Good morning tennis fans
Emma Raducanu has no regrets about competing with an injury in her opening match in the second round at the Australian Open.
Speaking about the decision to play to overcome the pain, Raducana said: “When I stepped on the field, I made my decision.
“I had the option of withdrawing before the game but after everything, Covid, being here, fighting back after last week’s loss, I want to give everything I have.
“I’m on the other side of the world! And I know my hand will be fine in two days. It’s not long term. I was able to build on this pretty quickly and start working on my game again. ”
Teen superstar Naomi Osaka also defied after she was eliminated in the third round of Open today.
She declared after the loss to Amanda Anisimova unequivocally: “I fought for every point. I can’t be sad about that.
“I am not God. I can’t win every game. I have to take that into account and know that it would be great to win the tournament, but it’s really special.
“I can not [expect] myself to win a Grand Slam every year at the beginning of the year. ”
The Osaka draw was not without controversy, and fans went wild after Eurosport’s news of the Australian Open was cut during her match against Anisimova.
