British women’s number one Emma Raducanu says she is “ready to go” at Wimbledon

0 6

British women’s number one Emma Raducanu says she is “ready to go” at Wimbledon after a week of uncertainty caused by a side strain. Raducanu, 19, will make her Centre Court debut when she plays Belgium’s Alison van Uytvanck on Monday.

Asked if it led to concerns she could not play, she said: “There were moments in the week we weren’t really sure.” Andy Murray has also faced a race to be fit but says the past few days have

been “really positive”. The two-time champion has been hampered by an abdominal injury which forced her out of Queen’s.

“I feel like I’m in a good place,” said the 35-year-old Scot. Raducanu, seeded 10th, faces Van Uytvanck at about 16:00 BST on Monday, with the unseeded Murray playing Australia’s James Duckworth on the 15,000-seater show court afterwards. Serbia’s Novak Djokovic, who is the defending men’s champion, opens the tournament on Centre Court as tradition dictates.

Raducanu pulled out of the Eastbourne International last week because of the strain, leaving her short of grass-court preparation before Wimbledon. She managed just seven games against Viktorija Golubic at the Nottingham Open before retiring from the match, which has been her only outing on the grass this summer.

Raducanu practised at Wimbledon as scheduled on Saturday, appearing to serve normally and with a full range of shots. Afterwards in her pre-tournament news conference, the 10th seed did not say if she was still feeling pain because of the problem. “Right now I’m fit. I’m ready to go. I’m looking forward to it – that’s it,” said Raducanu, who reached the last 16 on her Wimbledon debut last year.

“We were sort of going to see how the week goes, but it went pretty well. “Now it’s full steam ahead. Everyone’s really looking forward to it.” Murray has been left frustrated by an abdominal injury which he picked up in the Stuttgart final on 12 June.

It is the latest niggling setback for the former world number one and came just as he began to look in good form on the grass courts. After saying on Monday he could still not hit specific shots because of the injury, Murray has upped the workload and appeared to be serving normally

in practice with fellow Briton Dan Evans on Friday. “I’ve been able to gradually progress my training this week and got to play a few sets, a lot of points,” said the 2013 and 2016 Wimbledon champion. “The past few days have been good.” (BBC sports)
