Former US Open champion Emma Raducanu was forced to withdraw from the Austin Open due to illness. The 20-year-old was scheduled to compete in her first match at the Texas tournament since she lost to Coco Gauff at the Australian Open in January, but she withdrew minutes before the overnight draw. . “I regret that I have to withdraw from the ATX Open,” Raducanu was quoted as saying by Skysports. “I am currently suffering from tonsillitis and cannot compete this week. Thank you tournament for the great hospitality here in Austin,” she added. The 2021 US Open winner has agreed to compete in the inaugural event of the WTA Tour, which begins Monday at Westwood Country Club.

A 16-team doubles field will also be present at the competition, which will be the first to be held in the United States during the WTA’s 50th anniversary season.

The first six days of the ATX Open, which will take place from February 27 to March 5, will feature two sessions, one during the day and one at night.

Since his spectacular win at Flushing Meadows, Raducanu has struggled with injury and underperformance in his first full season on tour.

After working on his fitness and conditioning during the offseason, he had high hopes of getting back in shape this year.

He suffered a setback with injury just before the first Grand Slam of the year, but recovered in time for the Australian Open.

Before the French Open, she took a short break from competitive tennis, but her withdrawal from the Austin Open is a blow to her fledgling career.
