Emma Raducanu sparks injury fears at the US Open as training is hampered by wrist problems

Emma Raducanu sparked injury fears on the eve of defending her US Open title.

The British number one twice interrupted training with Russia’s Ekaterina Alexandrova at Flushing Meadows on Friday and burst into tears on the pitch.

Raducanu had taped her right wrist and seemed uncomfortable before temporarily pausing the session, her first at the US Open this year, after just over half an hour.

The 19-year-old appeared to feel something in her wrist and was comforted by coach Dmitry Tursunov before walking to the edge of the pitch in tears.

After recovering, Raducanu returned to the court and continued hitting with forehands, but shortly after the session was called off again and the 11th seed went off the court with physio Will Herbert for about 15 minutes.

There was no further cause for concern as Raducanu wrapped up the two-hour session, serving and playing points.

She was due to face media later on Friday before taking on France’s Alize Cornet in the first round on Tuesday.
