Emma Raducanu's shocking revelation about her body part
World No. 12 Emma Raducanu said a blister on her foot heavily affected her during a Billie Jean King Cup match versus Marketa Vondrousova.
Vondrousova, who won the silver medal for the Czech at the Tokyo, smashed Raducanu 6-1 6-1 in a Billie Jean King Cup match in Prague.
On Friday, Raducanu won her first professional claycourt match after beating Teresa Martintsova.
A day later, Raducanu got broken four times in the first set as Vondrousova easily won the opener.
Vondrousova dominated the second set as well, breaking Raducanu three times to seal a straight-set win.
"I have a blister on my foot, it kind of showed up after yesterday’s match and we’ve been managing it but ....
...as you saw I couldn’t really move or load either way and now it’s just about trying to get it better as soon as possible," she explained.
"It completely stopped me from moving, it’s tough to not even be able to chase the ball, even if the ball came around me I was struggling to get my feet out of ..
the way and moving to my backhand, it was compromising every shot, it is very disappointing when you’re out there....
...playing a rubber for your country. and you feel completely redundant but I guess I can’t really do anything about it.
I think my tennis level is pretty good, it’s just about being able to repeat it or maintain it or not be hampered by any kind of ...
physical issues and as soon as I sort all these out and keep building on my tennis level then I think I will be able to put out good matches back-to-back.
