British tennis star Emma Raducanu had a brilliant start to her career. To come into the US Open through the qualifiers and going all the way to lift the title was an incredible feat. While the Briton did the unthinkable, she failed to replicate it when people started expecting great things from her. After having a disastrous 2022 season, she again started this campaign in a disappointing fashion. She lost to Coco Gauff in the second round and crashed out of the Australian Open.

After failing to do anything significant in the 2022 season, some fans have given up on Raducanu. However, Tursunov believes that the fire is still there inside Raducanu and believes she will find a way to turn things around.
