Emma Raducanu: Five tennis coaches who could lead US Open winner to more Grand Slam glory

Emma Raducanu revealed she split with her coach Andrew Richardson following her victory at the US Open.

A former Davis Cup player, Richardson coached Raducanu for two years at youth level. He linked up with the teenage star again in July on a short-term deal which covered the US Open.

Prior to Richardson, the 18-year-old had been coached for three years by Nigel Sears, who stepped aside after Raducanu reached the round of 16 at Wimbledon.

Raducanu has rocketed up the WTA rankings since her unexpected victory at the US Open. She began the Grand Slam as a qualifier ranked 150th in the world, and has now risen to world number 22.

The Briton revealed she was looking for a coach with WTA experience, although she said she did not have one in mind and would not come to a decision until the end of the season.

“I’m looking for someone who has been at that level and knows what it takes,” she said. “And especially right now because I’m so new to it, I really need someone to guide me who’s already been through that.”

GiveMeSport Women runs through five coaches who could help Raducanu to more Grand Slam glory:

Darren Cahill

Raducanu has already been heavily linked with Darren Cahill. The 55-year-old has worked with multiple former world number ones, including Ana Ivanovic and Simona Halep.

Cahill took Halep to the top in 2017 and 2018, and helped the Romanian win the French Open. He has also worked with Lleyton Hewitt, Andre Agassi and Andy Murray.

Halep split with Cahill just last week, making the Australian coach a free agent. He fits Raducanu’s requirements perfectly, making him a favourite to be hired by the teenage talent.

Esteban Carril

Esteban Carril is known best as the coach who transformed the fortunes of British tennis player Johanna Konta. While working with the Spaniard, Konta rose from outside the top 100 in the world to the top 10 in just over a year.

Carril also has links with the Lawn Tennis Association. He was hired to work at one of the organisation’s flagship academies in 2019, although he did quit just over a year later.

Nonetheless, Carril’s association with British tennis may put him in a good position to become Raducanu’s new coach.

Patrick Mouratoglou

If Raducanu wants to fulfill her dreams of becoming one of the best tennis players in the world, Patrick Mouratoglou would be the perfect option.

The Frenchman, one of the most successful tennis coaches of all time, has worked with Serena Williams since 2012. He has helped the icon to three Wimbledon titles, three US Open titles, a pair of French Open and Australian Open victories, and an Olympic gold medal.

Mouratoglou also has a reputation for working with up and coming talents, including Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and Coco Gauff.

Nigel Sears

Although an unlikely option, Raducanu could return to Nigel Sears, her coach for three years before her US Open success.

Sears, father-in-law of British tennis legend Andy Murray, previously coached Raducanu on a consultancy basis, so could come back on a more permanent basis.

Indeed, the coach certainly has excellent experience in women’s tennis, working with Ana Ivanovic, Daniela Hantuchová, and Anett Kontaveit.

Tim Henman

Tim Henman is a rather far-fetched suggestion – the former British number one has never coached a player before. Instead, he has acted as a pundit and commentator at major tennis tournaments. 

Henman has a close relationship with Raducanu, however, and due to his role as an Amazon Prime pundit, was by her side for the entirety of the US Open. He was often seen advising and encouraging the young star.

It is very unlikely, but perhaps Henman will formalise his relationship with Raducanu and become her coach.
