Emma Raducanu is still on the hunt for a new coach.

The US Open champion parted ways with coach Andrew Richardson after a trial arrangement, saying that she was looking for someone with more tour experience. At just 18 years old, she said she needs more guidance after having won her first Grand Slam.

After losing in her debut at Indian Wells, Raducanu once again stressed that she’s still on the market.

“If any experienced coaches are looking, you know where to find me,” Raducanu said.

“I’ve told you guys, I’m looking for someone more experienced. I don’t know what’s going on. I don’t know what’s going to happen next. But I’m sure that my team and everyone will be able to try and find a solution.”

She was helped at Indian Wells by LTA coach and former player Jeremy Bates on a temporary basis.

“I wasn’t joking,” she continued. “If anyone knows any experienced coaches…”

Physio Will Herbert, who was in her box in Queens, was not with Raducanu in California but could return to her team.
