Emma Radocano is looking for a fourth coach after her split from Turbine Peltz | Emma Radukano

Emma Radocano has split from her coach, Turpin Peltz, after working together for only five months. Due to the need to start a “new training paradigm”, Raducanu will once again play without a coach.

“I would like to thank Turpin for his training, professionalism and dedication over the past half year,” Radocano said in a statement. “He has a big heart and I’ve enjoyed strong chemistry during our time together.”

Raducano will compete in this week’s Madrid Open, being drawn against Teresa Martinkova of the Czech Republic in the opening round on Thursday. She is accompanied in Spain by Ian Bates, president of women’s tennis at the Lebanese Transparency Association (LTA). “I feel the best direction for my development is to move to a new training model with LTA support in the meantime,” she said.

The split means Raducanu will be looking for a fourth coach last year, an unusually fast turnover even on a choppy tennis training circuit. These short-term coaching partnerships were a common theme in Raducanu’s young, unconventional career, as Raducanu and her father Ian had already developed a reputation for getting information from coaches and then quickly moving on to the next.

Radocano worked with top British coach Nigel Sears before hiring Andrew Richardson to back her on her first long trip outside the US last summer, which ended in a shock victory at the US Open. after her decision Not continuing to work with RichardsonRaducanu hired Peltz, the German coach who made Angelique Kerber a No. 1 player since her teenage years, citing the need to work with a more experienced coach who could help her with her unexpected leap to the Tour.

However, his experience seemed to have had a limited effect on her in their short time together. Instead, Raducanu’s season so far has been defined by the difficulties of immediately following such a life-changing victory in New York, her inexperience reflected in her performance, and the various injuries she sustained as her body got used to. For life in professional tennis. She collected a 5-7 record with Peltz this season.

The past few weeks have seen a positive turn, as Raducanu followed up with her first victory on clay and her debut in the Billie Jean King Cup in Prague by reaching the quarter-finals of the Porsche Grand Prix in Stuttgart.
