English Tennis star Emma Raducanu has decided to pull out of the Transylvania Open due to a wrist injury. The update was confirmed by the organisers of the WTA 250 event. Raducanu has been dealing with constant injuries like blisters to side strains and hip and back problems throughout this season.
Similarly last month, Raducanu was forced to retire through injury in her semi-final fixture at the Korean Open in Seoul. The teenage tennis star posted a message on her Instagram.
The 2020 US Open winner posted, “sad to miss my Cluj friends this year.” Whereas, while talking to the Romanian publication GSP, the Transylvania Open director said, "Unfortunately, Emma Raducanu will not play at this edition of the Transylvania Open due to a wrist injury.”
She further talked about how Raducanu had to withdraw from the tournament as she was playing with a wrist injury that she has been dealing with from the tournament in Ostrava. Ciorcila said, "We have to start with some bad news. Unfortunately, Emma Răducanu had to withdraw. Late last night I received this information from her.”
“I also spoke with her agent, she just played the tournament in Ostrava and has a wrist injury that is forcing her to end her season prematurely. We are very sorry that she cannot be here, she was one of the main points of attraction for Cluj and the Romanian public."
Emma Raducanu’s latest fixture ended as a defeat against the Russian Daria Kasatkina at the Ostrava Open in the Czech Republic. The British Number one had some great moments but suffered a 7-5, 6-4 defeat. One of the biggest reasons behind her loss was too many errors which could have been avoided.
The Briton took a 3-2 lead after some sloppy play but Kasatkina was always on her toes as he went ahead with a 5-4 scoreline. The Russian built on this momentum and clinched the set 7-5. Emma had a similar fate in the second set as she had a few good parts but couldn’t handle World Number 11.
