Emma Raducanu to face Naomi Osaka and may also face 16-year-old star ahead of Australian Open

Emma Raducanu is gearing up for a charity match against Naomi Osaka ahead of the Australian Open, marking a positive return to the court following surgery to address persistent injuries. The British tennis sensation, who underwent wrist and ankle surgery in 2023, demonstrated her readiness for a comeback at the ASB Classic in New Zealand. Despite a loss to Elina Svitolina, Raducanu’s entry into the Australian Open’s main draw is secured due to other players withdrawing. Eager to enhance her match fitness, the 2021 US Open champion has expanded her schedule, including a charity match against Osaka on January 9 as part of her preparations for the tournament.
