“Yeah, now I feel a little bit better. I had some time. During the match, I’d say, like, third set I was 30-Love up serving. Then all of a sudden just felt so sick, just really like weak and nauseous.Throughout the third set I think everyone could see it was a bit of a battle. Like physically, body-wise, I felt fine. It was more I was throwing up in my mouth. Then after the match, it came out. Now I’m okay. Yeah, I’ll get over it. It just sucks with the timing,” Raducanu said.

Emma Raducanu “Tougher” than before

Even after harsh criticisms aimed at her and failures in the second round of the Australian Open, she is working on her fitness and trying to be ‘tougher’ than she was before.

“Honestly I’ve been in that situation before in matches, whether it was with illness or injury, and retired a few times. To be honest, with what I went through last year, you feel awful right now, at some point I couldn’t really see the ball very well, but I think with everything I went through last year, it’s made me so much tougher,” Emma Raducanu said.

“There was no way I was going to pull out. She was going to have to beat me, and she did. She served it out. I think the last year off and also just with the amount of niggles and everything that I had, the setbacks, it did make me a lot tougher,” She added

though Emma Raducanu is getting mentally stronger through the years, she will be looking forward to working on her fitness and performing better in the coming tournaments.
