Emma Raducanu has just brought on his team a new coach: Dmitry Tursunov. The former Russian player will work with Emma only on a trial basis in Washington, and later they will discuss if it makes sense to continue the partnership.
Nevertheless, the US Open champion is enjoying a rather good run in Washington, where she reached the quarter-finals. Talking about her new coach, Emma said that she is quite happy to have him around.
“He’s a really relaxed guy and personality. I think that he is great to have around. When you are 5-All in the breaker, he’s still chill, probably making some really bad joke. He’s got a good sense of humor.
He’s good to have around in the team. He’s teaching me how to be easier on myself, not trying to chase this perfection. You can win and not be perfect.”
