However, the young Briton is not in the best of form lately. She has suffered from injury issues too. Recently she crashed out of the French Open after losing her second-round match against Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus.

The 19-year-old was preparing for the upcoming Wimbledon championship by playing in the Nottingham Open, but sadly, she suffered a freak injury again. Looking at the trouble the teenager is facing, Andy Murray’s mother and tennis coach Judy Murray shared some valuable advice.

Judy Murray’s advice to Emma Raducanu

While Raducanu tasted success at a very young age, her career hasn’t taken off after her Grand Slam win last year. The Briton has made multiple coaching changes but has failed to get the momentum and desired fitness level. The 19-year-old is expected to be fit before Wimbledon.

Judy Murray, the mother of tennis star Andy Murray, said that the reason for stress is switching from junior to WTA Tour level and her body will need time to mature. She also suggested that Raducanu should hire an expert who understands the female body.

“What’s becoming increasingly clear is that Raducanu’s body needs time to mature. If you strip away the fact she was catapulted into this amazing success following her US Open triumph last September, she is no different to any other young player in the sense that her body needs time to fill out, become more robust and resilient.”

“How many of today’s top female players, I wonder, are harnessing the peaks and troughs of their cycle? And tailoring it to their training and performance? How many could feel more empowered by investing in a woman’s health physio or specialist and making their entourage that bit more female-centric?” wrote Judy in her column.
