Open.

Raducanu made history in New York by becoming the first qualifier to ever win a Grand Slam tournament.

That meant she had to come through ten matches rather than the usual seven, which she did without dropping a single set.

However, the 18-year-old has now taken the decision to seek a coach with more Tour level pedigree as she plots an assault on the WTA top ten.

Emma Raducanu has seen her life instantly transformed by her success in New York.

She picked up the winners’ prize money of around $2.5million and immediately jumped more than 100 places in the world rankings.

Last week she also secured a major new endorsement deal with jewellery giant Tiffany & Co.
