Emma Raducanu shared the first pictures showing her outside of the hospital, where she had undergone the recent hand and ankle surgeries. In the pictures, Raducanu appears happy to spend time with her friends, eating chocolate and laying on the sofa.
“recent recovery roundup,” Emma captioned the photo dump.
Before posting the above pictures, Raducanu updated her fans and friends right from the hospital bed.
In the update, Emma included a photo of herself and a page filled with words explaining how she felt.
Konta thinks Raducanu will recover well
Johanna Konta believes Emma Raducanu will go past the multiple surgeries and come back stronger on the tennis courts.
“Overall, I can imagine that this surgery wasn’t a surprise for Emma. She’s probably had enough time to work up her feelings and go through everything in her head so now it’s going to be the big recovery process. I don’t think it would have been a shock to her which is why she seems in decent spirits.
I don’t think her age is a worry. Because she is 20, she’s got a long time because she’s at the early stages of her career. She’s going to have enough time to keep building up her body, keep building up her strength. Obviously, you don’t want to be young and having surgery.
However, there have been a lot of athletes throughout history that have had surgery young and they still come back stronger, come back better and do brilliant things in the sport. It is a hurdle, but one that she is well equipped to overcome and she has time on her side,” Konta told Sky Sports as previously quoted.
