The US Open champion’s decision to work with Dmitry Tursunov has been called ‘a real shame’ by a Labour MP
For much of the past few months, as Emma Raducanu travelled the world without a permanent coach and assured all who asked that she could succeed while in full control of her destiny, her decisions were the subject of intense, constant attention. She may have now addressed those concerns, but there will be no end to the inspection of her choices.
This week Raducanu enlisted the coaching talents of the former top-20 ATP player Dmitry Tursunov on a trial period before the North American hard court swing and her US Open title defence. The hiring of Tursunov has led to significant criticism of her decision to work alongside a Russian as the invasion of Ukraine continues.
