Andy Murray’s thoughts on coaching as the Emma Raducanu link-up becomes more public.
Emma Raducanu, the US Open champion, is without a coach after parting ways with Andrew Richardson.
Emma Raducanu, the US Open champion, is looking for a new coach after parting ways with Andrew Richardson. In light of her Flushing Meadows victory last month, the 18-year-old cut ties with her mentor.
Following her maiden Wimbledon appearance earlier this year, Raducanu fired prior coach Nigel Sears.
Following her meteoric journey to the top this summer, the adolescent sensation is thought to be on the market for a coach with more tour experience.
Going into Wimbledon in June, Raducanu was essentially unknown. In her first Grand Slam performance, though, her efforts got her to the fourth round.
Raducanu won the US Open just over two months later, defeating fellow teenager Leylah Fernandez in the final.
Raducanu is expected to choose a new coach in the new year, and she will be inundated with offers.
Andy Murray, a three-time Grand Slam champion, is one man who has been suggested to work with the player in the future.
The 34-year-old has been hampered by injury issues in recent years, but he continues to compete on the circuit.
He advanced to the third round of Wimbledon this year before being eliminated in the first round of the US Open.
Murray has already stated his intention to remain in sport when his playing days are over, although he acknowledges he may not choose a non-playing career in tennis.
“I enjoy sports, so working in another sport would be something else that would interest me after I retire,” Murray told Gentleman’s Journal.
“I was approached about this not long ago, and because I enjoy golf, I think being a caddie on a golf tour would be amazing — to get up close and personal with great golfers while learning about another sport.”
“On the mental side of things, there’s certainly some crossover between tennis and golf, and assisting a golfer with that may be intriguing.” “Or earning my coaching badges in football – that would be fun.”
Raducanu and Murray have been given wildcards to the Indian Wells tournament and will be competing for the first time next week.
“I was ranked around 200 in the world after Wimbledon,” Raducanu stated after her breakup with Richardson.
“At the time, I assumed Andrew would be,” said the author of “Brinkwire Summary News.”
