Emma Raducanu looks set to suffer a big drop in her ranking as her standing will fall for a third-successive week after she was forced to pull out of this week’s Transylvania Open with a new injury. The 19-year-old has been plagued by physical issues this season, with her wrist being the problem this time.
Raducanu recently withdrew from this week’s Transylvania Open citing a wrist injury. It came after the world No 68 lost to Daria Kasatkina in the first round of Ostrava last week, meaning her season has presumably come to an end with the Guadalajara WTA 1000 likely out of the question.
The British No 1 has seen her ranking drop slightly over the last two weeks, going from No 66 to 67 last week and down one place again to world No 68 today. And she is set to suffer a significant drop as she is unable to defend her quarter-final run from last year’s Transylvania Open.
It means that 60 of her 852 ranking points will fall off next Monday, giving her just 792 points in the standings. While her ranking will also depend on the results of other players, Raducanu looks set to drop to around world No 75.
