Emma Raducanu says she is looking forward to working with new coach Torben Beltz.
Raducanu was speaking after her end of season loss in Austria where she went out to Chinese qualifier Wang Xinyu.
“It’s obviously a great privilege to be working with such an experienced coach,” she said.
“I’m definitely very excited to work with him throughout the pre-season and into next year. I’m feeling excited about all the work that is to come.
“I think he brings a lot of experience. Obviously, he’s worked with Kerber, who’s such a great player and has done extremely well, winning three slams.
“I think that experience definitely helps with someone as inexperienced as me.
“He can help guide me through, which I feel really confident about, and also he’s a really positive, cheerful guy who brings great energy to the team so I think that’s also important when you’re traveling on the road for quite a long time on the tour.”
