After Emma Raducanu crashed out of Indian Wells in the opening round, fans have been left wondering when the tennis star will be playing again.
The Brit was defeated 6-2, 6-4 by Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus at Indian Wells, only the third WTA tournament of her career. The loss ended a winning run of 10 matches.
Raducanu did not seem too deflated by the result, telling reporters she would eventually be "thanking this moment."
"So, that's the lesson I think, that you can easily get sucked into being so focused on the result and getting disappointed,” she said. "I mean, I'm 18 years old. I need to cut myself some slack.
"I'm still very, very new to the tour. I think that experience just comes from playing week in, week out and experiencing all these different things."
So, when is Raducanu set to play again? GiveMeSport Women runs through her upcoming tournaments.
Kremlin Cup, Russia, October 18th to 24th
Raducanu will next appear at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow. The hard-court tournament offers 500 ranking points to the winner.
Previous winners of the Kremlin Cup include reigning Olympic champion Belinda Bencic, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and Victoria Azarenka.
Transylvania Open, Romania, October 25th to 31st
The Transylvania Open is set to take place in Cluj at the end of the month. Although it only has 250 ranking points on offer, Raducanu will be able to return to the home country of her father.
Belgian Elise Mertens and Estonia’s Anett Kontaveit will be competing, as will Raducanu's idol Simona Halep. The draw could see the pair meet in the semi-final or final if they progress that far.
Linz Open, Austria, November 6th to 12th
Raducanu is currently scheduled to take part in the Linz Open, a tournament previously won by players such as Aryna Sabalenka and Coco Gauff.
She could skip this tournament if she qualifies for the WTA Finals, however. The end-of-season finale is scheduled to take place in Guadalajara from November 10th to 17th.
The top eight players in the world compete at the WTA Finals, but Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka both look set to skip the tournament.
As a result, Raducanu would only need to rise up to 10th in the standings from her current 15th place to qualify. She is currently on 2,282 points while 10th place Elise Mertens is on 2,438, making a place at the WTA Finals very possible.
Mubadala World Tennis Championship, UAE, December 16th to 18th
Raducanu has been announced as the first player competing at the Mubadala World Tennis Championship in the United Arab Emirates. The 13th edition of the event will take place at the Zayed Sports City in Abu Dhabi.
The Mubadala World Tennis Championship is not played in a tournament format – instead there is just one women’s match. Raducanu’s opponent is set to be announced soon.
Jeļena Ostapenko, Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova have all won the event, with Serena Williams also competing in 2017 and 2018.News Now - Sport News
