EMMA RADUCANU is making good progress in her recovery from injury and will take her place in the Wimbledon draw today.
The 19-year-old managed only seven games of her first grass-court tournament of the season in Nottingham a fortnight ago, before pulling out after suffering a side strain.
Raducanu was not ready to return for this week’s WTA tournament in Eastbourne but has been practising at the All England Club this week and the PA news agency understands she is on course to be fit for the Championships.
The British number one’s team are not taking anything for granted, though, and will monitor her carefully over the next couple of days before a final decision is made.
Raducanu, who made headlines with her debut run to the fourth round at Wimbledon last summer before going on to win the US Open, is the 10th seed in the women’s singles.
Meanwhile, in a break with tradition, Rafael Nadal, Matteo Berrettini and Novak Djokovic all practised on Centre Court yesterday.
The two main show courts are normally off limits for players until the first match on the opening Monday but, after a number of incidents of players slipping in the early days, Wimbledon has decided to allow a limited amount of practice to bed the surface down.
