‘I’m really excited’ – Emma Raducanu confirms plans to play Australian Open

Emma Raducanu has committed herself to playing the Australian Open after losing in the Transylvania Open.

The US Open champion suffered a disappointing loss to to Marta Kostyuk in the quarterfinals in Cluj.

However, she was upbeat despite the loss, revealing she will, injury permitting, definitely be making her senior debut in Melbourne in January.

“I’m really excited to go to Melbourne,” Raducanu said.

“I played the juniors there and it’s an incredible city but obviously the pros is different.

“But I’m excited, it’s going to be my first time going there as a pro. So it’s going to be a new experience, a new locker room.

“I am going to have to find my way around again and ask for directions but I’m excited to go!”

For the moment, confusion surrounds the Australian Open with regards the entry requirements for players.

The Australian Prime Minister has claimed unvaccinated players will be granted visas to enter the country if they complete two weeks quarantine upon arrival.

However, Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews has repeatedly said players will be denied entry to the state without first being vaccinated.

That has left many players unsure about whether or not they are able, or willing, to take part in the tournament, but Raducanu clearly isn’t one of them.
