Emma Raducanu issues plea for an experienced coach to get in touch

Emma Raducanu has issued a call for an experienced coach.

The 22-year-old superstar stunned the world recently when she won the US Open but split with coach Andrew Richardson shortly afterwards suggesting she was now looking for someone with professional tour experience.

And she's now asking for top coaches to get in touch.

She said: “I think that I would love to have someone with great experience right now by my side so if any experienced coaches are out there looking, you know where to find me."

Emma was recently knocked out of Indian Wells losing to Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich and says although she had former British number one Jeremy Bates assisting in a coaching capacity, it's not a long-term solution.

She added: “Jeremy Bates is here just to help me out with this week but he was here with Katie Boulter.

"So I don't know what's going on."

Emma's decision to part ways with Richardson drew criticism from former British tennis star John Lloyd who said he couldn't understand the timing.

He said: “I find it hard to believe Emma made that decision.

“Look at the celebrations Emma had with Richardson and the team after she won the US Open.

“She described it as the most joyous moment of her career.

"Three weeks later, that relationship was over."
