Following that, she suffered a side strain injury in the first event of the grass swing. That probably played a part in Raducanu‘s initial round defeat in her home Grand Slam and the US Open. However, her misery didn’t end there. She fell prey to a glute injury when she was just a step away from the finals of the Korea Open.

Can Raducanu overcome her injury struggles and regain her touch in 2023?
