Renowned coach Rick Macci says that by the end of the 2025 season, Emma Raducanu will be back in the top 10 in the WTA Rankings. The American coach also says he is sure she will win more Grand Slams.

Raducanu is ranked No. 303 in the world, nearly two years after her bid for the US Open title in 2021 pushed her to a career-high of No. 10. Macci is hopeful that the 21-year-old will soon regain his form and move back up the rankings.

In an interview, he said: “You don’t lose the skill, but you kind of lose the will and I don’t know what’s in her head. But, when she plays every point like it’s her last breath and she’s the ultimate competitor, I can see. I said it before she’ll be top 10 in the world by the end of 2025. Once you get in that top 10, you can beat anybody anytime anywhere and I believe that she can win Grand Slams again.”

Macci added: “Well, first off, I am a big fan because I think anybody that qualifies for a Grand Slam and then wins a Grand Slam without losing a set. You don’t lose talent and you don’t lose ability. But, at the end of the day, everything changed around her in the blink of an eye. But absolutely, it takes a long time to get your confidence back.”
