Emma Raducanu enjoys Mexico fashion show as injury update emerges

Emma Raducanu made her first public appearance since undergoing triple surgery as she attended a fashion show in Mexico. The British No 1 is set to spend several months on the sidelines following operations on one ankle and both wrists. And Raducanu could be seen sporting bandages in an update on her progress during the fashion show.

Raducanu recently underwent the last of her three surgeries after announcing an extended break from competition. The 20-year-old had been struggling with wrist injuries for almost a year and also turned her ankle during her first event of the season in Auckland.

After pulling out of the Madrid Open at the 11th hour, the Brit took to Instagram to reveal that she would be missing the summer events to have three surgeries and has since completed them all. With Raducanu now sidelined from Wimbledon and expected to miss the US Open, she has been enjoying events away from tennis.

As a brand ambassador of fashion house Dior, the former world No 10 flew to Mexico for their latest Cruise fashion show and was seen with a bandage on one of her wrists during the event. “Just saw the show here in Mexico City, and it was stunning and it was a really nice thing to be a part of,” she said in a video for Vogue.

Raducanu also shared a series of snaps from her time in Mexico to her Instagram account, revealing that she also still had a bandage on her ankle while her other hand had a single piece of surgical tape. Announcing the news of her triple surgery earlier this month, the 2021 US Open champion wrote: “It is safe to say the last 10 months have been difficult as I dealt with a recurring injury on a bone of both hands.

“I tried my best to manage the pain and play through it for most of this year and end of last year by reducing practice load dramatically, missing weeks of training as well as cutting last season short to try heal it, unfortunately it’s not enough.”

The top-ranked Brit also said she had tried to downplay the injury problems before finally conceding and having surgery. “I’m having a minor procedure done on both hands to resolve the issues. I’m disappointed to share that I will be out for the next few months and while I am at it will have another minor procedure that is due on my ankle,” she explained.

Raducanu had already undergone the first hand procedure when she shared the update, and had her ankle surgery a few days later. As of last Monday she had officially completed all three operations and confirmed the news with a photo of herself in her hospital bed, writing: “3/3”.
