Emma Raducanu’s schedule: What does the UK Australian Open schedule look like?
This has been a remarkable year for Emma Raducanu, but how is her schedule looking ahead of the 2022 Australian Open?
After starting the season almost 400th in the world, the Briton reached the fourth round at Wimbledon and won her first Grand Slam title at the US Open.
Her victory in New York catapulted her to global stardom and fans have been eagerly awaiting to watch her games ever since.
With his competitive season over, Raducanu is expected to compete in two exhibition tournaments again before the end of the year.
First of all, she will take part in the Tennis Champions tournament at the Royal Albert Hall in London, where she will face Romania’s Elena-Gabriela Ruse. The match will take place on Sunday, November 28.

After that, Raducanu will travel to Abu Dhabi to participate in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship. The three-day exhibition event begins on December 16, where the Briton faces Olympic champion Belinda Benic – whom she beat in the quarterfinals of the US Open.
Three-time major winner Andy Murray will also be present at the tournament and the tennis icon has said he is delighted to represent Great Britain with Raducanu.
“I can’t wait to go back,” he said. “With Emma also playing on day one, we will be carrying the British tennis flag and looking to put on a solid demonstration.”
The outlook for next year and the schedule for the start of the 2022 season are now announced.
Adelaide International is the first and starts on January 2. Polish star Iga Świątek is the defending champion, while Ashleigh Barty has also won the competition in the past.
The updated schedule sees the game concentrated in New South Wales, with Sydney the epicenter of a fortnight of action that includes the ATP Cup starting January 1, followed by the new Sydney Tennis Classic, starting January 9. .
Raducanu has pledged to play at the Australian Open although she has yet to announce what other events she will attend.
There is currently uncertainty among players, given the strict restrictions in Australia currently and some may choose not to participate in warm-up tournaments if the demands are too much to handle.
Unlike the US Open, however, the Briton won’t have to go through qualifying for this Grand Slam and has earned an automatic place in the main draw, which starts on January 17.
The 19-year-old is currently ranked 19th in the world and is almost guaranteed to be a seed for the first major of the year.
Still, this will be the first time she has played in the Australian Grand Slam and the Briton will face a difficult task adjusting to the grueling temperatures that have caused problems for players in the past.
