Raducanu Sheds Light On Collaboration With Her New Coach Ahead Of Australian Open

by Zachary Wimer

Emma Raducanu has a weird reputation with coaches since she changed them quite a few times, and she's trialing yet another new coach for the 2024 Australian Open.

Her reputation, of course, is changing coaches often, which started back when she won the US Open. To the shock of everybody, Raducanu let go of the coach who was with her during that monumental tennis achievement and then hired a new coach.

The reasoning was that she needed an experienced name to guide her in 'professional' tennis. The former coach of Angelique Kerber stepped up, but Torben Beltz didn't last long.

He, too, was let go after a few months, and then fans saw Raducanu work with Dmitry Tursunov. The Russian developed a reputation by unlocking the potential of several players, most notably Anett Kontaveit who would rise up to world number two in the rankings.

That didn't last either, as the Russian hinted at too much interference from her camp. After that, Raducanu didn't really need a coach because she didn't play because of her injury, but that changed ahead of this year and the comeback.

She went back to a former coach, Nick Cavaday, for the Australian Open and recently reflected on how it has been going.

"Yeah, of course. I mean, we're just taking it how it goes. It's been working really well so far. I of course hope to continue with him because I feel very comfortable with him. I know his sister really well because, like, everyone is from Bromley. It's pretty good (smiling)."

It's good to hear that Raducanu is very comfortable because her coaching situation is what many former players urged her to fix.

She must find somebody and stick with that person for a while to see what happens according to many. It seems like she found that, but let's see what happens in the coming weeks and months.
