One potential Christmas contender appears to be Raducanu, who is less than a year old and currently ranked 12th on the WTA table. Since the Briton won the New York Championship, she is often compared to the current best player in the world rankings. However, the 19-year-old showed her potential earlier, because during last year’s Wimbledon, for which she got a wild card and used it superbly, because she only stopped in the 1/8 finals.

The sensational tennis player has recently come under increasing criticism for being preoccupied with after-sales sponsorship deals more than the tennis tournaments are. Such words only reinforced the poor results of the young player, since she has won only a few matches since her great success. “She was accused that the development of the sport is not a priority. This group did not include only anonymous netizens. Kim Clijsters, who praised Iga Švitek for her correct approach to building a career, pointed out a different position. It is true that the famous Belgian did not mention the name of the British woman directly , but it was clear that when she spoke about the players who took a step back, she meant, among other things, the champion of the US Open 2021 ”- wrote Agnieszka Nidzialek in Sport.pl.

When Raducano announced that she would be in the lead again, Daniela Hantuchova warned that after a string of defeats it would not be easy for her. All the respect she had in the locker room after the US Open is now more or less gone. It is important for Emma to think about what she needs to change and pay attention to in training. There is no other way – only hard work – summed up the former Slovak tennis player.

The Świątek – Raducanu match in Stuttgart will be interesting because both players met during the Wimbledon Junior Championships in 2018. Then the Pole outperformed her opponent, allowing her to win only one match. Now they both have one Grand Slam victory. If the Great Britain representative beats Korbach, then on Friday she will have the opportunity to play in order to reveal the start of the 20-year tennis season.
