Emma Raducanu retires in tears from the ASB Classic 11 days before the Australian Open due to an ankle injury.

Emma Raducanu criticised the “slippery” courts at the ASB Classic in Auckland after retiring from her second-round match with an ankle injury.

The Briton left the court in tears after rolling her ankle during the second set against Slovakia’s Viktoria Kuzmova, with the score 6-0 5-7.

It is just 11 days before the Australian Open begins in Melbourne.

“The courts are incredibly slick, so to be honest it’s not a surprise that this happened to someone,” said Raducanu.
