Sensational news. The winner of the US Open will not play in Roland Garros Tennis

When Emma Raducanu won the US Open in 2021, you could assume that a new star in women’s tennis was on the rise. However, it turned out to be a one-time blip, as she did not even achieve this success in any of the subsequent Grand Slam tournaments. The last few months have been completely unsuccessful for her, and this does not have to be the end.

A few days ago we reported that the organizers of Roland Garros made an unexpected decision regarding “wild cards”. The opportunity to play in the main ladder was given to, among others, Richard Gasquet, Ajla Tomljanović and Alize Cornet (who will retire after this tournament). However, this group did not include Simona Halep, Dominic Thiem or Emma Raducanu.

Emma Raducanu withdrew from qualifying for Roland Garros. “Must Have Hope”

British media reported that the player was withdrawing from the competition in Strasbourg to qualify for the Grand Slam event. Journalist Stuart Fraser revealed on Sunday morning that the 21-year-old unexpectedly withdrew from the qualifications just before the draw. Despite this, he still has a chance to play on the courts in Paris.

“She is third on the reserve list, so she must hope that at least three players will withdraw from the competition before the qualifications,” we read. They will start on Monday at 9. Fraser also added that Raducanu has been training on courts this week… with a hard surface, which may go some way to explaining her decision to withdraw from the competition.

Raducanu is not the only player whose performance in this tournament was questionable. Not so long ago we wrote that Jessica Pegula is struggling with an injury and everything indicates that she will not be able to return to the court so quickly. However, we will definitely not see Karolina Muchova, the 2023 finalist, who has wrist problems. Moreover, Elena Rybakina, who was supposed to defend last year’s title, recently withdrew from the competition in Rome. Therefore, her performance also remains unknown.

There is no doubt that Iga Świątek is the favorite to win Roland Garros. Our player has been going through an outstanding period recently and is on a roll of 12 victories in a row. Not only did she win the competitions in Madrid and Rome, but she had already triumphed on the courts in Paris three times in the past. The last time was last year, when she defeated Karolina Muchova 6:2, 5:7, 6:4 in the final.
