Emma Raducanu is hitting balls on a tennis court again, but there’s something unusual about her latest training regimen.
The 20-year-old is trying to get back to full fitness after a wrist injury and posted a video of her on the court on Instagram. However, in the clip, she was seen using only her left hand.
The injury to her right wrist saw Raducanu end her first full season on the WTA Tour early and forced her to withdraw from the Transylvania Open and the Billie Jean King Cup in Glasgow.

The injury was another setback in what has been a frustrating year for the British star, who endured a disrupted season due to Covid, before suffering a string of muscle problems, blisters and back problems.
The troubles have derailed her 2022, and Raducanu has been unable to reach the heights of last year, which saw her rise to stardom thanks to her historic win at the US Open in Flushing Meadows.

Raducanu has recruited Jez Green, Andy Murray’s former strength coach, to improve her fitness on the tour
She’s now trying to improve her fitness as she copes with life on tour, after finishing a year with a negative 17-18 record, and she’s enlisted the help of Andy Murray’s former strength coach Jez Green.
The world number 75 is currently preparing for an exhibition match against Ons Jabeur in Abu Dhabi next month, but is unlikely to risk playing if her wrist has not healed.
However, Raducanu still has time to ensure she is race-ready for the start of the 2023 season, with the first scheduled event of next year being Auckland’s ASB Classic in January.
2022 is a far cry from last year’s heroics in which Raducanu won the US Open
