Emma Raducanu has given the thumbs up in a social media post announcing that she is officially calling the time for her first full season on the WTA Tour.
A wrist injury ended his hopes of making Great Britain’s squad for next week’s Billie Jean King Cup final at
“That’s it 22! on my own road, it’s all part of this unique journey! Cheers to the first year of touring,” Raducanu tweeted.
The former US Open champion was hoping to be fit to lead Anne Keothavong’s side in Scotland.
But she admitted defeat last week, dealing a blow to the hopes of the British team in what was already a difficult task.
After winning the US Open as a qualifier last year, Raducanu’s first full professional season has been tough with an early exit in the first round of the US Open and the second round of the other three Grand Slams. She also dropped to No. 76 in the WTA rankings after breaking into the top 10 in July.
Raducanu has struggled with injuries and had a succession of changes in his coaching setup, with Dmitry Tursunov being the latest to part ways with the teenager.
However, she had notable victories over Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka and Sloane Stephens, as well as the Korean Open semi-finals in Seoul.
