Raducanu Shares An Update On Her Recovery In Her Visit To China

by Nurein Ahmed

British tennis star Emma Raducanu is currently in China painstakingly working on her recovery and shared an update on her journey so far.

The 20-year-old underwent multiple surgeries on both wrists and her ankle and has been out of action for a considerable period, lasting over four months. But she appears to have made steady progress in her comeback plans, returning to the court where she was pictured hitting tennis balls.

But a more recent update on Weibo, which is one of the biggest social media platforms in China, Raducaunu delved into a range of training methods in order to return to full fitness, sharing pictures at the gym, on a practice tennis court, and working with a physiotherapist.

"Experience different training environments"

The British sensation is back in her mother's home country and recently visited north-east China in a city called Shenyang where her family and close relatives live in. In an exclusive interview with Porsche, in which Raducanu is one of their brand ambassadors, she spoke fondly of the city and her to-do list while there. Asked what brings her back to the city, she says:

"Shenyang, my mom’s hometown, to visit most of my family, and re-immerse myself in the culture. We especially pride ourselves with the food in Shenyang. It is one of the best and is something that I have grown up with and love."

"I recently learned Mahjong and feel most at home and my true self when I’m around the kitchen table at my grandma or aunt’s place in Shenyang playing with family."

Raducanu took the tennis world by storm in the summer of 2021 when she became the first-ever qualifier in tennis history to win a Grand Slam. She achieved that unimaginable feat without the loss of a set. But two years on since that ultimate Cinderella story, Raducanu wished she never won that tournament.

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Radcuanu felt that the scrutiny intensified to a point where she was completely overwhelmed by expectations. She explains that injuries were a burden, and to compound matters, she struggled to keep her mental health in check.

"I was struggling with the physical pain but the mental side of it was really difficult for me too. I always want to put forward the best version of myself or strive for that, but I knew I couldn’t."

"I was under so much pressure to perform, people had no idea what was going on and I had to have this facade, to keep everything inside. It has been really hard. And then to be scrutinized for it when they don’t know what is going on."
