Emma Raducanu has been out of action for the majority of the 2023 season, yet she became the third most searched female athlete in the past year.  Raducanu cut short her 2023 season in April and has since taken time off-court to address persistent wrist and ankle issues. The Brit underwent surgeries to remove bone spurs on her wrists and carried out an ankle procedure.

Despite Raducanu’s inactivity, around 9.6M people have searched the Brit on the internet across various platforms. Taking to social media on Wednesday (October 25), the former US Open champion expressed her appreciation for her dedicated followers.  “a lot of love,” Emma Raducanu wrote on Instagram.


World No. 2 Iga Swiatek enjoys a massive lead at the top of the list with around 15.6 million searches, followed by US Open champion Coco Gauff with 10.1 million searches. Naomi Osaka and Jessica Pegula also have secured spots in the top 10, occupying the No. 9 and No. 10 positions respectively.  Raducanu last played at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix, where she suffered a first-round defeat against Jelena Ostapenko. With rehabilitation in full swing, the Brit is expected to return to tour at the start of the 2024 season, possibly at the Australian Open.
