“Being interrupted by a strange injury, spraining my ankle is quite disappointing, also in the first week. I thought I was playing pretty decent tennis. The courts are incredibly smooth, very slippery, so to be honest, it’s not a surprise that this has happened to anyone,” said Emma Raducanu.

In response, tournament director Nicholas Lamperin said the dissatisfaction was understandable, but there was nothing wrong with the courts. “Every player works a lot in the off-season and that’s not what you expect when you play a tournament in the first week. It could have happened on outdoor courts too. We regret the situation, but we also say that these courts are ready to play”, concluded the director.
