From now on she will no longer have the element of surprise on her side.
The likes of Ashleigh Barty, Aryna Sabalenka and Karolina Pliskova have all seen what Raducanu can do, and will be aware of the danger she poses if drawn against them.
With that in mind, the 18-year-old has already returned to hard training ahead of her new competitive outing, and shared an update of her workout on Instagram.
She posted a short video clip of herself pounding away on the treadmill in a gym, along with the line: “back with a sweat on.”
It’s the first footage of her back in training since she returned to home in Bromley, Kent, last week, and her participation at the BNP Paribas Open will be accompanied by frenzied media attention.
