‘I trust my own decision-making’ – Emma Raducanu confident over coaching decisions
British starlet Emma Raducanu has backed herself over her coaching decisions stating she is “pretty confident” in how she is working.
Last month, Raducanu announced she was splitting with renowned coach Torben Beltz after just five months of working together.
Interestingly, the decision to do so came after the British number one’s best run of results as she claimed her first professional clay court victory at the Billie Jean King Cup as well as reach the quarter-finals of the Stuttgart Open – losing to eventual winner and world number one Iga Swiatek.
Beltz was the third coach that Raducanu had parted ways with in just nine months, as she split from Nigel Sears after her Wimbledon breakthrough and did not extend her trial with Andrew Richardson after her historic US Open triumph.
Since the Madrid Open, Raducanu has been working with the LTA and will do so “in the interim.”
The 19-year-old’s coaching decisions have come under scrutiny, with former British professional tennis player Barry Cowan calling for Raduncanu to find consistency.
However, Raducanu said she is happy and “pretty confident” when it comes to her decision making.
Speaking in an exclusive interview WSJ magazine, the Bromley born teen told reporters, “That is definitely a journey [where] I’m learning on the way but it’s just what works for me as an individual.”
“It might not work for anyone else and people might look at me like I’m crazy but I trust my own decision-making and my own beliefs of what I think is right for myself.
“I’m pretty confident in how I’m working and my mindset and outlook towards how I’m approaching my tennis right.”
