Raducanu tests positive for Covid, hopes to recover soon

Emma Raducanu hopes to "get back soon" after testing positive for Covid-19 and withdrawing from the Mubadala World Tennis Championships. The US Open champion was due to play Olympic gold medallist Belinda Bencic in the exhibition event in Abu Dhabi.

Raducanu, who became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam title in New York, is isolating. She is scheduled to play in a WTA Melbourne warm-up tournament next month before the Australian Open. I was very much looking forward to playing in front of the fans here in Abu Dhabi,bRaducanu said. I'm isolating as per rules and hopefully will be able to get back soon.
