Russian coach left Emma Raducanu due to 'red flags

Oct 27, 2022

Emma Raducanu's former coach, Dmitry Tursunov, has described "red flags" in her camp which pushed him to end their partnership.

Earlier this month, in her latest coaching shake-up, the former US Open champion announced Tursunov's exit. They had been working together for just two and a half months.

Russian-born Tursunov immediately moved on with Olympic champion Belinda Bencic - the third player he has coached this year. Despite the quick turnover, he has insisted a rival offer with Bencic was not the reason.

“I was walking away from Emma regardless of whether there was another [player] available or not," Tursunov said in an interview with TennisMajors.com. "We didn’t agree on the terms and there were some red flags that just couldn’t be ignored.”
