Fans support Emma Raducanu as she recovers from surgery for multiple injuries

Emma Raducanu announced recently that she would be stepping away from the tennis court to recover from multiple injuries.

According to CNN, the 20-year-old will have surgery on both wrists and one of her ankles. She will miss both the French Open and Wimbledon as she recovers.

Raducanu posted about the injuries on social media, showing a picture of herself in a hospital bed with a cast on her arm. She also included a picture of a handwritten note.

“It is safe to say the last 10 months have been difficult as I dealt with a recurring injury on a bone of both hands,” she wrote in the note.

“I tried my best to manage the pain and play through it for most of this year and end of last year by reducing practice load dramatically, missing weeks of training as well as cutting last season short to try heal it. Unfortunately it’s not enough.”

Raducanu received criticism from some fans for her poor form over the past few months. She thanked the fans that stood by her.

“It pains me that I will miss the summer events and I tried to downplay the issues, so I thank all my fans who continued to support me when you didn’t know the facts,” she wrote.

“Looking forward to seeing you all back out there.”

Fans, media members and fellow athletes have offered Raducanu support on social media. One fan account is even attempting to print out nice messages and mail them to Raducanu.
