Tursunov parted ways with Emma Raducanu
Emma Raducanu’s former coach Dmitry Tursunov has stated that the Brit will figure things out and get back to top form as she is a smart player. “I mean, with me, she was [a hard worker].
Sooner or later, she’s just gonna sort it out,” he stated. “She’s too smart of a person not to sort out you know. She loves tennis too much not to figure it out. It’s just a question of how long it’s gonna take her and how difficult the road is going to be,” he added” “But, I think she’s the person who is willing to go a bumpy road.
She’s super young. But, she’s very demanding of herself and she pushes herself a lot,” he said. “She’s super tough on herself but to me, I felt like she’s an incredible and intelligent person.”
