Raducanu content to wait on coach call

British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu has confirmed she will not rush into finding a new permanent coach following her breakthrough Grand Slam victory last month.

Emma Raducanu is 1/1 to win the WTA Indian Wells this month.

Brit enjoying year to remember

Raducanu, 18, defied all expectations to win the women's US Open in New York in September, defeating Leylah Fernandez in the final 6-4 6-3.

The victory meant Raducanu became the first British woman in 44 years to be crowned a women's Grand Slam singles champion and the youngest Briton to ever win a Grand Slam.

But not long after her triumph, the teenager parted ways with coach Andrew Richardson, who had been hired to guide her through the summer tournaments in the USA.

Raducanu calm over coach call

Raducanu will play her first match since victory at Flushing Meadows when she enters the WTA Indian Wells at the second round stage with either Maria Camila Osorio Serrano or Aliaksandra Sasnovich set to await her.

Speaking about the search for a coach, she said: "Jeremy [Bates] is part of women's tennis at the LTA so while he's here, he's helping me out.

"But going forwards I'm just going to wait and try and find the right person - I'm not going to rush into anything - I want to make sure I make the right decision.

"I'm just looking for the general things in a coach, really. Someone you get along with well, and someone who can push you."
