Emma Raducanu vs Caroline Garcia: 2024 Billie Jean King Cup - Preview & Prediction

by Zachary Wimer

Emma Raducanu will make her comeback on clay against Caroline Garcia at the 2024 Billie Jean King Cup.

It's going to be a very hostile environment for Raducanu in France when she takes on Garcia in the Billie Jean King Cup. There's not much needed to reignite the French and British rivalry, and that's expected to happen in this tie.

It's also going to be a hugely important match for both countries, as one of those players will have a chance to give their country a 2-0 lead while the other will try to prevent the country from having that deficit.

Raducanu and Garcia have played before, so let's see who might win this third match, which is the most important match of their rivalry so far.


Raducanu and Garcia have played twice so far, and both players have won one match. The first one came in 2022 at the Indian Wells Open, which Raducanu won in three sets, while Garcia won the second one at Wimbledon later that year.

It's an interesting matchup on paper, which suits the Frenchwoman more if it's played in faster conditions. Her serve can do a lot of damage then, but on this slower court, Raducanu might have an edge.

It's an indoor event that will speed up things, and I don't think it's by accident. Those are the sort of conditions that should give Garcia a boost when it comes to her serve, and she's played pretty decently this year.

5-5 2024 W/L 9-8
103-54 Career W/L 460-347


Raducanu also had some good moments, but it's going to be tough for her. The stands will be packed with French fans, and Garcia plays really well at home. I do think that she will ultimately overpower Raducanu in the Brit's return to clay.

Prediction: Caroline Garcia to win in three sets.
