Marion Bartoli thinks Emma Raducanu getting herself fully healthy and playing a full season on the Tour might be the to the 20-year-old returning to the level that landed her the 2021 US Open title. Two years ago, Raducanu made all the headlines when she became the first-ever qualifier male or female to win a Grand Slam title.

But then, Raducanu started to struggle with injuries and it very negatively impacted her performance and results. After struggling with injuries for quite some time, Raducanu underwent surgeries on both wrists and her right ankle in May.

Raducanu, who hasn’t won any titles since the 2021 US Open, hopes that when she returns to tennis, she will avoid setbacks and issues that plagued her before surgeries.

Bartoli: Raducanu needs to get her body right and play one full year

“It’s one thing to do it one time, which is already very difficult, but it is another thing to do it year after year after year.

I was in the top ten for six consecutive years in a row, so people started to know my name. You go from one tournament to another and this is how people follow you. If one year you are top ten and the second year you are 100 and the third year you are out of the top 100, then people forget about you.

It’s all about consistency and once you stop improving, that’s when you can go backwards. It’s all about improving some part of your game, your fitness and you need to look to work more. That can be a challenge when you have already achieved so much so young as it is difficult to get yourself going on the practice court.

I’m not blaming anyone, but if you want to build your profile and to be known by the public, you have to repeat your performance. For Emma, it’s all about getting herself healthy again so she can do a full year.

Since the US Open, she has had stop and go, stop and go. She plays one tournament and then she is on the sidelines for two months. If she gets her body right and has one full year, I feel she can go back to where she was when she was at the top of her game,” Bartoli told Tennis365.
