England tennis star Emma Raducanu is set to miss the upcoming French Open and Wimbledon. Raducanu has been ruled out after undergoing surgery on her wrists and ankle. The British star posted a hand-written letter on her social media handles.
The letter talked about how the last few months have been extremely difficult and is set to be out of action for the coming few months as she has undergone a minor procedure on both of her hands.
Emma Raducanu's letter said, "It is safe to say the last 10 months have been difficult as I dealt with a recurring injury on a bone of both hands," she said. "I tried my best to manage the pain and play through it for most of this year and end of last year by reducing practice load dramatically, missing weeks of training as well as cutting last season short to try heal it.
"Unfortunately it's not enough. I'm having a minor procedure done on both hands to resolve the issues. I'm disappointed to share that I will be out for the next few months and while I am at it will have another minor procedure that is due on my ankle.
"It pains me that I will miss the summer events and I tried to downplay the issues so I thank all my fans who continued to support me when you did not know the facts."

The hand problems where her bone, very close to the wrists have been involved led to an early end to her 2022 season. These issues have since flared up at various points this year. This includes last week when Emma Raducanu was forced to withdraw from the Madrid Open just hours before she was scheduled to play her first-round match.
