Rick Macci, who was Venus and Serena Williams’ former coach, has acknowledged that he has spoken to Emma Raducanu about becoming a potential star. Macci is certain that Raducanu can swiftly regain her confidence since he thinks she is technically proficient and mentally powerful.

Although injured, Raducanu might make a comeback before the 2023 season is over. Macci thinks he can help Raducanu get back to winning the Grand Slam if he can get along with her.

Coach Macci shared his thoughts: “I reached out to her agent earlier in the season. It will be interesting to see what happens there, I’ve never talked to her. I’d need to sit down with her and her parents to work out how much she still wants it. People looking from the outside in will always have an opinion on what’s going on. Her life changed in the blink of an eye after the U.S. Open.”

He further added: “I’d like to get inside her head- you’d be hoping that she wants to be the number one in the world and genuinely believe she can win slams again. She has the ability, she’s a great athlete, technically sound, and has a great serve.”
