Emma Raducanu receives funny coaching proposal from a fellow player



One of Emma Raducanu’s potential Wimbledon opponents has expressed interest in serving as her future coach. The 2021 US Open champion has gone through several trainers in her attempt to return to her previous level of play at Flushing Meadows, as injuries have impeded her progress in recent months.

Before the year’s first Grand Slam, the 21-year-old underwent surgery on both of her wrists and ankles last year. She then made a comeback in Australia. To focus on the approaching grass-court season, where a difficult opponent might be waiting, she withdrew from the French Open qualification.

Even though Ons Jabeur is still chasing her first Grand Slam triumph, she has advanced to the last two Wimbledon singles tournament finals, demonstrating her ability at the British Major.  Jabeur said in an interview that Raducanu is the one player on the WTA that she would like to teach in the future, and she has reached out to him to offer her skills. Jabeur said: “I would say Emma Raduccanu. I have a good relationship with her and I think I can help a little bit with some advice. I mean, I would not be the main coach; I would be the consultant, I guess, for a new job. Emma, if you’re hiring, I’m available.”

Currently the world no.9, the Tunisian has a compiled 7-9 match record in 2024. Jabeur is currently competing at the French Open where she beat the world no.124 Sachia Vickery 6-3 6-2.  Ons Jabeur will come up against the world no.77 Maria Camila Osorio Serrano in the 2nd round. Their actual record is 2-0 for Jabeur.

The Tunisian won 5 titles in her career: 1 on hard courts, 2 on clay courts and 2 on grass courts.  Emma Raducanu and Ons Jabeur faced off only on 1 occasion. Their current head to head is 1-0 for Jabeur. When they played, Ons Jabeur won 6-4 6-1 in the 2nd round in Abu Dhabi (Mubadala Abu Dhabi Open) on the 7th of February 2024.  In the following video you can watch the highlights.
