Emma Raducanu news: Andy Murray would be ‘more than happy to chat’ if US Open champion gives him a call
He is not going to just dish out unsolicited advice to Emma Raducanu following her latest disappointing result, but Andy Murray says he is just a phone call away if she wants to talk.
Raducanu is yet to string together a decent set of results in 2022 as she suffered an opening round defeat in her season-opener at the Sydney International before going down in the second round of the Australian Open.
After a three-week break, the US Open champion returned to action on Wednesday, but she retired with a left hip injury while 5-7, 7-6 (7-4) 4-3 down to Australia’s Daria Saville.
It was not the first time that Raducanu has had health or physical issues since her top-level debut as she also retired from her fourth-round clash at Wimbledon last year and suffered from blisters at the Australian Open.
Murray also struggled with injury at the begging of his career and he was asked about giving advice to the 19-year-old.
“I don’t think that I’m necessarily the right person to be giving advice on those things,” the three-time Grand Slam winner said.
“She has her team that she’s working with, that she will trust to help her through those moments.
“Yeah, if she wanted to know my advice, I’m sure she would message or speak to me and contact me, and I’d be more than happy to chat, but I’m not just going to dish out advice on that.”
