Second Serve

Emma Raducanu has pulled out of this week’s WTA event (Summer Set 250) in Melbourne, due to the fact that she has not had enough time to prepare to recover from the isolation that was caused Covid-19.

The 19-year-old announced the news on Saturday, saying “The timing to compete in the first Melbourne event this week is too soon for me, having just returned from isolation.”

Raducanu tested positive for Covid-19 on December 14. She has recently arrived in Melbourne and posted a video of herself practicing on Rod Laver Arena on Friday. It appears that she will be fine to play the Australian Open, which begins on January 17.
