Emma Raducanu news: Top Brit picks Andy Murray as her dream coach
US Open Champion Emma Raducanu has picked Andy Murray as her dream coach during a media day ahead of the Indian Wells Masters.
Raducanu resumes WTA Tour action in the California desert having battled injury in the first few months of 2022.
In a short clip shared by the Indian Wells Twitter account, Radacanu said that Andy Murray would be someone she could learn a lot from.

“Also Andy because he’s really good at breaking down the game,” Raducanu said.
“I feel like his insight and knowledge would be really helpful and I’d love to hear it.”
During a press conference on Wednesday, Emma Raducanu admitted that she’s still trying to find her competitive balance after a whirlwind six months.
“Still trying to figure it out, everything is very new and it’s going to take a while to really settle into it,” she said.
“I kind of accept that it’s not going to be the smoothest ride, it’s going to be bumpy. What can I do about it? I feel like I’ve been kind of put in a scenario that’s not really been done before and I’m just figuring it out as I go along.”
In February, Murray said he would be more than willing to speak with Raducanu, but only if she wanted his help.
“I don’t think that I’m necessarily the right person to be giving advice on those things,” he said.
“She has her team that she’s working with, that she will trust to help her through those moments.
“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.”
The 11th seeded Raducanu will face France’s Caroline Garcia in second-round action at the Indian Wells Masters.
Radacanu enjoyed a first round bye as a result of her seeding while Garcia defeated Dayana Yastremska of Ukraine in the first round.
