Emma Raducanu Cincinnati Open 2022

Emma Raducanu splits with coach, begins work with former Andy Murray trainer

Emma Raducanu is reportedly no longer working with Dmitry Tursonov after being with the coach over the summer. 

The 2021 US Open champion was joined by the Russian at the US Open and in Ostrava. Both events saw her lose in the first round, to Alizé Cornet in New York and Daria Kasatkina in the Czech Republic. Reports suggest Tursonov will join an as yet unnamed WTA rival, with the partnership beginning as early as next week.

Moreover, Raducanu is apparently now working with fitness trainer Jez Green. Green worked with Andy Murray from 2007 to 2014. He has also worked with Alexander Zverev and 2020 US Open champion Dominic Thiem.

Raducanu has reportedly enlisted Green until the end of 2022, with the possibility of extending their arrangement into 2023.

The split with Tursonov comes after coaching stints with Nigel Sears, Andrew Richardson and Torben Beltz in the last 16 months, since Wimbledon 2021.

Raducanu may not play again in 2022 as she is sidelined with a wrist injury. However, she remains part of the Team Great Britain line-up for the Billie Jean King Cup Finals beginning 8th November in Glasgow, UK.

Raducanu has registered a 17-19 win-loss record in her first full season the WTA tour. Still just 19, physical fitness has been her biggest obstacle in 2022. Ailments have hand blisters at the Australian Open, a left leg injury in February and an apparent abdominal problem in June ahead of Wimbledon.

She has retired mid-match four times over the season, a problem Green will no doubt aim to fix heading into 2023.
