US Open champion Emma Raducanu to play in Austria next month

The Brit teenager is playing her first tournament this week at Indian Wells since her win at Flushing Meadows

Emma Raducanu has added another tournament to her busy autumn schedule.

The US Open champion, who will play her first tournament since her stunning New York triumph at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells this week, has entered the Upper Austria Ladies Linz next month.

Having taken three weeks off to digest her achievement, Raducanu is poised for a busy month.

After Indian Wells, the 18-year-old has entered the Kremlin Cup in Moscow beginning on October 18 and the Transylvania Open in her father’s home country of Romania the following week.

The Linz tournament begins on November 6, but Raducanu would be forced into a rethink should she qualify for the WTA Finals in Guadalajara, with the two events overlapping.

The top eight players of the season qualify for the season-ending showpiece. Raducanu currently sits 15th but there are major doubts over whether Ashleigh Barty and Naomi Osaka will play and there are plenty of points still up for grabs.

Raducanu will play her first match in Indian Wells on either Friday or Saturday, with seeds receiving first-round byes.

She is without a permanent coach having split from Andrew Richardson despite their remarkable New York success but has been seen on court in California with Jeremy Bates.
